You’re Invited….we’re getting ready for you!

Grab your family and friends, even a stranger, and join us for this blessed celebration of the Birth of Christ.  For 171 years families have made the pilgrimage to downtown Detroit to worship in this space where their ancestors worshiped.  Generations later the children of those families bring their children to continue this tradition. Christmas Eve Mass will begin with a musical prelude at 4:30pm.  Come early and join in the singing!  This year we have a special way to include elementary aged children in the Mass too.  Christmas Day Mass will begin at 12 Noon. Haven't been here before?  Our church is at the corner of St. Antoine and East Jefferson, right next door to the UDM Law School.  Parking is easy, [...]

It’s HERE! LEGACY-Winter 2018

Dive into our latest issue of Legacy! The Liturgy is central to all that we are and this issue provides an inside look at the wonder and awe that is evident each time we gather together to worship.  Each article is written from the perspective of a Liturgical Minister, even those in the pews.  After all the liturgy is not complete without the participation of everyone!  Enjoy this wonderful introspective point of view.

Advent Giving Tree

Beginning the weekend of November 18th our parish Advent Giving Tree will be present in the church.  We ask you to support this program.  This year, we will support the Pope Francis Center with donations of hand warmers and socks.  These vital necessities are so important for surviving in the cold winter weather. No need to take a tag or wrap your gift.  Please place all donations in the collection box next to the tree.  Thank you for your generosity.
