On May 18, Bishop Gerald Barnes will ordain three men to the priesthood. It will be the culmination of nearly a decade of formation for Ted Drennan, Juan Carlos Lopez and Charles “Gino” Galley, who came from various backgrounds to pursue a vocation to the priesthood.
Galley, 32, began his vocation after converting to the Catholic faith on Easter Vigil in 2005 at St. John XXIII Parish in Rialto.
“Being a priest is something I never wanted to be,” admits Galley. “That was not the first thing on my list.”
