Bishop Arturo Cepeda Visits Marian

The Most Reverend Arturo Cepeda, the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit, paid a special visit to Marian High School on October 25 that included an all-school mass.   Bishop Cepeda was given a special tour by students Alicia Avina ’23 (pictured right of the Bishop) and Mikaylee Leko ’26 (pictured left of the Bishop), who took him into classrooms where he spoke briefly with the students about his visit and spreading messages of positivity.
At the all-school mass, Bishop Cepeda encouraged all Marian students to smile at others and carry God’s grace. His special message to seniors during the mass was, “We will all miss you, but God says it’s time to move on.”  Following mass, he spoke privately to the Class of 2023 to deliver an extra poignant message. He encouraged the seniors to continue growing in their faith and to be silent, listen to God’s will and be open to his voice.  He also asked the seniors to think about their superpowers to demonstrate that God created each one of them to possess unique strengths to help others. He later took some time to meet with faculty and staff where they spoke about their connections to the Church.
Bishop Cepeda, a native of San Luis Potosí, Mexico, was ordained in San Antonio, TX in 1996 and has been a part of the Archdiocese of Detroit upon being appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit and Titular Bishop of Tagase in April 2011. He was subsequently ordained Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit in May of 2011.  Bishop Cepeda also serves as episcopal vicar and regional moderator for the Northwest Region of the archdiocese.
