WELCOME BACK HOME!...

Our first weekend back went very well! Thanks to all who came back to in-person Sunday Mass! I totally understand if some of you are cautious because of the pandemic health concerns. As I sometimes say, “We’ll see you when we see you!” Thanks to Zora and Lori for coordinating my very first robocall as your pastor announcing the lifting of the Mass ban. There were 852 actual calls (done in three minutes!). 692 were answered, and 159 were unanswered. Speaking of phone calls, thanks to Zora and members of the ACWC who phoned members, and to Denise, Mary, Sue and Cindy from our Stephen Ministry for making welfare care calls to half of our homebound and elderly parishioners. This may be the birth of a new outreach ministry for our parish! As always, I again thank you for your patience, your faith, and your kindness to me and to each other!

“FAMILIES OF PARISHES”…

This is the next stage of discernment, planning, preparation and launching of our “Unleashing the Gospel” as we continue our missionary journey in the Archdiocese of Detroit. It will affect every parish, including ours. Last Sunday, on the fourth anniversary of Synod 16, Archbishop Vigneron sent a letter to us all, and announced a video introducing “Families of Parishes”, a second video narrating our missionary journey, a set of Frequently Asked Questions, and a link to a new “Family of Parishes” website. Please consult these resources to find out more information. I have received only the same information as you have received. More will come, I’m sure!

WELCOME TO OUR FAITH FAMILY…

At next Sunday’s 11:00 AM Mass, we will receive into our Church four new members through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Following the homily, we will celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation with our catechumens and candidate, and all will receive their First Holy Communion during the Communion Rite. This will extend the length of time at Mass a bit. Please plan ahead!


Fr. Nick Zukowski
