Coming up: Transitional Diaconate Ordinations; Restless Heart Movie; Maximillian Kolbe Stage Production

In the Archdiocese of Detroit, this weekend, we will have 7 men ordained to the transitional diaconate - the last stage before priestly ordinations.  They must be in the transitional diaconate for at least 6 months before they can be ordained priests.

There is no public announcement that I can find on the website for the Archdiocese of Detroit, the Michigan Catholic, or Sacred Heart Major Seminary.  But, I believe this is invitation only due to space. There should be a report with details on the men after.

It is happening at Sacred Heart Major Seminary on Saturday.  Please pray for all of these men, and watch for a follow up post.

I have not yet heard about any priestly ordinations this year.  I hope we will see an announcement soon. In recent years, this happens the Saturday before Pentecost and their First Masses begin on Pentecost Sunday.  Archbishop Vigneron has sometimes broken with this, opening up the possibility for some men to be ordained after just 6 months. So, we will periodically see an individual ordination in the fall.  My Sacred Heart Major Seminary "elves" can keep me updated via combox or email TeDeumBlog (at) gmail (dot) com.

There is a movie, Restless Heart, out on the life of St. Augustine and it will be showing one time only, locally in Clinton Township this Sunday at 4:00 PM.  Tickets can only be purchased at the theater, the Star on Gratiot.

My understanding is that this will not be available on DVD for individual sales for about a year.  They do, however, have packages for large groupings. Click around the site or inquire there.

Here is a trailer:
