Our Lady of Refuge Parish Still Needs Your Support
I want to draw attention to how much our Sunday Offertory collection was down during the time we were not able to have Masses. I am grateful to those who have been making donations through online giving, mailing your envelope or now using the offertory basket when you attend Mass.
The pandemic has hit us hard as it has all our households. Our Lady of Refuge Parish still needs your support. We still need to pay our staff, maintain our buildings and continue our outreach ministries. If you are able, please consider make-up donations from March, April and May and continue to make your offertory donations. You can do this by either dropping them off or mailing them to the parish office or bringing them to church when you come for Mass.
The best way and what is becoming the more popular way to donate is via online giving. I suggest that you seriously consider it. You can easily sign up by going to our website, www.olorcc.org. If you have any difficulty signing up, call Dennis Haas, our business manager at the parish office, 248-682-0920.
Direction from Pews for Communion
The need to maintain the 6 foot social distance requires us to create one way aisles. You will notice colored tape on the carpet as you enter the Church. Green indicates the direction toward the altar to receive Communion. We can only serve two sections at a time. The two center sections are served first and will return to their pew flowing up the center aisle (orange tape). Then the Extraordinary Minister will move to the side tables to serve the side sections where they will now come forward on the green tape and after receiving Jesus return to their pew by following the outside aisles (pink tape). We will be exiting at the end of Mass from back to front again respecting the 6 foot distances. Thank you for your patience and care for each other’s safety.

Liturgy of the Word for Children
Children from ages 4-8 are invited to attend this program during our 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Masses on Sunday. They will be welcomed by trained facilitators that have all taken Protecting God’s Children and have a strong desire to unleash the Gospel with your children so that they too may encounter, grow and witness Jesus Christ. Each week our teachers come prepared with amazing lessons that they truly want to share with your little ones. They rejoin you during the offertory so that they will not miss the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
