Update 10 a.m. March 24, 2020
In the midst of the present crisis and uncertainty, we are called to trust in the Lord. We will pray for an end to the Coronavirus and pray for all those who are sick or have died. We look also to the Archbishop for guidance. The following directions are a hardship for us as a faith community, but are necessary steps to combat the virus. We will not be gathering as a faith community, but we can be united in personal prayer.
Under the direction of Archbishop Allen Vigneron, all parish activities including all Sunday and weekday public Masses, faith formation courses (RCIA and youth Religious Education), and all other parish ministries (homebound ministries) and activities are suspended in the Archdiocese of Detroit until Easter Monday, April 13. Please be assured that all scheduled Mass intentions will be fulfilled at the private Masses of our priests.
While services have been suspended, the Church building will be open for private prayer Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. so that you may approach Our Lord who is fully present in the Tabernacle. The Adoration Chapel will remain open 24 hours a day. Privately scheduled events will continue as necessary, including Baptisms and funeral Masses. Private confessions will be available from 2-4 p.m. on Saturdays and 5-6 p.m. on Tuesdays.
Should you need to visit the rectory office, please call before coming. The phones will be monitored and messages will be retrieved and returned as promptly as possible. In the case of an emergency, such as anointing of the sick or funeral preparations, please call the rectory and select the appropriate prompt. Your message will be given first priority and returned promptly.
Please read the following letter from the Archbishop Vigernon for further clarification.
May God grant us peace and perseverance at this time.
Fr. Bob McCabe, Pastor
