On October 13th after our Sunday duties, most of the priests of the Archdiocese of Detroit will be heading towards Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, Michigan to take part in the Convocation which will be from Sunday, October 13 through Thursday, October 17.
The theme for this Convocation will be Unleash the Gospel: Sent on Mission. Cardinal Joseph Tobin will be the main presenter and Archbishop Michael Byrnes will be the spiritual director for this year’s convocation.
Fr. Kishore and I will be attending the Convocation as well. There will be changes in the daily Mass schedule as I am not able to get help to fill in. There is no Mass at Val’s or OLL on Monday, October 14. On Tuesday, October 15, there is no Mass at St. Val’s but a Communion Service will be held at OLL at 8:30 a.m. followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with Benediction at 6.45 p.m. There will be Mass on Thursday, October 17 at St. Val’s School Chapel. Fr. John Wheeler will be the celebrant, but there is no Mass at OLL. On Friday, October 18 we will have Mass at both parishes, 8.30 a.m. at OLL and 8.15 a.m. an All School Mass at St. Val’s.
Thursday October 17 through Sunday October 20 all the Deacons will be attending the Convocation at the same place. Please remember to keep us in your prayers and be assured of our prayers for you.
