September 5-6, 2015

Over the last several months we have offered an inquiry session once a month for people who are interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith. Beginning on Sunday, September 13, our Sunday RCIA program will begin. If you know of anyone who is ready to commit (or re-commit) themselves to the Lord within our Catholic faith, please urge them to begin attending these meetings. If you would like to become a sponsor for someone preparing to enter our faith, please let us know too. Sponsors experience a renewal of personal faith as they accompany another's journey.

Our daily Mass will take place at 9:00am Monday on Labor Day instead of 12:00 noon. Come join us as we mark the ending of summer and pray that God blesses the work we do. Later in the day, we friars will be in neighboring Berkley to attend a short ceremony of welcoming two postulants into their first year of Franciscan formation.

Looking ahead: The biennial clergy convocation occurs the week after next, September 13 to 17. I will be joining the priests of the archdiocese for four days of workshops and fraternal community at Boyne Highlands. Then, on September 20th I will be leading a pilgrimage for high school students in Assisi and Rome, returning on October 1. Thanks in advance to Fr. Jeremy for picking up the extra work while I am gone!
