MOUNT ANGEL — Two Benedictine brothers were ordained to the priesthood Saturday, May 23, at Mount Angel Abbey.

Archbishop Alexander Sample celebrated the livestreamed Mass, which was concelebrated by Benedictine Abbot Jeremy Driscoll.

Brothers Ephrem Martinez and Timothy Kalange both have been teaching at Mount Angel Seminary. Their monastic community was founded in 1882 and was asked by the local archbishop to form seminarians.

Brother Ephrem is from Mexico and has been working with the Spanish-language Oblate community and the many Spanish-language friends of Mount Angel.
