This past Sunday, the Most Rev. Edward J. Slattery, Bishop of Tulsa, ordained into the holy priesthood of Jesus Christ two Thomas Aquinas College alumni: Rev. Patrick Carter, O.S.B. (’05), and Rev. Peter Miller, O.S.B. (’07). Fr. Carter and Fr. Miller are two of the 11 Thomas Aquinas College alumni serving at Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek Abbey in Hulbert, Oklahoma.

Among the alumni and friends of the College who traveled to Northeastern Oklahoma for the occasion were President Michael F. McLean, Governor Lloyd Noble II, and Dr. John Nieto (’89). A senior tutor, Dr. Nieto gave the new priests a small foretaste of their monastic life when he taught them Gregorian chant in the College’s Schola Cantorum.

With these two latest ordinations, the College can now claim — by God’s grace — 64 alumni priests! Deo gratias!
