36th Anniversary

Fr Peter


Our Pastor, Fr. Peter Enyan-Boadu, Celebrates 36 Years of the Holy Priesthood on July 15, 2020

On July 15, 1984, a man by the name of Peter Enyan-Boadu
was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in St. Peter’s Minor Basilica
in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa. His journey on the road to
becoming a priest, took him to many places around the
world opening him up to many rich and powerful experiences,
many of which he has shared with us over these past 8 years
as Pastor here at our beloved St. John the Evangelist Church.
Father’s journey, of course, continued after being ordained to
the Holy Priesthood and continues to this day, filled with the ups
and downs of life but always anchored in Christ Jesus
and the powerful intercession of our Blessed Mother. It’s with
heartfelt gratitude and appreciation that we celebrate
Father Peter on this joyous occasion of his 36th Anniversary
of Priesthood Ordination. Thank you, Fr. Peter, for your many
years of sacrifice and faithful service to the Church. You have
ministered to many over the years and across the miles
and your ministry has been and continues to be a blessing from God.
Thank you, Fr. Peter
We celebrate you!
