Pray for Christian Galvan, a seminarian for our diocese who spent his pastoral year at St. Catherine of Siena 2020-2021, as he will soon be ordained a transitional deacon! Christian will serve as a transitional deacon for one year before being ordained a priest by Bishop Gregory Parkes at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle in May 2023.

Christian will be ordained by Bishop David L. Toups (Bishop of Beaumont, TX), a priest originally from the Diocese of St. Petersburg and Clearwater area. Before being appointed as Bishop of Beaumont be Pope Francis, Bishop Toups served as the rector to Christian and countless seminarians at the St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary.
