New pastoral letter from our Archbishop,
Most Reverend Allen H. Vigneron,
The Beauty of Truth
"The world today is flooded with words, yet we thirst for truth."
Masking while at Mass: As you are probably aware, the governor has relaxed the rules about face coverings. Those rules now allow fully vaccinated persons to forego wearing masks indoors.
However, to respect those persons who feel more comfortable maintaining masking and social distancing when coming to Mass—and in compliance with the latest liturgical directives from the Archdiocese—I’ve designated the entire north half of our church nave (the side with the Stations) especially for them.The rest of the church, the Vercelli Room, and the Activity Center all provide sufficient space to allow people to sit as they wish: distanced or not, with face coverings or not.
Also, for the sake of persons who might have concerns, the clergy and the Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will continue to wear masks while distributing Holy Communion.
May God bless you, and keep you safe!

Families of Parishes
The Archdiocese is launching a new initiative called "Families of Parishes", and is the next stop in our efforts to Unleash the Gospel. Because all parishes are going to be involved,
it has the potential for creating significant changes in how parishes operate and interact.
For a series of articles about Families of Parishes, written by Fr. Michael in August, 2020,
I hope that by browsing this site you will begin to appreciate the dynamism
of our parish community!
It’s always a challenge to keep our Website updated, because our parish continues to
evolve. We have many, many active organizations, and I suspect that there's
something here for everybody, whether you have a special interest in school, religious
education, youth, adult education, Christian Service opportunities and outreach, or
social activities. First and foremost, of course, is prayer and worship.
The parish is located in the heart of Walled Lake, near Pontiac Trail and Maple (15 Mile). Our parish boundaries incorporate approximately 45 square miles, including all of Walled Lake and Wixom-and parts of West Bloomfield, Commerce, and Novi. The parish is comprised of some 1900 registered families.
New members consistently report how welcomed they feel as they join our community. Contact the parish office for registration information. The office phone number is (248) 624-1421. Periodically there are opportunities to register new parishioners after Mass.
God bless you!
Rev. Michael G. Savickas Pastor
