Fr. Gregory Eichman FSSP: First Mass in Fort Wayne

Having been Ordained by Bp. Fabian Bruskewitz on Saturday, May 19, 2012, Fr. Gregory Eichman FSSP returned home to offer First Mass in the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend at the church of St. Peter’s. Assisting Father Eichman was the pastor of Sacred Heart in Fort Wayne, Father George Gabet FSSP — our former District Superior, and Father John Shannon, FSSP.

Congratulations to Father Eichman, and let us give thanks to God for him and our four other priests as our Lord said, “The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)
