The Swedish-language Helsinki daily Hufvudstadsbladet interviewed the newly-ordained priest and you can read the interview by clicking here (but please note that Father Anders isn't actually the first Swedish-speaking Finn ordained a Catholic Priest since the Reformation, as the paper claims, as Father Wilfrid von Christierson, who was Parish Priest at St Henry's in the early 20th Century was a Swedish-speaking Finn).
