Dear Friends,

Thank You for all who made our 100th Anniversary of St. Joseph’s in Pontiac (400 South Blvd. West, Pontiac, MI 48341) possible, and all who joined us. We were blessed by all of you, your efforts, and the Archbishop’s presence and words. 

Saturday, October 21 we continue 20/20 Catechesis at St. Joseph Chapel. It is 20 minutes straight from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (please bring a copy). We meet in the lower level immediately after praying the Rosary following Mass. Our next class will be Saturday, October 28.

This Monday, October 23, at Transfiguration Parish in Southfield (25225 Code. Rd., Southfield, MI 48033) there will be a Holy Hour (7:00 pm) and Mass for the Unborn (8:00 pm). I will preside at both. Mass will follow with a reception and an opportunity to help pro-life efforts, especially the fully Catholic Mother and Unborn Baby Care (MAUBC). (To support MAUBC, contact Nancy Peterson, Executive Director, at 248-559-7576 or visit www.maube.org.) PLEASE COME!

Next Friday, October 27, at St. Joseph Chapel, we will have our last Healing Service for the year. Doors open at 6:30 pm with Exposition and Confession available, then a Holy Hour (not Mass) at 7:00 pm followed by Healing Prayer Teams at 8:00 pm. Fr. Alex will be available for advice, priestly blessings, and personal prayer.

To communicate with me, please DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL but email me directly  at  [email protected] or call/text me at (313) 727-9784.  Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

In Jesus, Mary & Joseph,
Fr. Alex Kratz, OFM
