Bishop Robert McElroy will ordain Bradley D. Easterbrooks and Guillermo Hernandez to the priesthood June 24 at St. Gabriel Church in Poway.
As students at the Pontifical North American College, the American seminary in Rome, the men were ordained to the transitional diaconate last September at St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.
Deacon Easterbrooks, 37, will be assigned to Holy Trinity Parish in El Cajon this summer and then will return to Rome for another year to earn an advanced degree in Dogmatic Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University.
Deacon Hernandez, 30, will serve as associate pastor of St. Jude Shrine of the West Parish for the summer, before finishing a licentiate in Fundamental Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University for the next year.
