WELCOME, ACWC MEMBERS!...
My column last Sunday was dominated by the latest proposal for the State of Michigan November elections regarding pro-abortion rights. Because of that, I was unable to share the parish information I planned to share last week. First and foremost, HAPPY 45TH ANNIVERSARY to our parish Active Christian Women’s Club! They join us Sunday at the 11 AM Mass for their Corporate Communion. We had a delightful dinner last Sunday at the Gazebo. I went through some of the highlights of this organization which focuses on the spiritual, the social and service aspects of the Catholic life. The ACWC has been a powerful spiritual force in our parish. I am grateful for their generosity to us in so many ways.

WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY OF PARISHES…
Last Monday, over 100 parishioners, staff and clergy came together for our first Family of Parishes event. We heard an update on how the process is going, fielded some questions, and most importantly, got to introduce ourselves to the clergy, the parish staffs and the members of the four parishes that make up our Family of parishes. Thanks to all who attended.

NEED A LIFT?...
Welcome to Stacy Conte, the Outreach Coordinator at the central office of the Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers of Macomb County. She is speaking Sunday after my homily at all the Masses on behalf of the transportation needs of seniors and disabled adults. We are working with St. Michael Parish in providing this outreach primarily to our parishioners who need a ride to church, to doctor appointments or to the store. We need volunteers to coordinate the rides, and we need volunteers to drive. You get to pick the day, the time and level of involvement you wish to have.

O COME LET US ADORE HIM…
This Friday is the First Friday of October. During this time of Eucharistic Revival, how about coming by our church between 12 Noon and 3 PM to visit Jesus? You can read prayers, recite prayers or just plain “sit and visit” with our Eucharistic Lord. God still speaks to those who take time to listen!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU…
Our dear Office Manager, Administrative Assistant and beloved Parish Secretary, Lori Isaac, celebrates her birthday today. Lori will be out this month for hand surgery. Three staff members have offered to cover for her, but cannot work in the parish office on Tuesdays, so until further notice, the office will be closed on Tuesdays. The office is still open on Mondays from 9 AM to 2 PM, and on Fridays from 9 AM to 12 Noon. Happy Birthday, Lori, and may God bless you for the hundreds of things you do up front and behind the scenes, especially making me look good!

WITH CORN THAT’S AS HIGH AS AN ELEPHANT’S EYE… 
Have you noticed the CORN growing around the front of the church? This was not a plan for our summer landscaping. The neighborhood squirrels apparently have dropped corn seed in our planter areas, and some stalks have even sprung ears of corn! Here is another animal situation where, “I didn’t know they were Catholic!”
