JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF JESUS The best way of getting into the heart of someone you love is to get to know them intimately by learning everything you can about them. St. Augustine once said “understanding must precede love, for one cannot love what he does not understand.”

Our relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ is no different.

As a parish we are striving during the first year of our four-year parish vision and mission to KNOW, LOVE, AND SERVE Jesus.

Starting in April during the “Year of Jesus” at Ss. Cyril & Methodius, we invite you to join us once a month on Wednesday night at 6:30PM in the church as we take a 9-month journey as a parish into the Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

The events will be emceed by Bobby Hesley. Each month a speaker will teach on a topic that will increase your knowledge and devotion to Jesus.

Each of the topics are based on Jesus-centered devotions. These will be wonderful opportunities to learn more about Jesus and how you can increase your intimacy with Him through various Catholic devotions while having your Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament!

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed during each brief 30-40 minute talk followed by Benediction at 7:15PM. Questions, please contact the Parish Office, (586) 726-6911. Listen to all talks here

The monthly topics will be as follows

 

August 9: Holy Name of Jesus - Holy Face with Bobby Hesley

September 6: Scripture: How the Word of God Reveals the Incarnate Word

October 18: Encountering Christ in the Rosary

November 15: Jesus Christ the King - Jesus Christ, Priest & Victim

 

 

Christ in the Streets * July 22

Two Mile Eucharistic Process through Rochester, MI

Praise be to Jesus Christ! My name is Ace Tacderas and I am a Core Member of the iNVICTUS CHRISTUS Leadership Team. Our men have organized a Men’s Eucharistic Procession on Saturday, July 22, from St. Andrew Catholic Church through the heart of Rochester, MI. Dubbed “Christ in the Streets” this Eucharistic Procession is focused on two key needs within the world today: reparation and mercy. As men and Sons of the King, we seek to make reparation for not being our True Selves—uniquely created by God as men of action with hearts of Fire and Sacrifice and built to be prophets to the world (Jeremiah 1:5).

Truth be known, the pursuit of my own passions has led me to shirk my duties as spiritual leader in my home and community at large. For me, the iNVICTUS CHRISTUS Eucharistic Procession is an open declaration of my intent to fix my eyes squarely on Christ Jesus, unite myself to His Passion and put my hands to the labors of building His Kingdom.

Brothers in Christ, I have learned that to ignore the spiritual battle around us is to forfeit salvation for our communities, our families, and ourselves. I entreat all men to join “Christ in the Streets” on July 22nd as we follow Him in defiance of the powers of this dark world, and, with the Sword of the Spirit, win hearts for Christ the King—starting with our own.

And you, my Sisters in Christ, the Beloved Hearts of our Homes, we need your support as well. I implore you to pray for us. I also invite you to be on the streets of Rochester the day of the Procession. Be a visible witness to Christ’s Sovereignty by giving reverence to Him as the Monstrance passes then join the men at St. Andrew for Benediction and repose of the Blessed Sacrament.
