    • Hello my Beloved, I am finally back! Some of you noticed I was not here over the last four months. In February, I went to visit my family in Poland. I was supposed to be back on March 1st, but as all of you know what has happened around the world, so my flight was cancelled. Because of this I had almost four months vacation at home with my family. It was great to see all of them after three years of not being able to travel back home. My mom was happy not only because I came home, but also because of the virus everything was closed, so I had no opportunity to go anywhere, as I usually do when I am in Poland, traveling to another country or another place in Poland. So I spent all four month at home with mom. Anyway, I had a great time with my parents, my brother, sister-in-law and my nephews. While I was there I was praying for our parish and for every one of you every single day. I am so sorry that after such a long break I am not able to welcome you personally. Hopefully this difficult time is going to finish soon. This Friday, I have left my position at OLM and I am taking on the role of Spiritual Director at Saints Cyril and Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, MI. Please keep me in your prayers, as I will keep all of you in my prayers. Yours in Christ, Fr. Lukasz

  • phony emails and phone calls

    UPDATE 4/17/19:


    Someone with an affiliation with the parish (parishioner, staff, etc.) had their address book hacked.  The hackers are using the email addresses and, in some instances phone numbers, to impersonate Fr. Steve or  Msgr. Carroll and social engineer others in that address book.  Don’t respond to any of these solicitations.  To protect yourself, please change your email password as you could have been the  party compromised.    Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!

    Car Ad for Parish

    If you have not yet responded to the 2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, there is still time to do so since the 2019 Appeal funds ministries and programs through the end of the diocesan fiscal year on June 30, 2020.  Your gift is a great blessing and valued so we can serve Christ by serving his people.  For your convenience, you can make an online gift at www.2019appeal.org.


    Father of goodness and love; hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need.  Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence.  Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts.  We ask this through the lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen
