Rev. Mr. Philip Gerard Johnson will be ordained priest on January 7, 2017!
I was honored to receive an invitation in the mail for his ordination. I remember well meeting for the first time Philip and his parents outside the entrance to the Vatican Museums. Later, I met his parents in Piazza Navona, and his father was kind enough to offer me a beer!
Philip is one of the best. A book could be written on the witness of his incredible story, an adventure which brought him from the U.S. Navy to the altar of ordination!
