Welcome, Archbishop Thaddeus Cho!
On Monday, May 20th, we were honored to welcome His Excellency, the Most Reverend Thaddeus Cho, Archbishop of Daegu, Republic of Korea. Archbishop Cho traveled to Cleveland with Father H.Paul Kim to attend the Ordination ceremonies at St. John Cathedral on Saturday, May 18 at which Augustine Dongseop Lee was ordained for the Archdiocese of Daegu. Every two years, the Archdiocese sends a seminarian to study at Saint Mary Seminary. Presently there are four ordained priests from Daegu who have studied at Saint Mary Seminary and two seminarians are currently in the program. Archbishop Cho met with the Saint Mary Seminary faculty and toured the campus and presented the seminary with a statue of St. Andrew Kim, the first priest and martyr of Korea.
Welcome, Archbishop Cho!
