More than a 'Plain' Ordination

In the rolling plains of a farm town in Iowa, Deacon Joseph Lappe, MIC, was ordained to the sacred priesthood in the same parish where he was baptized.

The Most Reverend R. Walker Nickless, Bishop of Sioux City, Iowa, presided at the Holy Mass of Ordination on the morning of Saturday, July 28, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Willey, Iowa - where the newly ordained Fr. Joseph grew up.

In his homily before a packed church, Bishop Walker emphasized the rarity of presiding at an Ordination in a priest's home parish.

The soldiers' angry words being shouted in German contrasted harshly with the peaceful words of the Eucharistic Prayer inside the parish church in Rosica, Belarus.
