It was an immense privilege that The Most Reverend Luc Crepy, CJM Bishop of the Diocese of Put-En-Velay, France flew all the way to be the Principal Celebrant!

Father Eleuterio is a member of the Eudist Order.The Eudists, also known as the Congregation of Jesus and Mary, was founded in Caen, France in 1643 by St. John Eudes at a time when he recognized the pressing need to make a contribution to reform the clergy. St. John Eudes opened seminaries with a few other priests when very few existed in France, and for the past 362 years, the Congregation remains true to its founding principle of evangelization and the formation of priests and lay ministers.
