Grotto-goer to be ordained for Archdiocese of Detroit; will celebrate Solemn High on Pentecost for his First Mass!

Charles White IV is seen on the left side in this 2008 Corpus Christi procession at Assumption Grotto in Detroit.

This past Saturday, some men were ordained as transitional deacons, including John Dumas of Assumption Grotto. The Saturday before Pentecost, on May 30th, several transitional deacons will be ordained as priests for the Archdiocese of Detroit. The Michigan Catholic and AoD website often make announcements and profiles accordingly. As soon as they are available, I will bring them to you here. Please keep all of the new transitional deacons, and soon-to-be ordained priests for our Archdiocese in your prayers.
One of those men being ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Detroit is Grotto-goer Charles White IV. It will take place at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral by Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron on Saturday, May 30th. (See updated post with links to AoD, including profiles of all men being ordained, broadcast and live webcast info, etc.)

His first Mass as celebrant, will be in the Extraordinary Form - a Solemn High Mass on Pentecost Sunday, May 31st, 2009 at 9:30am, at Assumption Grotto Parish in Detroit, Michigan.

This is an opportunity to not only attend a Solemn High Mass and a "First Mass" in metro Detroit for Pentecost, but it will be an orchestra Mass conducted by Rev. Eduard Perrone (Mozart's Missa in C Major, KV 256 - aka, the "Credo Mass"). This orchestra Mass music will be repeated again for Corpus Christi at Noon on Sunday, June 14, 2009. Click the pic to see more.
The music program will also be used for Corpus Christi, on Sunday June 14th, 2009 at Noon. It will be a Mass in the Extraordinary Form. At this time, I am uncertain as to whether it will be a Solemn High Mass.

For more on Corpus Christi at Assumption Grotto, see these posts, and watch the short promotional video I made for 2008 with pics from previous years (prior to Extraordinary Form).
