The staff and faculty of The Rome Experience congratulate Fr. Pedro Saucedo, Jr. (RE ’14) and Fr. Matthew Wheeler (RE ’14) on their ordination to the priesthood! They were among nine new priests ordained for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles by Archbishop José Gomez on June 5, 2018.

Sharing the news on Instagram, Archbishop Gomez (@archbishopgomez) commented: “My dear #NewLAPriests, you are called to be holy, but you are not ‘perfect.’ You are as human as the people you serve — and you always will be. Never forget that. It will keep you humble. And humility is the key to being a disciple and the key to being a good priest.”

May our Lady, Mother of Priests, always accompany you in your daily lives as you serve the souls that her Son entrusts to you!
