I actually was pretty sure of this, as I once visited EWTN in Mobile (well, Ironwood).... I was able to meet Mother Angelica (this was just shortly before she had her stroke) before her broadcast.

A Myanmar seminarian immigrated to the US to complete his priestly studies (at St. Meinrad Benedictine abbey in Indiana). His specific goal was to minister to the Catholic Myanmar population of Kentucky. He was recently ordained. https://www.owensborotimes.com/news/2020/06/local-man-becomes-first-u-s-ordained-priest-from-myanmar/?fbclid=IwAR1gj06DwtsxNNECQEXqFAQVHN7P5xVuROwkjJ7VAfEKc-y7BuAc8A7Z6v4

The Diocese of La Crosse, WI ordained four men to the priesthood in June. Here's a link to the whole three-hour ordination ceremony. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, you still might want to look at the beginning, which shows the candidates, their home parishes, and so forth.

There's a new postulant at Holy Cross Trappist Abbey in Virginia. This is a very small community - they now have four men in formation (Alleluia!) which brings the community total to twelve. Prayers for perseverance would be appreciated, I'm sure.
