From The Michigan Catholic
by Gregg McIntosh

The Sacrament of holy orders will be conferred upon six men for the Archdiocese of Detroit and one man for the Archdiocese of Doula, Cameroon, Saturday at the Cathedral of the Blesses Sacrament, Detroit. From left, Deacon Benedict Bikoyogue Ehinack will be ordained to his native homeland in Africa, while Deacons Bernardo Cruz, Michael Zuelch, John Dumas, Adalberto Espinoza, Craig Giera and James Arwady will be ordained for the Archdiocese of Detroit
That intro comes from a lengthy article at The Michigan Catholic in which each of the men are profiled, indepth.  Read about their interesting backgrounds and journey to the priesthood, and their thoughts about the challenges facing the Church today. 

John Dumas is a parishioner of Assumption Grotto and he will celebrate his First Mass, in the extraordinary form, at the 9:30am Mass for Pentecost tomorrow.  This will be a Solemn High Mass.  The Haydn Paukenmesse will be featured by the Assumption Grotto Choir and Orchestra.

Last year, parishioner, Rev. Charles White IV celebrated his First Mass, also in the extraordinary form.  See the photostory of Fr. White's First Mass here.  Fr. White is currently assigned to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth, MI

Please pray for the 7 men who will be ordained in Detroit today by Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron.
