On June 6 at St. Mary Cathedral, Bishop Boyea presided at the annual Mass for nine members of the laity who have completed all 12 classes in the Catholic Theological Studies Program through Siena Heights University and the Diocese of Lansing. These men have completed degrees or certificates in theology this year, which were presented at the reception afterward. As Bishop Boyea said, “God, send your Spirit upon them to help them be the agents of the fire of your love.”
