Adults Seeking Sacraments
The new year is going to have a few changes.  In order to be more convenient for participants and sponsors, we’ll be moving our formation sessions for the Rite of Christian of Adults to Sunday mornings!  We’ll gather and listen to the Liturgy of the Word at the 9AM Mass, and then we’ll be dismissed to continue conversation about the scripture readings, and their application for our lives.  We’ll, then, take a brief break, and follow up with a brief session with content that explains our sacraments, traditions, and other information about the Church that participants will find helpful.  We’ll wrap up just before the 11:00 Mass.  If you are an adult who is interested in becoming a fully initiated member of the Catholic Church by celebrating sacraments with is, please consider joining us beginning August 21, 2016, and following.  As always, if you have any questions, please call me at 248-243-0251 or email me Peggy Casing

Protecting God’s Children Workshop
St. Mary of the Hills will be hosting a Protecting God’s Children workshop on September 28, 2016.  A light meal will begin at 6:15, and the workshop, itself, will start at 6:45.  Registration is handled through the “Safe Environments” link on the AOD website.
