This past September 8, members of the Diocese of Pembroke were blessed to receive yet another member into the presbyterate as Father Michael Coyne was ordained to the priesthood at St. Francis Xavier Parish in Renfrew.
With family and friends of Father Coyne in attendance, Bishop Guy Desrochers, C.Ss.R. had the honour of presiding over his very first Ordination Mass on the feast of The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Also gathered were members of the clergy from throughout the Diocese of Pembroke.
“Do you love me, Michael (Coyne), Jesus says to you today,” said Bishop Desrochers during his Homily, reflecting upon the reading of John 21:15-17.
