Something New in the Missal Pocket!!

Dear Parish Family,

Our Worship Commission is working hard to help deepen our spiritual experience at Mass. This weekend you will find an index of the prayers that we use throughout the Mass. The cards that were in the pockets have worn out and so we have replaced them with the pages numbers and prayers found in the missal. In the future we will utilize these pockets to bring information regarding the Mass, environment and tradition in hopes of making our prayer during Mass more meaningful and reverent.

Peace be with your spirit.

These talented and giving people have led us in prayer at the 9:30am Mass all year long, including special events in the parish as well. We thank them and want them to know we appreciate the gift of themselves that they have shared with all of us.

We invite you over the summer months to give serious consideration to joining the choir next year when we resume “singing joyfully in praise of God” at the 9:30am Liturgy next fall. Watch the bulletin for further information.

The Knights Have Arrived!

The Knights of Columbus have arrived at Our lady of Refuge permanently! Council 600, formerly a fixture in Keego Harbor across from the Dairy Queen, have sold their building and moved in to our parish office permanently! We are most delighted to have them become a larger presence in our parish!

Given the fact that they now reside in our Parish, they will certainly be more visible in their charitable works to our Parish Family. We are already beginning to make plans with them to work on events! The possibility of a “squires” (youth members) is in our future here as well!

They will be having their meetings on the third Tuesday of the month, starting at 7:30pm in the parish office on Erie Drive. If you are interested in joining this wonderful Catholic Organization, please call (248) 682-0920. Council 600 is looking forward to a long lasting relationship with our parish, and all of us here at OLR welcome them!
