Masses continue to be livestreamed:
All other parish gatherings are suspended until further notice.
September 23- November 1

 The fall 40 Days for Life campaign begins Wednesday, Sept. 23, and runs thru Sunday, November 1. Prayer hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (ending at 7 p.m.)

Our simple presence can encourage mothers who believe they have no other option than abortion. In March of this year, a young man approached us while we were praying. He wanted us to know
that his girlfriend changed her mind about getting an abortion because she saw our signs. He acknowledged he had his faults, but he was committed to raising their child.

 We have a team that has been praying year-round at Northland Family Planning on Fridays from 1 - 2 p.m. We will have another team praying on Thursday mornings from 9 - 10 a.m. Most hours are still open. I encourage you to support the unborn and their parents in this life affirming way.

Northland Family Planning is located at 24450
Evergreen Road, just south of Northwestern.
Park at Tapestry Banquet Hall next door.

Public right-of-way outside Northland Family Planning abortion center 24450 Evergreen Road Southfield, Michigan Park in Tapestry Banquet Hall parking lot unless there is an event there. Otherwise park at southern edge of large parking lot north of Tapestry Banquet Hall.

Please text or call me when you are arriving on the site.  The site address will be emailed to only registered volunteers.
Please contact Jeanette Hughes for more information: 
A few reminders:
1. Please wear a mask, covering nose and mouth.  This is requested even when wearing a face shield; shields do not protect what might come from the mouth.  (This request is made by your fellow parishioners.)
2. Because of the numbers attending on Tuesdays, there will now be an usher seating you.
The long pews can take three individuals:  one at each end, one in the middle.
The long pews could also have two people at each end.
It helps us to come on time and not to avoid the middle of the pew! 
3. Please remember to social distance when you depart.   Thanks!
Saw a meme the other day:  "Lift up your masks!"  "We have lifted them up for the Lord!"
