Dear Friends,

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is coming tonight from Washington, D.C. to film the Holy Hour for Life at St. Mary’s Shrine Chapel Orchard Lake (3535 Commerce Rd., West Bloomfield, MI 48324).  Mass is at 7:00 pm (commemorating St. Faustina today) followed by the 7:45 pm Holy Hour to defeat Proposal 3.  PLEASE INVITE PEOPLE to unleash Divine Mercy upon Michigan!

Prayer Rally to Defeat Proposal 3 will be held on Saturday, October 15, Noon-3:00 pm on the steps of the state capital in Lansing.  PLEASE COME to pray and witness to life with pro-life-minded people from all over Michigan.  (The Archdiocese of Detroit and the Diocese of Lansing have endorsed this.)  Please invite others.

The October 15 schedule for St. Joseph Chapel will thus be 8:00 am Mass immediately followed by our Rosary Rally.
