WARWICK — “Vocation starts in the family and this is where I come from. It is a gift that my family gave me in faith and in love,” said Nathan Ricci, during an informal interview Monday night around the patio table in the garden of his parents’ home. For Ricci, 25, who will be ordained to the priesthood this Saturday, June 25 in the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul in Providence, his formation has been a journey of great joy and peace — and he wouldn’t want it any other way. The priesthood, he says, is not just a gift for him, but for the Church and for his family.
