Dear Friends,

Today Catholics in the United States, as requested by our bishops, remember the still-disastrous judicial decision of Roe v. Wade. We are called to pray and do penance.  This day is properly called the “Day of Penance for Violations of Human Dignity committed through acts of Abortion & Euthanasia and a Day of Prayer for the Full Restoration of the Legal Guarantee to the Right to Life.”  Tonight we will have a Mass and Holy Hour for Life & Reparation at St. Mary’s Chapel Orchard Lake: 7:00 pm Mass, 8:00 pm Holy Hour. We pray for a culture of life, for conversion and for the healing of our nation’s wounds. No matter the setbacks, we must persevere to live, promote and witness to the Gospel of Life.

Epiphany Water is still readily available at St. Joseph Chapel & the Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (400 South Blvd. West, Pontiac, MI 48341) for a donation. It is basically the most powerful Holy Water the Catholic Church offers. 

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 & St. Joseph, pray for us!

In Jesus, Mary & Joseph,
