CSA Explanation from the Parish Office
Whenever anyone wants to know where it is best to give to benefit the parish, or asks about giving to Christmas, or wants direction when giving an IRA or RMD, we would like to share this:
CSA is a bill the parish must pay!
1. If a donor gives $100 to offertory, then $7 is assessed by the Archdiocese and it raises next year's CSA target.
2. If a donor gives $100 to Christmas collection, $0 is assessed but it raises next year's CSA target
3. When a donor gives $100 to CSA, there is no assessment and no increase in next year's CSA.
4. In dioceses where there is no annual appeal, the assessment is typically well over 20%.

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
