June 8, 2019 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

Praise be to Jesus Christ, now and forever! 

At the first Pentecost, Christ came to His apostles and breathed onto them the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. 

He breathes on us today, his faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit. We find ourselves very much like the apostles who were gathered in a room. Like them, our hearts rejoice when we encounter Jesus. Like them, he sends us on a mission and gives us his Holy Spirit so that we may go out and Unleash the Gospel. God is pouring out his Spirit so we can continue the work of the apostles. The Spirit enables us to proclaim the Good News to those in our families, workplaces and communities. The Holy Spirit, our Advocate, gives us the courage to continue our missionary journey. 

And on this day, I would like to announce the next phase of our movement to Unleash the Gospel: the renewal of our parishes. For the Gospel to truly be unleashed, we must re-found our parishes so that everything we do — how we pray, how we minister, how we serve — leads us to be more effective witnesses to the Gospel. 

This next phase of our missionary journey will require prayer, innovation, and hard work so that our parish communities become what God made them to be: places where individuals and families encounter Jesus anew, grow as his disciples, and are equipped to be witnesses of the Risen Christ. 

To spark this transformation, each parish in the Archdiocese will create a plan to realign all its activity and ministry to our shared mission to Unleash the Gospel. These missionary strategic plans will provide the direction and focus for each parish’s missionary transformation. 

Today, ten parishes in the Archdiocese will begin the process of creating these plans. I am grateful for the apostolic courage of these first pastors and their parishes. Other parishes will follow early next year and more will continue after.

This is nothing short of a complete overhaul of our Church in Detroit — a task too great to do on our own. But we are not alone. Christ is with us. We cannot fail, because we are in communion with the risen Jesus and we act in the power of his Spirit. 

So, I ask you to join me in prayer. Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to come and transform our hearts and our parishes. Let us pray for boldness in our plans and efforts. Let us pray that each one of our parishes may discern how it is called to Unleash the Gospel with its unique set of gifts and circumstances. 

As a parish and individually at home, from now and until the feast of Christ the King, let us join in this Prayer for the Next Phase of Unleash the Gospel: 


Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the abundant graces of Synod 16:
for awakening in us the vision and resolve
to become again your Church on mission,
eagerly working together to “make disciples of all nations,”
according to our commission from the Lord Jesus.
Pour out upon us your Holy Spirit, as a new Pentecost,
to guide us in our next phase in our movement to Unleash the Gospel.
By his power at work in us, transform our parishes
into bands of joyful missionary disciples.
Come Holy Spirit:
Set our hearts on fire to share the Good News of Jesus with all those
who stumble in darkness, who hunger for hope, who thirst for eternal life.
Above all, grant us the boldness and courage of the apostles
to put the mission above all else,
so that our community becomes the spark
to ignite the fire of divine love that transforms this time and this place
into the Kingdom of Heaven.
We pray through the intercession of Our Lady, 
Star of the New Evangelization,
and her mother, our Patron, St. Anne;
and in the spirit of Blessed Solanus we thank you ahead of time
for “accomplishing in us far more than all we ask or imagine.”
We ask all of this in the all-powerful name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns forever.
Amen.


Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Allen H. Vigneron Archbishop of Detroit.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC…

is going to change at St. Martin de Porres Parish. Our Director
of Music Ministries, Mr. John Mc Govern, had decided to begin
a new chapter of his life – “semi-retirement.” John will be
with us full-time as usual until the end of the year, and
may be available to play at weekday and Funeral Masses after
that. The search is on now to find a new Director who will 
oversee all of our music ministry and play for the Masses on
​weekends and special holy days and holidays throughout the year. Please pray that we find a qualified liturgical musician to fit the bill. And thank you, John, for 28 years of dedicated and quality music ministry at St. Martin de Porres!


PRAY FOR LIFE…

Next Sunday is the Feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, also known as the Feast of Corpus Christi. We will have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament (the Most Holy Eucharist) next Sunday at the end of the 8:30 AM Mass, with silent Adoration until Benediction at 10:45 AM. We would like to dedicate that Holy Hour for the cause of Life. For the respect for all life, for the end of all abortions, and for the respect of religious freedom to live out our Right to Life as Christians. Please stay a little longer after the 8:30 AM Mass, or come a little early for the 11:00 AM Mass and join us in our Prayer for Life.
