    A Few Words from Fr. Dariusz..



I would like to thank those who have donated to our CSA goal.  We are still short and those who have not given anything yet, I would like to encourage you to help us with reaching our goal.

I would like to thank those who attended our Family of Parishes Prayer Service and the reception that followed at St. Frances Cabrini Church in Allen Park.  Our next gathering will take place in the near future when all of the pastors will be installed Pastors of the Family by one of our Auxiliary Bishops at St. Alfred Church in Taylor (date and time to be determined by AOD).

Today's Readings from the Holy Bible echo the importance of the unity of God's people in the Spirit of the Lord.

In the First Reading we read that a man brought food for the first fruits to Elisha, the man of God.

United with God's people in the Spirit of the Lord, Elisha commanded that the food be given to the people.  Hearing this, the servant questioned how a hundred persons could be fed with so little food.  Trusting in the Lord God to provide, Elisha repeated his command, "Give it to the people and let them eat, for thus says the Lord, 'They shall eat and have some left.'"  consequently, the servant obeyed.

The words of the Lord, "They shall eat and have some left." were prophetic in nature.  Centuries before its time, these words foretold the miracles of the Lord Jesus who was to come and feed the hungry, physically and spiritually.  As a sign that the Lord God was pleased with His people, the first fruits were multiplied.  All were fed and there was some left over according to the word of the Lord.

In the Second Reading, St. Paul pleas for us to live a life worthy of the calling to which we have been called, in humility, in gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

St. Paul said, "there is one body and one Spirit, just as we were called to the one hope of our calling, one Lord, one faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all."

The Gospel of John reminds us of the multiplication of the food, how five barley loaves and two fish fed five thousand persons while leaving twelve baskets of leftovers.  While this may seem impossible, in the unity of the Spirit, it was achieved.  For, when the Lord God is pleased with His children, nothing is impossible.  He provides according to their needs.

During the Gospel Reading, we find out where the food came from.  A boy gave up his food for Jesus to share it with the others.  The disciples obeyed Jesus.  They told the people to sit down.  And those who obeyed and were seated, they were fed.  They also received the manifested grace of God through the physical multiplication of the food.

The Holy Scripture does not tell us about those who disobeyed and refused to be seated,  if they were fed or not.  What it does tell us is that those who were united in the Spirit, obeying the Lord, were fed and ate as much as they wanted.

This week, let us thank God for giving us the Life-Giving Bread, the Eucharist.

God bless you all, 

Fr. Dariusz 




Statement from Archbishop Vigneron

Regarding the Expiration of the General Dispensation

"Sunday Mass is an important part of the life of every Catholic. We have a grave obligation to attend Mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation unless we are prevented from doing so by a serious obstacle. During the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment of significant instability that required relaxing the dispensation from this serious obligation for all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Detroit.

For the past 10 months our parishes have learned how to safely and reverently celebrate Mass for anyone who was able to come. Now, as cases of COVID are dropping and the rate of vaccination is increasing, it is time for more of us to return to Mass. The obligation to attend Sunday Mass has returned for most Catholics this weekend. There are still particular dispensations for those who remain at a higher risk of infection or illness, so it may be a while for some of our brothers and sisters to return. 
As we welcome more people back to our churches, we want to keep in mind the need for all of us to be patient with and supportive of each other. As an act of charity toward others, it is important that we continue to maintain social distancing and wear face-coverings at indoor events – including Mass. Exceptions are made for small children but for adults, face coverings are required.

Pastors and parish staffs have been asked to help the faithful as they come back to Mass by reminding them of these directives, so that all will feel safe as they join us for Mass and receive the Holy Eucharist. 

We know that this can be a challenge for some people, but your cooperation and support is a great spiritual and practical help, opening the doors for more people to safely and reverently participate at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. To those of you returning today:

Welcome back and let us prepare ourselves for the Mass."

Before you receive ommunion, please  bow 6 feet away from the priest, say amen, remove your mask and the priest places the Eucharist in your hand (YOU CANNOT WEAR GLOVES WHEN RECEIVNG COMMUNION!)

As we continue to make progress against the COVID-19 virus in Southeast Michigan, the following Liturgical restrictions are being amended.  All of these below are at the pastor's discretion, using his best judgment about the needs of and situation at his parish:

1.  Those who are fully vaccinated may wear a face-covering and social distance but are no longer required to do so in churches.

2.  Those who have not been fully vaccinated are to continue wearing face-coverings and to practice social distancing to protect themselves and others in Churches.  Because a parish community - and our society - requires mutual trust and a commitment to the common good each individual is asked to make the best decisions for himself as well as for others.  Parishes do not have the responsibility to verify who is and who is not vaccinated.

3.  Each parish is to provide a portion of the Church - with a size to be determined by the pastor - where social distancing and face-covering are consistently maintained.  This section is for anyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

4.  All unvaccinated Catholics are encouraged to consult with their doctor about the vaccines.  Resources to assist Catholics in understanding the moral use of COVID vaccines can be found at

5.  The Sign of Peace may resume with the normal wording, "Offerte vobis pacem / Let us offer each other the sign of peace," allowing parishioners and families to make their own determinations about how widely to share some sign of peace.

Confessions are by Appointment Only.  You will need to stay in your car with your mask on to confess your sins.  Face to face option only.  Please call the office to schedule an appointment.

In the end, I hope this can help us to stay safe. There might be other changes taking place regarding our safety. I will try to adjust when I see where such changes are needed.  Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

God’s blessing to all of you.
Fr. Dariusz
