On August 10, 2016, at the end of their annual summer seminar with Archbishop Allen Vigneron, five men from the Archdiocese of Detroit presented themselves as candidates for the priesthood. Colin Fricke, Andrew Mabee, Timothy DuBois, David Pellican, and John Carlin had the Rite of Candidacy conferred upon them by Archbishop Vigneron at Manresa Retreat Center. This means that these men have been accepted as candidates for the priesthood and formally enter their theological studies. Please pray for them as they go forward!
