Archbishop Vigneron emphasizes shared journey, graces during 25th anniversary Mass – Detroit Catholic: Read Catholic News & Stories

DETROIT — Celebrating the 25th anniversary of his ordination to the episcopate, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron said the blessings God has bestowed on him are shared among the faithful and are a cause for shared thanksgiving.  Standing before an intimate group of friends, family, fellow priests and coworkers in Christ on July 11 at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Archbishop Vigneron gave thanks for the occasion as he reflected on the graces he’s shared with Detroit’s faithful.  “It is very much with that in mind that I think about all of you today, about the diversity of bonds that hold us together,” the archbishop said, “about how what this is really about is our salvation being linked, yours and mine together. As Pope Francis would put it, ‘We are accompanying each other on the way home to the new Jerusalem.’” Archbishop Vigneron celebrated his episcopal anniversary on July 9, a quarter-century to the day he was ordained an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Detroit in 1996.
