Updated March 23: Archbishop Vigneron Letter for Holy Week and Liturgical Guidelines
"It is with great sadness that I have to announce to you that Holy Week celebrations will not be offered publicly this year in the Archdiocese of Detroit. To ensure we cooperate with and support the governor and local health officials during this time as well as assuring you of my continued commitment to the work of unleashing the Gospel, I am issuing these directives regarding the life of our parishes, the administration of the Sacraments and the celebration of Holy Week."
This is one of those hardest times of our Catholic faith and the archbishop is encouraging us to find time to pray as we ensure the health and safety of our community. Please let us continue praying for a breakthrough in getting a cure for this COVID-19 epidemic.
Yours in Christ,
Our priests are celebrating a Private Mass everyday to pray for our parish intentions. View the current bulletin online for a list of this week's intentions.
Mass is available each day via live-stream and other media channels. You can find these on link below:
As you temporarily participate at Mass in this different way, you and your families are encouraged to make a daily Spiritual Communion by praying:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
"I offer this song as a reflection during this time of us not being able to gather as a community to celebrate Holy Mass together. I encourage you all to let this song be a reflection piece for you as you make your Spiritual Communion each Saturday or Sunday. - Adam Morency (Sunday 9am Organist at the Church)" This Is Jesus

Dominican preacher and missionary crusader. A native of Bergamo, Italy, he joined the Dominicans in 1319 and soon distinguished himself as a brilliant preacher, attracting huge crowds throughout northern Italy.

When Pope Benedict XII (r. 1334-1342) learned of the pilgrimage, he feared Venturino might be planning to crown himself pope, and so forbade the friar to ...Read More
