WITNESS THE GOSPEL By Pat Urban

In Archbishop Vigneron’s recent Pastoral Letter, “Unleash the Gospel,” he stated, “Effective witness to Jesus has these attractive qualities: joy hospitality and generous service to the poor and the marginalized.” 

Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan, Sacred Heart Seminary and the Archdiocese of Detroit are encouraging Catholics to put their faith into action by participating in a six day volunteer project from July 31st to August 5th. The event is being organized by Life Remodeled, a Detroit based non-profit that invests cash, labor and materials into a designated neighborhood each year. This year the group will focus on the neighborhood surrounding Sacred Heart Seminary, St. Charles Lwanga Parish and St. Moses the Black.

Twelve thousand volunteers are being recruited to remove blight, mow grass, provide home repairs, board up vacant houses and transform a former DPS school building into a community center. If you are interest in participating in this meaningful opportunity to witness the gospel in a very concrete way, go to the Archdiocesan website: www.aod.org for more information. If enough parishioners are interested, we can arrange for a group to carpool and work together for a day. Call the parish office at 313.336-3227.

AUTUMN GETAWAY—DEADLINE EXTENDED since there has been renewed interest in this trip recently. We will visit the St. Kateri and Our Lady of Martyrs Shrines, West Point, FDR’s Hyde Park, Culinary Institute of American, Baseball Hall of Fame and more. So, if you are interested in history, food, sports, religious sites, or traveling with a great group of people, this is the trip for you. Please call the church office or Pat Ayland at 313.441.3355 for more information.
