Torres all attend St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park and were ordained to the transitional diaconate on Sept. 29 at St. Pius Parish in Redwood City by the Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone, Archbishop-designate of San Francisco. Colin Christopher Wen, enrolled at the Pontifical North American College in Vatican City State, was ordained in the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome, Italy on Oct. 4.
