A Cup of Joe

28Nov 2022

Greetings in Christ, all!  With this weekend, we Catholics enter the season of Advent.  Advent is a lot of things for us and I think we all get the preparation to celebrate the Birthday of Christ. With that, we also want to remember that we are keeping it in our heart to prepare for the […]

Greetings in Christ! This week we celebrate the secular holiday of Thanksgiving. It’s my absolute favorite holiday. This is a great chance for us to focus on Gratitude. It’s an amazing thing how powerful and yet underrated gratitude is. Gratitude refocuses us; it heals our wounds and lifts our spirits. Scripture is pretty clear on the importance […]

Greetings in Christ! As I type this, I am processing the fact that Proposal 3 passed. My heart is broken. Clearly, we’ve decided that humans will decide when a life begins; not science, not reason. However discouraged or happy you are about this, let’s all remember that our hope is Jesus, not laws and rules. We can still love, […]

Greetings in Christ! Man, I got hit hard with a virus this last week. I missed you all very much. Today is Wednesday, November 2nd, and, as I type this I’m feeling much better. My doctor asked me to quarantine myself and so I have. If I do the math right, this is my last day of quarantine. […]

Greetings in Christ, all! I must begin by asking for your forgiveness. Last Sunday the priest assigned to the noon Mass did now show up.  Fr. Le was away and we found a priest who agreed to pray the Mass, but he made a mistake and messed up on his calendar. I was attending to other […]

Greetings in Christ, all! I’ve got lots of important information for you this week, so let’s get right after it. I need to run “sick calls” and Last Rites by you, so you know how to get ahold of us and the best way to do it. Every once in a while, I’ll hear someone tell me […]

Greetings in Christ! I’m happy to be back in the saddle. As I spoke of in my homily last week, it was such a joy to go on convocation this year. Bishop Vincke was our speaker and was amazing. I don’t know if you noticed, but we’re actually creeping up on All Souls and All Saints Day…holy […]

Greetings in Christ, all! This week Fr. Le and I will be attending the Diocese of Lansing Priest Convocation. While we are away our holy deacons will offer communion services each morning in place of the 8 am Masses. These services will be live streamed as we normally do. There will not be a Wednesday […]

Greetings in Christ, all! Before I forget, I want to help with a couple of questions I received about the Diocese efforts regarding Proposal 3. The most common question is about politics and the Church.  Aren’t we a nonprofit? What about Separation of Church and State? “Separation of Church and State” does not mean churches cannot […]

Greetings in Christ! As you can see, construction/creation of the reliquary and Divine Mercy area have begun. If everything goes well, it will be done in a few weeks. Please pray for our efforts! As a reminder, the area to the north of the altar will be a prayerful place for us to venerate first class relics […]
