Meet Father Yost, SCJ

Fr. Charles Yost, SCJ, has compiled and edited the American Ordo for the past 50 years.

He assumed the exacting, detail-oriented responsibilities in 1964 when he was a professor and librarian at Sacred Heart Monastery. It has become a labor of love.

Ordained to the priesthood in 1958, Fr. Yost continued his education earning master's degrees in theology and library science from Catholic University in Washington, DC. Over the course of his career he served as a missionary in Indonesia, an academic, a fundraiser, a parish priest and superior of the Priests of the Sacred Heart retirement community.

Now retired himself, Fr. Yost continues to serve our religious congregation in various capacities, including overseeing the preparation of the American Ordo. Fr. Yost actually compiles information for the liturgical calendar about six years in advance and then updates the material periodically to reflect changes from Rome in order to keep the Ordo completely up to date.

We are deeply grateful for Fr. Yost's diligence and watchful eye. We look forward to his involvement with the American Ordo for years to come.
