Janysek ordained as priest
Deacon Scott Janysek is among three deacons that Archbishop Gustavo Garc’a-Siller, MSpS, ordained into the Catholic priesthood May 17 for the Archdiocese of San Antonio. Joining Janysek are Deacon Servando Guerrero Ponce and Deacon Victor Valdez. These men received their priestly training from Assumption Seminary.
Janysek, a Panna Maria native, graduated from Karnes City High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from St. Mary’s University and completed his theological studies at Oblate School of Theology. He is a hunting and fishing enthusiast.
In a break with recent tradition, Archbishop Gustavo requested the ordination rite be held in the parishes of the archdiocese as a way of getting parish communities involved and furthering the vocational call to the priesthood and religious life. In the past, these ceremonies were held at San Fernando Cathedral.
This month, nine men from Assumption Seminary will be ordained to the priesthood -- three from San Antonio; two from the Diocese of Nashville; and one each for the Dioceses of Brownsville, Laredo, San Bernardino, Calif.; and Salt Lake City.
