From the Dominican Friars of the Central U.S. Province (St. Albert the Great): 

Four friars/deacons ordained to the priesthood today :
- Raphael Christianson, Vincent Davila, Samuel Hakeem, and James Peter Trares. 

There are a couple of pictures on the Facebook page, but they're very distant shots. If they post better ones later, I might post them here.

From the Congregation of Alexian Brothers: 

Join us in praying for the courageous men discerning their vocations with the Alexian Brothers, particularly those who are scheduled for a "Come and See Visit" during the following weeks. Special intentions for MARC as he moves to the Formation House at the end of May. May they all continue to find joy and inspiration in their vocation journey towards a life of love, dedication and service to God and to those who are marginated.

Springfield-Cape Girardeau ordained two priests this year:

-Joseph Stoverink on May 26 in Cape Girardeau, and

- Colby Elbert on June 2 in Joplin. 

Springfield-Cape Girardeau is a pretty far-flung diocese - 350 miles between Cape and Joplin. Stoverink and Elder were ordained on separate days, in their own hometowns, I guess so their families could attend without being unduly inconvenienced.
