2022 Ordinations to the Priesthood

May 19, 2022

The Diocese of El Paso rejoices in the ordination of five new priests and gives thanks for the blessing of their vocations.

Most Rev. Mark J. Seitz, D.D. will ordain Astry Déraly, César García-Ortega, Edroud Jean, José William Arévelo Narváez, and Sergio Legarreta Carrasco to the priesthood on Friday, May 27 at 6:30pm at St. Stephen Parish.

Our newest priest, Alfonso Coronado, was ordained at St. Patrick Cathedral in January of this year and serves in West Texas. All six men will serve in the Diocese of El Paso.

The Rite of Ordination and the Ordination Mass comprise one of the most beautiful, solemn, and joyful liturgies celebrated in the Catholic Church. Please join us for the celebration.

We ask for continued prayers for Astry, César, Edroud, José William, and Sergio and for our men in formation. Congratulations to the newest priests and their families!
