Fr. Berhorst ordained to Priesthood; told by bishop to reconcile, heal

As his brother priests applaud, Father Brad Berhorst steps out of the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Jefferson City following his ordination to the Priesthood on June 29.

The Church stands to benefit profoundly from the witness of a new generation of priests.
Entering a broader mission field in thinner numbers, these new priests will play an essential role in helping God reconcile, heal and unite His people.
“You are a providential sign of hope for us, who are in need of even more priests,” Bishop W. Shawn McKnight told Father Brad Berhorst shortly before ordaining him to the Holy Priesthood on June 29 in the Cathedral of St. Joseph.
“Your joyful service as a priest will help the whole Church to witness Christ’s resurrection in our day,” he said.
Several hundred people from all over the diocese, along with family and several of Fr. Berhorst’s classmates, attended the Ordination Mass.
