Quinto, OFMCap., was ordained to the Priesthood by Most Rev. Reynaldo G. Evangelista, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Imus, in a Holy Eucharist at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Tagaytay City where these three brothers spent their four-year Theological studies. Concelebrating with the bishop during the Eucharistic Celebration were Br. Eugenio Lopez, OFMCap, Provincial Minister, and other Capuchin brother-priests and guest priests.
In the homily of Bishop Rey, he gave emphasis on bearing trials and carrying the cross and he also challenged the ordinandi to serve the people of God joyfully and with genuine smiles like what St. Crispin of Viterbo has done.
Brs. Deo, Franz and Paul, at the end of the Mass, gratefully thanked the Lord for the gift of vocation, the Capuchin Order and their parents and relatives who traveled from different to witness this precious moments of their lives. Agape was shared after the celebration.
