Father Ryan was ordained December 17, 1966 at the altar of the Chair at St Peter's Basilica.  He said his first Mass the following day at the Church of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale.  The pilgrims to Rome will have the opportunity to gather with Father Ryan at Sant'Andrea al Quirinale for Mass in the course of their pilgrimage.  Our parish celebration of Father Ryan's 40th anniversary will be on the Feast of St. James, July 23, 2006.  Save the date!  Click here to see photos of the anniversary Mass in Rome.
