Joining Our Lady of Refuge
Parish Registration – Why Be Registered?
Are you registered at Our Lady of Refuge parish? Sometimes, people attend Mass at this parish for several years, but never officially register. Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to be part of a Catholic community and to make a commitment to the life of Our Lady of Refuge community.
Being a registered parishioner makes the process much easier when it is time for baptisms, Faith Formation registration, weddings, when asked to be a baptismal or Confirmation sponsor, and even funerals.
If you would like to register in the parish, please call Msgr. McEnhill, at (248) 682-0920. He will meet with you and give you a welcome packet to fill out, it only takes a few moments. We welcome you to our parish family!
Six Months Notice. By appointment. Contact the Parish Office at 248.682.0920.
Msgr. McEnhill also prefers to meet the couple personally in the sacristy following whichever of the weekend Masses they attend, to begin planning. Marriage preparation requires six months before the wedding, and a couple’s freedom to marry needs to be established before the date is set to avoid any difficult conflicts. For obvious reasons, it is best to make all those arrangements with Father before you reserve the hall.
2nd Sunday of the Month at 1:00 p.m. By appointment. Contact the Parish Office at 248.682.0920.
Baptisms occur on the second Sunday of the month at 1:00 p.m. by appointment. Please call the Parish Office well in advance to schedule your child’s Baptism with Msgr. McEnhill. Parents and God Parents will need to attend the preparation class, so please meet with Father as soon as possible to be on the schedule.
