Three men ordained diocesan priests

Three men were ordained diocesan priests during the June 3 priest ordination Mass at Rochester’s Sacred Heart Cathedral. Fathers Anthony Amato, Juan Benitez and Michael Merritt pledged their obedience to Bishop Salvatore R. Matano during the Mass, and congregants were invited to receive blessings from the new priests following their ordination.
