FLINT – Bishop Joseph E. Strickland celebrated a Mass marking Msgr. John Flynn’s 65 years of priestly ministry June 5 at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Flint.

“It occurs to me that I just celebrated 32 years as a priest, not even half of what he has,” Bishop Strickland said in his homily. “He was ordained in 1952. Some of us weren’t even on the planet then!”

Those 65 years, the bishop said, have been spent in service to God and his people.

Bishop Strickland leads the congregation in St. Mary Magdalene Church in applause for Msgr. John Flynn during the Mass celebrating Msgr. Flynn’s 65th anniversary as a priest.
