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.

Ecclesiastical law is not confirmed unless received, Cardinal Brandmüller says of Pope's Latin Mass document (Inside the Vatican)
07/30/21 6:07 am
Contrasting “purely ecclesiastical laws” with “those based on divine or natural law,” Cardinal Walter Brandmüller has published a reflection on the Pope’s apostolic letter on the traditional Latin Mass. The German prelate, now 92, is the retired president of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences.
“Reference can also be made to the possibility provided for by customary law, according to which a justified objection against a law of the universal Church has, at least initially, a suspensive effect,” he writes. “This means, however, that the law need not be obeyed until the objection has been clarified. It should also be remembered that, if there is a doubt as to whether a law is binding, it is not binding.”Read More
