THE PASTORíS DESK
By Fr. Terry Kerner
As mentioned last week,
this Monday, April 16th MDOT and Wayne County begins the
construction and repaving project on Rotunda Drive. The
irony is not lost on us that the date will see our income
taxes due also! Both can be a pain in the neck.
Nevertheless the completed work on Rotunda will be
appreciated for years to come. Donít let any
construction dissuade you from attending Mass. I am sure
the Lord will look kindly on your effort to join Him in
the Eucharist each weekend.
The completion date for
the entire project is early July but such projections are
always weather-dependent. After all the construction
workers and equipment have disappeared we will begin the
re-sealing and re-striping of our own parking lot. This is
good maintenance and necessary to fill the cracks that
occur over time in all parking areas. Everything should
look pretty good by the end of the summer.
You might want to get
out of town this Fall. The parish is sponsoring a weeklong
Canadian Autumn along the scenic St. Lawrence River with
two nights in Quebec city and Montreal each and a final
night at Niagara Falls. The dates are September 23-29,
2018. The trip includes lots of sight-seeing and a visit
to St. Kateri Tekakwithaís burial shrine in Montreal.
The trip is open to all parishioners, their families and
friends and members of other parishes. Brochures are being
printed and will be available in a week or two. For
questions and reservations you can contact the parish
office or Pat Ayland at 313-441-3355. It is important that
you make a reservation ASAP since this appears to be a
very popular tour and probably will fill up fast.
Have a great week and some seasonal
