Father Jason Harris spoke to parishioners at St. John’s in Eminence Sunday morning. In two large plastic totes were all the cards and letters of encouragement he had received over the past six years as he pursued the priesthood. Harris had previously worked as a math and science teacher at Henry County Middle School.

Former Henry County Middle School math and science teacher Jason Harris was ordained as a priest of the Catholic Church this past weekend at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville. 

The celebration was the culmination of six years of study and service. The Local first wrote an article about Harris and his decision to change his career from teacher to priest one year ago.
