I’m afraid I don’t have much time to post too many photos or write at length here, but I wanted to share with you a few photos from our resident provincial photographer, Br. Octavio Duran, OFM, who so graciously sent this along this afternoon.  Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was the ordaining bishop (notice that he’s wearing a Franciscan habit — five years ago he was affiliated to the Order of Friars Minor, making him an honorary Franciscan friar with the right to wear the OFM habit, which he does with great joy and pride).  The bearded friar is my classmate, Steve DeWitt, OFM, and the bald guy is me, Daniel Horan, OFM.  There will be more photos to come, but here’s a little overview.  Thanks for the continued prayerful support!

  1. Just got home and went right to your website as I knew you would have photos! What a wonderful day for you and your family. This was the first Ordination for me and I don’t think it can be topped by any other. It was so special and to have Cardinal McCarrick there was awesome. I wish you the best in all of your endeavors, especially earning your doctorate in Theology and look forward to hearing more about the new books.

    May God continue to bless you always.

    1. I was praying for you today Dan. Congratulations and may God continue to bless you and every day!
      Your Sister,
      Annie Dougherty, OSF

  2. Continued prayers, and may the Holy Spirit continue to guide and protect you. Sorry, I could not make the blessed event, but the parish had confirmation this morning at the same time. Please send me a note (email) of your mass schedule while you are in the area. I need all the indulgence blessing from a first year priest as I can get 😉

  3. Dear Father Dan,

    Many blessings to you as you celebrate and share with Our High Priest the gifts of the eternal Priesthood. Sorry I could not attend your ordination today as I had to take my son to an emergent orthodontist appointment. I would most welcome your priestly blessing sometime in the near future. Please rest assured of my prayers and that of my family.

  4. Congrats on this wonderful day. Why does it take so long to be a priest? Doesn’t seem like it would take to long to learn how to say the mass and offer the other sacraments.
