CONGRATULATIONS FR. MARCO FRANCO!
Fr. Marco Franco was St. Michael’s Seminarian Intern in 2017. He is from Zapopan in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Fr. Marco was ordained with 7 others, for the Archdiocese of Chicago, on May 18, 2019 by Cardinal Blasé Cupich. He begins his first assignment, July 1, 2019, at Good Shepherd Parish in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood.
In 2017, Fr. Marco did his pastoral internship here at St. Michael Parish. His time with us was absolutely helpful in my process of discernment. The parish gave him several opportunities to learn about the pastoral activities in the context of an American parish. He really enjoyed his time here and met a lot of wonderful people who always supported him in his journey. He will be always grateful to this parish community.
Fr. Marco celebrated his first Mass on Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 2:30 PM at Good Shepherd Parish. He celebrated Mass with us at St. Michael Church on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM. Please keep him in your prayers as he begins his priestly ministry.
