Christmas Choir Practice The Sunday 7:30AM Choir will begin practice for Christmas on November 15. We need men and women willing to give up one hour on Wednesday evening from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Choir practice takes place in the Activity Center (Chapel).

This year, in particular, we need to honor our Lord Jesus and ask for the grace to heal our Country. What better way to bring your gift of love to the Child Jesus than singing God's praises.

Please find it in your heart to make this a special Christmas by joining the 7:30 Choir. Mary Shiner

(NOTE: The practice on November 15 will end in time to attend the Parish Mission that begins at 7:00PM in the Church.

Investiture of the Miraculous Medal It was November 27, 1830, when our Blessed Mother appeared to St Catherine Labouré. She saw Our Lady standing on a globe with dazzling rays of light streaming from her fingers surrounded by the words: “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” This vision became the face of the Miraculous Medal. Then the reverse side of the medal appeared. Twelve stars encircled the oval-shaped apparition. In the center was a large “M” from which arose a cross. Beneath this were images of the Sacred Heart of Jesus crowned with thorns, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pierced with a sword. “Have a medal struck according to this model,” Our Lady said. “Those who wear it will received great graces, abundant graces will be given to those who wear it with confidence.”

If you are interested in the Investiture of the Miraculous Medal that will take place at Ss. Cyril & Methodius on Saturday, November 25, after the 4:00PM Holy Mass, please pick up a packet with the novena, Miraculous Medal on a blue ribbon and other information in the Parish Office (Monday—Friday, 10:00AM—5:30PM). The Private Novena starts nine days before the Investiture. Please leave your name and a contact number written/typed on a piece of paper at the Parish Office. We will form a prayer team whom we can call upon for prayers when the need arises.

For further information, please call:

Susan Schoenstein: (248) 495-6949 (cell) or (248) 652-2856 (home) or Gus Uytuico: (586) 215-6952 or (586) 268-3771

 

Total Consecration to Jesus thru Mary * December 8

Preparation Begins Sunday, November 5

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is quickly approaching. If this is the anniversary of your Total Consecration, or you are interested in becoming consecrated to Jesus through Mary, I invite you to begin your 33-day preparation on November 5, using St. Louis De Montfort’s Preparation for Total Consecration found in most Catholic book stores. It is a beautiful way to prepare for Christmas.

If you have any questions, would like to make your consecration, please call to register:

Jenni Hulway, (586) 453-4580

If you are renewing, you need not call.

The next opportunity for the Total Consecration is February 2, the Presentation of the Lord. The preparation will begin on December 31, a wonderful way to begin the New Year.
