The Disciple Maker Index Survey is Opens this Week! Please Read and Help!

It’s official! The Disciple Maker Index Survey opens this week and we need your help!

Please help us participate by completing a 10–15-minute survey as soon as possible.

Go to


  • There are also opportunities to complete the survey after daily and Sunday Mass and you can obtain a paper copy in the Doors of the Church or the Parish Office or by contacting Bonnie Danic at 313-532-4394 x201

The survey will only be available from March 18 through April 11 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible.  This information will be invaluable to Fr. Socorro and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be.  We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

Thank you for helping with this important project!

Happy Birthday on March 13, Fr. Socorro!

Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of Fr. Socorro.
Through him, we experience your presence in the sacraments.

Help him to be strong in his vocation.
Set his soul on fire with love for your people.

Grant Father the wisdom, understanding, and strength he needs to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Inspire him with the vision of your Kingdom.

Give him the words he needs to spread the Gospel.
Allow Fr. Socorro to experience joy in his ministry.

Help him to become instruments of your divine grace.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.
