GREEN BAY -- Loud and proud describes the near capacity assembly at the ordination Mass for Fr. Dan Schuster on Saturday, May 31, at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.

During the election of the candidate, as part of the rite of ordination, Fr. Tom Long, diocesan vocations director, testified to the readiness of then Deacon Schuster.
