2018 Lenten Highlights

March 25, 2018 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle

Great job Team OLA at the Shamrock Shuffle! Everyone on the team did awesome + we have raised over $20,000! Donate to their effort HERE.

Spring break groups wrap up!

We had 4 weeks of groups visit us from colleges across the country including Carroll College (Helena, MT), Ferris State University (Big Rapids, MI), UW Oshkosh (Oshkosh, WI), and a group of students from various schools through FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students). We are very grateful for all of their help as we unloaded trucks, prepped for renovations, organized donations, worked at the food pantry, helped at the afterschool program, taught religion and math at St. Sylvester’s school, and much more! This picture is the group from UW Oshkosh.

Fr. Bob Lenten Missions

Fr. Bob is preaching a parish mission every week this Lent! A parish mission is a mini retreat for a parish, usually 1 hour per evening for 3 evenings in a row. Join him for an upcoming mission! See the calendar on the calendar page HERE.
February 19- 23, 2018 Eastern Michigan University Group
We were blessed to host a spring break group from Eastern Michigan University this past week! We worked on prepping the school for construction, organizing the food pantry, and they joined Sr. Stephanie at school to help kids get ready to go to confession. It was a great week!
