Rev. Allen E. Navarro was among seven men ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Patrick J. McGrath on Saturday, May 23rd, at St. Frances Cabrini Church in San Jose. Fr. Allen presided at a Thanksgiving Mass here at the Church of the Resurrection the next day. Click here for pictures of Fr. Allen’s Mass of Thanksgiving. (Pictures of the ordination will be posted soon.)

A video was created by members of Fr. Allen’s family to be shown at the reception after his Thanksgiving Mass. It describes his journey to the priesthood.  This video can also be seen on the Dailymotion website by clicking here.

We congratulate Fr. Allen on his ordination to the priesthood and promise to keep him and his ministry in our prayers.
