"It is great to see this cathedral swelling with people in support of our three brothers," said Bp. David Zubik welcoming the overflow crowd to the ordination of Frs. Dave Duffeck, Quinn Mann and Walter Stumpf on Saturday, June 3.

The Rite of Ordination began when Fr. Tom Long, vocations director for the Diocese of Green Bay, testified to Bp. Zubik about the readiness of the candidates for the ministry of priesthood.
