'Mini-reunion' in Boston
Detroit Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron, who served as bishop of Oakland from 2003 to 2009, presided at the Rite of Candidacy at Pope St. John XXIII Seminary in Boston on Feb. 22. His visit offered the opportunity for a brief "mini-reunion" with Diocese of Oakland seminarians Deacon Jimmy Macalinao, left, and Mark Ruiz, right. Neither of the Oakland seminarians is a candidate this year.
