Fr. Dave Tomaszycki
Fr. Dave was born in Detroit, but originally hailed from St. Clair County, where he grew up for nine years outside of Marysville, and then 13 years outside of Marine City. Since 1990, his family have been parishioners at Immaculate Conception in Anchorville. He heard the Lord’s call at nine years old. At 22 years old he went down to Ave Maria University in Florida. During his first year at Ave Maria, he met the Lord, discovered His love, and fell in love with the idea of being a priest. Immediately after graduating from Ave Maria in 2010, Fr. Dave applied to seminary in the Archdiocese of Detroit and was accepted. On May 14, 2016, he was ordained a priest. His first assignment as a priest was at St. Linus in Dearborn Heights, for just the summer of 2016. He then returned to school for one more year of studies. In 2017, upon the completion of those studies, Fr. Dave was assigned to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Plymouth. In July of 2020, Fr. Dave was assigned to Our Lady of Sorrows.
Joe Sutherland lives in Carsonville, Michigan with his wife, Geralynn. They have nine children. Joe is a retired educator who worked in both Catholic and public schools. The Sutherlands attend St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Port Sanilac.
