Fr. Ron Serrao, parochial administrator for St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, Lac du Flambeau; St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, Mercer; and Our Lady Queen of Peace, Manitowish Waters, celebrated the 25th anniversary of his priestly ordination Oct. 15 in Lac du Flambeau.
The presiding celebrant was Bishop James P. Powers. During his homily, Bishop Powers reflected on the readings and asked all attending to reject sin, and through the sacrament of reconciliation, attend the feast of everlasting life.
Concelebrants were Fr. Ron and Fr. Norbert D’Mello. A choir from the cluster parishes provided music.
After the Mass, a dinner celebration was held at the Lake of the Torches Convention Center in Lac du Flambeau, and international recording and performance artist Tommy O performed. More than 300 people attended the Mass and dinner.
