GUARDING OF THE TOMB

Hamtramck Firefighters once again performed the traditional duties at St. Florian Church by standing guard over the tomb of Jesus.  This custom originated in Poland and happens every Holy Saturday.  St. Florian is the patron saint of firefighters – we are proud to continue this in Hamtramck and we appreciate the invitation and hospitality of Fr. Frankowski, the staff and parishoners of St. Florian.

Standing guard today were Capt. Bill Dickens, Lt. Matt Wyszczelski, M/E John Dropchuk, M/E Michael Young, M/E Eric Stoddard, FF Nick Mancina, FF Andy Capo, FF Vinny Caporuscio, FF Marc Motyl, FF Chad Kersten, P/FF Jon Krajewski and Chief Dan Hagen.
