On July 1, the Chaldean community gathered at Mother of God Cathedral in Southfield, Michigan, as Fr. Namir Narra was ordained to the priesthood.

A graduate of Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Father Narra was ordained through the laying on of hands and the invocation of the Holy Spirit by the Most Rev. Francis Y. Kalabat, Bishop of St. Thomas the Apostle Chaldean Catholic Diocese.

Father Narra will serve as parochial vicar at St. George Chaldean Catholic Church in Shelby Township, Michigan. Please keep him in your prayers as he begins his new journey as a priest!
