Carmelites Celebrate Ordination and First Mass of Nepi Willemsen

June 1, 2017 |

Friends, family traveled from all over the globe–and fellow Carmelites and priests from Romania, Trinidad, Vietnam and Germany–to attend the ordination to the priesthood of R. Nepomuk Willemsen OCarm on May 27. The ordination was presided over by Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson, AZ at beautiful Saint Gabriel’s Catholic Church in Washington DC. Fr. Nepi’s first Mass also took place at Saint Gabriel’s, where he spent this past year helping out as a deacon. The parish community put together a reception afterwards. See the gallery below (special thanks to Jorge Monterroso for capturing some of the key moments).
