Easter is God’s way of reminding us that life wins over death, and love triumphs over hate. Mary ran to tell the news to the disciples, and the disciples ran to see for themselves. In a sense, the church has been running on this good news ever since. The joy of Easter is the realization that Jesus has opened the way for us. Death, the greatest fear of human beings, has been overcome. HE IS RISEN!
May the Risen Lord fill your hearts with renewed hope and trust in his divine love and a new willingness on our part to be more loving, more caring, more patient and forgiving. AMEN
HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.
Fr. Linus & Fr. Greg

Resumption of Public Masses
Archbishop Vigneron announced that the general dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days will expire on Saturday, March 13, 2021. In its place, he is granting a number of particular dispensations for the faithful who may find themselves in specific circumstances.
Please read here for information about these specific dispensations and visit aod.org/comehometohope to learn more about how our parishes are working to keep everyone safe at Mass as well as tips and advice for inviting friends and family to attend Mass with you.
We encourage those who can to come and join your parish family in celebrating Mass on Sunday. Sunday Mass and keeping the Lord's Day holy, is still an obligation for all.
We ask you continue to use common sense, stay healthy and safe, and "repay the Lord for all of His goodness!

Families of Parishes
Led by the Spirit on Mission A Pastoral Note from Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron on Families of Parishes (November 22, 2020)
Sent on Mission is the next phase of our movement to Unleash the Gospel throughout southeast Michigan and beyond. It is the continuation of the work of the Holy Spirit to move us from maintenance to mission. It is our effort to realize the fruit of Synod 16 where the Holy Spirit spoke through the faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Over the next two years, all parishes of the Archdiocese of Detroit will join other parishes in new groupings called “families of parishes.” Families of parishes are groups of parishes, generally three to six, sharing resources to advance the mission, including having multiple priests and deacons serving the family of parishes. This new model will allow the priests, deacons, and lay staff associated with each parish to better share their gifts and talents with the whole family of parishes. This is a significant change of the way our parishes are currently structured, but a necessary step in our missionary transformation. Just like the early Church and the missionary activity of the early apostles, the transition to this new structure will require docility to the Holy Spirit, a spirit of collaboration and innovation, and confidence in God who continues to lead us in our mission to unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan.

Martin I lay too sick to fight on a couch in front of the altar when the soldiers burst into the Lateran basilica. He had come to the church when he heard the soldiers had landed. But the thought of kidnapping a sick pope from the house of God didn't stop the soldiers from grabbing him and hustling him down to their ship. Elected pope in 649, Martin I had gotten in trouble for refusing to condone silence in the face of wrong. At that time there existed a popular heresy that held that Christ ...Read More
