Covid Update: The Archdiocese of Detroit encourages Mass-goers, regardless of
vaccination status, to wear face-coverings
and to practice social distancing to reduce exposure to COVID-19. Each pastor has
been asked to evaluate their location in
the Archdiocese and implement 
the following protocols:

Establish an area where masking and
social distancing are observed.

Strongly encourage masking and
social distancing.

Evaluate space for the choir, and strongly recommend that those who are
unvaccinated do not participate in
the choir at this time.

Retain sanitization/face covering
surrounding the distribution of Holy Communion.

The faithful are reminded that particular dispensations from the obligation to participate in Holy Mass remain in effect
for people who are ill or who find
themselves in other specific circumstances. 

 More information is available at aod.org/emergencyresponse.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE… The Faith Formation Department of our parish is holding their annual Poinsettia sale in the parish lobby after all Masses this weekend (December 4 & 5). If they arrive on time, the Right to Life Committee will be selling Christmas Cards. Because of COVID, paper delivery and delivery of mailed packages is delayed. The flowers are yours for a $10 donation. Please support our Faith Formation program and, I hope, our Right to Life Committee.

A NEW APPROACH TO OUR TREE-TRIMMING SERVICE… The Holiday Giving Program for Christmas, which involves our annual Tree-Trimming service, looks different this year in order to increase participation by more parishioners, who give generously to the Holiday Giving Program. Instead of holding it on a Thursday evening, the ceremony this year is folded into NEXT SUNDAY (December 12) 11 AM Mass. This year, instead of asking for wrapped presents which need to be transported between the church and the parish center, we asked folks to donate gift cards or money for gift cards, which will be collected at the 11 AM Mass next week and brought up at the Offertory Procession of Gifts along with the Sunday Offering envelopes. Thank you for your “presence” at the Mass and for your “presents” for our needy brothers, sisters and families!

HONOR OUR COUNTRY’S PATRONESS, MARY, THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION… This Wednesday, December 8th, is the Solemn Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy Day of Obligation. Masses will be celebrated here at 9:30 AM and 7:00 PM. Because of the added solemnity of this Mass, there will be NO devotions before the 7 PM Mass, and NO Confessions after Mass. Please join us as we honor Mary, who because of her singular role as Mother of God and Mother of Jesus, was preserved from all stain of sin from the moment of her conception in the womb of her mother, St. Anne. 

MARK YOUR CALENDAR… With Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on a Saturday this year, please note that there will be NO Saturday 5 PM Mass on either of those days. Mass on Friday, December 24th will be at 5 PM and 10 PM (NO Morning Mass), and Mass on Saturday, Christmas Day will be at 8:30 and 11:00 AM. There will be only one Mass on New Year’s Day on Saturday at 9:30 AM for the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God, which is NOT a Holy Day of Obligation because it falls on a Saturday this year.
