Many positive comments about our building improvements

and new furniture have been heard before and during the

Open House. How providential that the Open House weekend

was the same weekend as “Nametag Sunday” and the Sunday

for the Corporate Communion of our Active Christian Women’s

Club. Folks even got the chance to purchase lottery raffle

tickets as we embark upon a new and I hope financially

successful fund-raiser. The Parish Finance Council is looking
for new and creative ways to increase our parish income. My deepest thanks to everyone who came, to everyone who set-up, and to everyone who served and cleaned up after the event!


You may have noticed that our Sunday collections continue to be below budget week after week. I am convinced that the main reason is because our attendance is down by 100 people every weekend at every Mass. I am further convinced that the main reason for this is the Hoover Road Construction Project. Folks are choosing to go elsewhere for Sunday Mass until the “Game of Cones” on Hoover is finished. A letter from the City Engineering Division states that the west half of Hoover Rd. and Masonic Blvd. will be closed for final grading and concrete paving work.


Beginning Sunday night, over 225 priests serving in the Archdiocese of Detroit will be traveling "up north" to Boyne Mountain Resort for our biennial (every two years) convocation. We will gather all week and be back in time for next weekend’s Masses. No Daily Mass this week.

There will be time for prayer and Mass (it is so powerful when you have over 200 priestly voices raised in song!); presentations from Joseph Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey (and a native son of the Archdiocese of Detroit); spiritual direction and preaching from Archbishop Michael Byrnes, Archbishop of Guam (also, a native son of the Archdiocese of Detroit); and time for relaxing and enjoying the company of my brother priests.
