He then attended St. Mary’s Prep and St. Mary’s College before moving on to St. John’s Provincial Seminary to finish his priestly formation. He was ordained for the Archdiocese of Detroit on June 4, 1955, but later went back to earn a master’s degree from SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary, and a doctorate from Alliance College in Cambridge Springs, Pa. His first assignment was as associate pastor of St. Francis D’Assisi in Detroit (1955-57) before quickly becoming a Polish, religion and history teacher at Orchard Lake.
