New Orleans Province Ordination

The 10-state New Orleans Province of Jesuits is celebrating the ordination of an Oregon native. Rev. Mr. Anthony Wieck will be ordained June 5 by Archbishop Thomas Rodi of Mobile, Ala. Originally from Enterprise, Rev. Mr. Wieck entered the Society of Jesus in August 1999. Before taking vows, he graduated from the Jesuit University of San Francisco with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and a minor in mathematics. After teaching in Phoenix, for several years, he began theological studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He completed a master’s degree in pastoral studies at Aquinas Institute and was missioned to teach at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in Houston, Texas. He later completed a licentiate in sacred theology at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley, Calif. and went on to teach at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala. He will continue to serve at the college after his ordination.
