Construction Update

-Green Oak Twp and Livingston County Road Commision have partenered to provide mprovements to Winans Lake Rd, from Rickett to Hamburg Rds.
The section east of Rickett will not be affected at this time, but in the future there will be construction at Rickett and Winans Lake Rd. 
-The construction manager has asked that everyone stay out of the construction area as we don't want anyone hurt nor any work that has been done altered.
--Due to the generosity of our parish through financial donations, pledges and prayers, we are very close to our financial goal.
-Our goal is to move into the new building in time for the Second Semester 2014-2015. Thank you.

Holy Spirit  Elementary School is under the patronage of our dear little saint, Philomena. You can read the story of how she came to enjoy this honored title at our church and school by clicking on "Articles" above. We could actually use more help than we can afford here at Holy Spirit. Would you consider making a contribution to our Capital Campaign? It would be greatly appreciated and would go to the cause of providing a good Catholic Education to our young people. Thank you.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

 

"Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen."

 ************************************************************************************

From the Pastor's Desk

We welcome Fr. Thomas Poisson from the Diocese of Marquette. He will be here to speak about Catholic Cross Outreach this weekend. We will also welcome Fr Rinaldo of the St Louis Center on Tuesday evening as he celebrates the 7:00pm Tuesday evening Mass. I'm off to Pennsylvania for a few days, but will be back in time for Friday's Feast of the Assumption of Mary.

May  I suggest that we return to praying our Memorares for the intentions of our new school. Let's fill that prayer tower a second time!
Fr John

For Sister Regina Mary  and all the young women discerning vocations
 
"O Holy Spirit,
Spirit of wisdom and divine love,
impart to young women Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel
that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God.
Give them courage and strength to follow God's holy will.

and lead them to the vineyards where they will labour in God's holy service.
Amen.

For John Vinton, and for all those young men in the seminary as they discern their call to the priesthood:
 
"Eternal God,
Bless your Church with holy and faithful priests, deacons and brothers. 
Form them in the likeness of your Son so that in him, with him and through him
they may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully,
always and everywhere. With Mary,  we ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. "
 
For our sons and daughters now serving in the military:
 
"Lord,
Hold our sons and daughters in your loving hands as they serve.
Protect them as they protect us.Bless them and their families,
for the selfless acts they perform each day for our country.
Grant us peace.

Monsignor Giovanni Braschi celebrated the

Feast of St Philomena with a procession of the Miraculous Statue of Philomena

through the streets of Mugnano del Cardinale.

"My dear members of the Family of Saint Philomena,

The grandest festivities for our Saint - the Sacrificial and Thanksgiving Walk to the Sanctuary for the battenti. These local pilgrims walk to the Sanctuary on their bare feet, and upon entering the Sanctuary they the crawl to the altar of our Saint without their feet or hands touching the church floor until they have kissed the sacred altar. This year we have a third squad. They presented some beautiful gifts of flowers and candles to our Saint.

The procession of the miraculous statue of Saint Philomena around the town of Mugnano del Cardinale was truly blessed with many spontaneous events. One could feel a very strong presence of Saint Philomena around the town today and within the church. I feel blessed to have been here to witness this annual devotion to our Dear Little Saint, Philomena."

Msgr. Braschi

The Sanctuary of Saint Philomena Needs Your Support

 
God has allowed the Sanctuary in Mugnano del Cardinale to be safe from rain storms once again. Saint Philomena’s devotees and others who love the Sanctuary sent almost enough money to repair the dome of this beautiful example of devotion to Our Lady. The Blessed Mother’s story is painted on the wooden ceiling and the statue of Our Lady of Grace is situated above the high altar.

For thousands of devotees this is such a very special church because within it rest the sacred remains of our Dear Little Saint, Philomena. Those fortunate enough to visit soon understand the strong spiritual presence held within.

Major repair to the dome has now been completed, but the contractors finished their expert work with only our word that the final payments would be forthcoming. So we must ask once again for help. With continuous restoration required in the Sanctuary along with the monthly outlay for general upkeep we don’t have enough to add this final amount. Donations came in from those who want Saint Philomena’s resting place to remain an eternal refuge. It is our mission to see that it remains just that.

We also must protect the many wonderful artifacts: the miraculous statue of Saint Philomena; the tiles from her tomb in the catacombs of Priscilla; Ven. Pauline Jaricot’s chair – where she sat as she was miraculously cured; the altar of Saint Philomena, which broke into two pieces and was miraculously joined together; the oil lamp which burns in front the sacred body of Saint Philomena and from which many miracles have been recorded. Please be generous and support the earthly home of Saint Philomena wherein rests her sacred body.

 Fr John has posted 4 videos of his trip to the Sanctuary of St Philomena in Mugnano, Italy. 

Please click "Article" on the toolbar above, "Fr John's Articles" and "Sanctuary of St Philomena Videos". They show you a small snippet of the much needed repairs. If you'd like to donate, please visit the shrine's website  through the link below and you will find that PayPal is the easiest way to do it there! Thank you and God bless!
