Greetings in Christ, all! As many of you know by now, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday… the food, the cookies, the family gatherings, the cookies… and the time to focus on gratitude. As a priest of 23 years, I have come to believe that gratitude is one of the most important and neglected elements of […]

Greetings in Christ, all! This week we celebrate Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. I’m rather excited because this year my nephew and his wife are hosting it for the first time. They recently moved to Grand Blanc so Dad and I will head over there after Mass. Marius will be bouncing around with all the other dogs and I […]

Greetings in Christ! I’m writing this article way ahead of time, but when I finished last week’s article, I figured, why not keep going? Much like I do in my homilies sometimes…haha. So, last week I shared with you about where we are going with the Church building itself. Some of this is happening because at the Priest […]

Greetings in Christ all!

Greetings in Christ! Welcome to October…I love this month. I wanted to give you a little more information on the priest convocation from the diocese. Personally, I think the best part for me was the diocese inviting us to strip away all the “duties” of priesthood and look at who we are called to be. We looked […]
