Dear Friends,

Tonight a Healing Service at St. Joseph Chapel in Pontiac (400 South Blvd. West, Pontiac, MI 48341) will be held.  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.  You can come as a substitute (proxy) for someone who cannot attend—with Jesus, THERE IS NO DISTANCE IN PRAYER. We will include PRAYING FOR PEACE IN THE HOLY LAND as Pope Francis has called all Catholic to pray and fast for today.

Tomorrow, October 28 we continue 20/20 Catechesis at St. Joseph Chapel.  It is at least 20 minutes straight from the Catechism of the Catholic Church (please bring a copy).  This time, we will meet AFTER MASS.  Catechesis leads to communion with Jesus who is the Truth. 

Next week is a busy and holy week as we enter November—the month of the Poor Souls:

  1. (Wed. Nov. 1) All Saints’ Day (Holy Day of Obligation) (Reception)
  2. (Thurs. Nov. 2) All Souls’ Day: WE ARE OPEN (Reception)
  3. (Fri. Nov. 3) First Friday
  4. (Sat. Nov. 4) First Saturday (Reception)

Even as many weaken in faith and abandon the Catholic Faith, we can miraculously grow in faith, especially with the Immaculata’s help.

To communicate with me, please email me directly at  [email protected] or call/text me at (313) 727-9784.  Our Lady of the Cape, pray for us!

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