Voice of Monsignor McEnhill – May 2nd

Catholic Services Appeal (CSA)

This is an announcement that we are preparing for the Catholic Services Appeal. CSA Sunday will be on the weekend of May 15 – 16. The Archdiocesan Central Offices will be providing the information and the mailing for this year’s appeal. In fact, many of you have already received the mailing that requests your support. And some have already responded. What a great start! Thank you.

In order to encourage you to donate, next weekend, Archbishop Vigneron’s CSA video tape will be presented at all the Masses along with a message from me on how our parish will use the extra money that we will receive once we go over our target.

One other note — you will see that when you make your donation that you are sending it to an address in Minnesota. Do not be alarmed. The Archdiocese of Detroit has hired a firm in Minnesota to process all the donations. This was done to eliminate the problem that happened last year when many of your checks were “hung up” and it took forever to go through the banking system.

As always I appreciate your support of the CSA and the good it does for the Archdiocese as well as for our parish. I am looking forward to another successful CSA.

Msgr. Gerald McEnhill

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.
