Unbound – Freedom in Christ

Despite our best efforts, many of us struggle with the same sins time and again leaving us feeling hopeless in our search for freedom. Catholic author Neal Lozano knows this firsthand- and he’s laid out a strategy, based on his years of experience, for you to overcome Satan’s influence in your life. By focusing on Jesus’ work, instead of on the intimidating aspects of evil spirits, Neal Lozano’s will help you…

Bridging the Church and School Communities

Hi All,

I have spoken about this at Mass, but I am writing once more today about the school auction. The purpose of this article is really to speak on my desire to bridge the two communities of the church and school.

As I have said, and need, all of you to place on your hearts that these two communities are one. We are and always will be, under my watch, Our Lady of Refuge Parish. The “Parish” is made up of both the school and church communities. With the school auction happening in March, this is a perfect opportunity for the two communities to come together and show their solidarity.

The auction happens on March 24, 2023. This is a Friday evening and will be held at The Henry Ford Museum. I hope that when I arrive, I will see both members of the school and church community. This auction is for the kids in the school, helping them to have a better opportunity for a Catholic Education.

To find out more information about the auction and how to obtain tickets for the event, contact the school and they can give you that info.

Peace and God Bless
Fr Ron Richards

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Children ages 5 to 7 are invited to attend this program during our 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday. This runs from September through May on Sunday’s at the 11:30 am Mass. The purpose is to engage the child’s interest in Scripture and allow the children to better understand the importance of reverence and prayer during the Liturgy. Children’s Liturgy of the Word will follow the basic structure of the Liturgy of the Word during Mass. After gathering in the church at the start of Mass for the Introductory Rites, the children process out of the church. The children will gather together to hear the readings from the lectionary, sing the Psalm, hear a brief homily, and join together in the prayers of the faithful. They receive a sheet that goes home. The children return to the assembly to join in celebrating the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
