Father Paul Lickteig, center, begins the celebration at the conclusion of his ordination Mass June 9 at St. Thomas More in St. Paul. He was ordained a Jesuit priest along with Father William Blazek, right. Archbishop John Nienstedt was the principal celebrant and performed the ordination. Father Lickteig, 37, is from Bloomington, and said his Mass of Thanksgiving June 10 at St. Edward in Bloomington. The last time a Jesuit priest ordination took place in this archdiocese was in 2003, when four men were ordained by Archbishop Harry Flynn. Dave Hrbacek / The Catholic Spirit
