Father Allan Eilen finds his vocation
The first seeds of vocation were planted when he was a young child growing up in Delano, Minn., but the growing took more than 40 years for the Rev. Allan Eilen, newly ordained priest and soon to be associate pastor at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.
For more than 20 years, Eilen had a career in the courier system, eventually becoming manager of the courier system for HealthEast Care System. But on May 30, his ordination cemented what his life is all about.
