92-yr old Detroit priest keeps working

From the Detroit Free Press:

Msgr. Peter Lentine enjoys working so much that even after turning 92, he has no plans to retire from his job.

He has been a priest for six decades, spending the last 44 years as pastor of St. Philomena Parish onDetroit's east side.

"He's the cement behind this whole parish," said parishioner Richard Jungwirth, 76, of Grosse Pointe Farms.
