Dear Friends,

This Wednesday, November 30 we will hold a “Holy Hour of Reparation” at St. Mary’s Shrine Chapel Orchard Lake (3535 Commerce Rd., West Bloomfield, MI 48324) with Mass at 7:00 pm followed by this Holy Hour at 7:45 pm.  Where there is grievous sin—such as the passage of Proposal 3—reparation is required.  The best reparation one can make is to attend Holy Mass and worthily receive Holy Communion.  This is in keeping with the observance of the Archdiocese. 

The first two weeks of Advent are a time of reparation (Nov. 27-Dec. 11) as Archbishop Vigneron has called for given the passage of Proposal 3.  He is calling us to prayer, penance, fasting, and almsgiving.  Historically, Advent has been known as a “little Lent”—so let’s offer these two weeks to appease divine Justice for sins against life.

The Novena to the Immaculate Conception will be made available on Wednesday—at the Noon Mass at St. Joseph Chapel and at the Holy Hour of Reparation.

First Friday & First Saturday fall this week.  Come grow closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus & the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and offer reparation to these most loving hearts who have given their all to us.

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.  All the Saints in Heaven, pray for us!    

In Jesus, Mary & Joseph,
