Three to be ordained to priesthood in Detroit

Please pray for the three men who will be ordained to the priesthood in Detroit today. From the Michigan Catholic

DETROIT — Archbishop Allen Vigneron will ordain three new priests for the Archdiocese of Detroit at a 10 a.m. Mass on Saturday, May 26, at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

The three transitional deacons — the Rev. Messrs. Steven Mateja, Salvatore Palazzolo and Paul Snyder — all grew up in Metro Detroit and are all graduates of Sacred Heart Major Seminary.

Their post-ordination assignments will be announced at the Mass.

The three ordinandi responded to questions put to them by Michigan Catholic reporter Robert Delaney. Read their answers.

Go read more about each of the men at the Michigan Catholic.   I always look forward to reading about our new priests.  What they have to say gives me great hope for the future of the Catholic Church.   I have been impressed with every profile since I've been following.

I have gone to ordination Masses the last few years.  I really regret not being able to go today.  They will, however, be in my prayers.

Watch the ordinations live on U-Stream at 10 AM today [It does not look like it is streaming or on CTND live. I'll bet they just rebroadcast it at a later date, if it is being recorded. Probably one of the casualties of budget cuts]
