Dear Parish Family,
The entire parish staff joined hundreds of priests and lay people involved in parish ministry in the Diocese of Lansing for the historic diocesan assembly convoked by Bishop Boyea. It was an exhilarating two days, filled with the Holy Spirit, that set the course for implementing the New Evangelization in the parishes of our diocese. This strategy for growing and bringing new life to our parishes of course involves you! There will be more to come.
One thing is clear, whatever your gifts and talents are, we need you! Please make your willingness to help known to us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone, and we can align your God-given gifts to the needs of the parish.
With this first Sunday of Advent, we come to the beginning of another year in the Church’s liturgical calendar. I look forward to entering into this, my first season of Advent together with you, as we journey together in preparation for coming of the Word made flesh more deeply into our lives.
Yours in Christ,
