The newest priests of the Diocese of Southern Ohio: The Rev. Emmanuel Tuyishime, the Rev. Devin Rodgers and the Rev. Charles Graves IV.

On Saturday, June 2, Bishop Thomas E. Breidenthal ordained the Revs. Charles Cornelius Graves IV, James Devin Rodgers and Emmanuel Tuyishime to the Sacred Order of Priests during a celebration of the Eucharist at Christ Church Cathedral. The three new priests will continue on with their two-year residency placements: Graves is serving at Church of the Advent, Cincinnati; Rodgers is serving at St. Gregory of Nyssa in San Francisco; and Tuyishime is serving at St. George’s, Dayton.

The following week, on June 9, Bishop Breidenthal ordained Jason Daniel Oden to the Sacred Order of Deacons. As a transitional deacon, Oden will begin a two-year residency placement at St. Barnabas, Montgomery, and God willing, will be ordained to the priesthood in June 2019.
