Transformers: The Last Knight
NEW YORK (CNS) — Grown-ups who yearn to connect with their inner 11-year-old boy are given a two-and-a-half-hour window of opportunity to do so in "Transformers: The Last Knight" (Paramount).

VENETA — Nearly 40 years after his priestly ordination, Father Michael Morrissey will be retiring from archdiocesan work at the end of June. He served as pastor at St. Catherine of Siena Parish here for the past decade.

Father Morrissey attended two high school seminaries operated by American Capuchins in Detroit and New York. He still recalls hearing stories about Father Casey from his high school German teacher, who used to live with the famous Detroit priest.
