May 27, 1838 - Father Sorin ordained

From a young age, Edward Sorin knew he wanted to be a priest. After joining Father Basil Moreau with the Congregation of Holy Cross, Edward Sorin was ordained a priest today. Bishop Bouvier assigned Father Sorin to be an assistant pastor at a church in Parce. Father Sorin had envisioned being a missionary in China, but that dream would never come. After fifteen months as assistant pastor, Father Sorin knew he was called for something grander. It would be another year before Father Moreau would send Father Sorin from Sainte-Croix and Le Mans to the New World to aid Bishop de la Hailendière in Vincennes, IN.
