CDC Covid-19 announcement: 
In response to the new guidelines from the CDC & the State of Michigan, Bishop Hurley has removed some of the restrictions for church gatherings in our diocese. 
Masks are no longer required for most people.  Those not fully vaccinated should follow CDC guidelines for wearing a mask.   No one is to be asked about their vaccination status. 
Social distancing is no longer required but some space should be provided for those who want social distancing.    Some of our pews are still roped off and the parish hall and narthex provide abundant space.  Please reserve these areas for those who desire social distancing. 
The dispensation from Mass attendance will come to an end on the last weekend of May, except for those with significant health issues.      Thank you!

Every gift, regardless of the size, is vital to the success of the Appeal, so please be as generous as possible with your pledge!

Thank you for your generosity!

There has been confusion about where to send your pledge!

If you have sent your pledge to the Diocese, don't fret!

They are reporting those pledges to us!

If you haven't sent in your pledge yet,

please send it to us here at the Parish Office!

Either way - YOUR PLEDGE COUNTS!  Thank you!!
