Mass: First Mass

Mass: First Mass

Fr. Bob Stephan, SJ, celebrates Mass at his home parish, the Franciscan St. Clement in St. Bernard (OH), earlier this month. A member of the California Jesuit province, he was trained as a lawyer before joining the order. Ordained June 8th in Los Angeles, he celebrated Mass there, but returned to Cincinnati for his “real” first Mass with family and childhood friends. Don’t neglect Mass today!

“It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,

always and everywhere to give You thanks,

Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,

through Christ our Lord.”
