I spent a day with Fr. Ronald Torres on the day he was ordained. Torres officially became a priest at the Cathedral of Blessed Sacrament in Sacramento. He then returned to Fairfield to lead mass at the church he grew up in, the church of Holy Spirit. There, Torres sat in the same seat he sat in as a child and individually blessed everyone after the mass, including a former co-worker at Walmart.
