All three men are scheduled to be ordained to the priesthood at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 17 at Christ the King Church in Little Rock.

After years of schooling, thousands of hours of prayer and discernment and time spent experiencing firsthand the daily life of a parish, Deacons Juan Guido, Robert Cigainero and Rick Hobbs III are set to join the ranks of the ordained in Arkansas.

Each took time from working their list of remaining details leading to the May 17 ordination Mass at Christ the King Church in Little Rock to share with Arkansas Catholic a little of what they’ve learned and a lot of what they’re looking forward to in service to the Catholic faithful of Arkansas.
