DUBUQUE — On the morning following the ordination of two transitional deacons, five men were ordained priests for the Archdiocese of Dubuque at the Cathedral of St. Raphael May 25.

The storms from the night before had moved on and the sun began to shine shortly before the 10 a.m. Mass at which Fathers James Goerend, Thomas Heathershaw, Joshua Link, Michael McAndrew and Tyler Raymond were ordained to the priesthood. With Archbishop Michael Jackels still on the mend following a recent heart attack, Archbishop Emeritus Jerome Hanus, OSB, returned to the archdiocese to preside over the sacraments.
