May 1, 2017

May is just around the corner, and as always, it will be a busy month for the parish: First Communion, Mothers Day, and Confirmations, to name a few. May also brings our triennial provincial chapter meeting, a gathering of the friars in which we chart our lives and elect our leadership. Sometimes these meetings bring about unexpected changes into our lives as friars. We would appreciate your prayers in the days ahead.

The chapter will be held at St. Meinrad Archabbey in southwest Indiana, beginning on Monday, May 22 and concluding on Friday May 26. During the week Fr. George Berendt from the PIME Fathers will be celebrating masses and reconciliation.

At some point in the near future you will be receiving a communication from the Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services. It will contain a survey and an invitation. The survey seeks information on your end-of-life plans regarding your funeral and burial. The invitation is to an information session on June 24/25th, after the 4:30, 8 and 10 masses. I feel it is important to consider such matters well before circumstances make it urgent and rushed. Please consider attending one of the sessions.

Next Sunday is the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

Don't forget the informational forum on immigration on Sunday afternoon at 3:00pm at the Southfield Public Library.
