Archdiocese of Detroit: Ordinations Saturday

There will be six ordinations tomorrow at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral by Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron - one will be for Cameroon, and the other five for the Archdiocese of Detroit, including one of our own. Assumption Grotto will welcome the new Fr. Charles White IV the following day - Pentecost - as he celebrates his first Mass at our parish. He will celebrate according to the 1962 Missal - a Solemn High Mass at 9:30am. This also happens to traditionally be an orchestra Mass at Assumption Grotto. Rev. Eduard Perrone, pastor, will conduct the choir and symphony. See details here: Grotto-goer to be ordained for Archdiocese of Detroit; will celebrate Solemn High on Pentecost for his First Mass!
