Cyril & Methodius on Saturday, April 12. The day will begin with the Holy Rosary at 8:00AM, Holy Mass at 9:00AM, followed by a talk by Matthew. Free-will offering.

Matthew will share his amazing conversion story and speaking on the approved apparition of Our Lady of Good Success. Matthew has been entrusted with a sacred mission: to spread the messages of Our Lady of Good Success. A former Hollywood entertainer, Matthew’s spiritual beliefs ran the gamut from New Age to Agnosticism. His is a surprising and inspiring story of how he discovered Christ and his Church along with this beautiful devotion to Our Lady.

Blood Drive  Monday, April 14

Our next Blood Drive is on Monday during Holy Week, April 14, (the same day as our ―Big Confession Day‖). Thank you to everyone who has signed up. If you have not yet signed up, please sign up today. Without the proper amount of blood on-hand, patients (perhaps even our family members or friends) may not have blood available for necessary operations or emergencies. If you are planning to donate blood on April 14, please begin to prepare now by eating foods that are rich in iron as follows: *Red meat *Fish, poultry or liver *Beans *Iron-fortified cereals *Raisins or prunes *Dark leafy greens such as spinach. If you eat iron-rich foods along with those that provide plenty of Vitamin C, your body can absorb the iron better. During Lent when many people fast, it is especially possible to become deficient in iron and low iron is one of the main reason people are deferred from donation blood. Therefore, please follow the steps outlined above.

Additional simple steps to help ensure a successful donation include: *Getting a good night’s sleep *Eating a good breakfast or lunch *Avoiding tea, coffee or other caffeinated beverages *Drinking extra water and fluids a few hours before donating. God bless you for your consideration in donating blood. Questions, please contact: Sandi Brady, 586-726-6911 or Alice Tocco, 586-752-7282

VBS Weekly  Tuesday, April 15 , 92 days until our next VBS with Cat Chat, but who is counting. I guess, Ms. Moe is. I am so excited about this summer's program. I won't tell you all the cool things the children will get to experience, but I will tell you a few each week in the bulletin.

First, we get to study two of my favorite saints. One has to do with the Divine Mercy Jesus and the other is very closely connected to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Can you guess whom I am talking about?

The theme of this year’s VBS is "A Radical Ride on the Wings of Prayer". Mrs. Lisa and I are going to let you guys design the T-Shirt. Isn't that AWESOME? Be sure to keep your eye on the VBS Weekly News Article, or take a peek at the VBS Corner, for details on the AWESOME T-Shirt designing contest. Details will be posted in the next week or two.

The next VBS Planning Meeting is Tuesday, April 15, at 7:00PM in the Overflow Room. This is a mandatory meeting for all volunteers. Volunteers must be young at heart, but at least entering 8th grade CCD this coming fall. See you soon!

In Christ, Ms. Moe (586) 219-6678

Holy Land Presentation by Fr. Libor  April 15 & 16 With the approaching solemnity of Easter, I would like to invite you to personally prepare for the celebrations. The events of Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection have spiritual meaning for our personal lives, but they are also a part of a specific historical and geographical context. Knowing this context helps to imagine the events and more fully appreciate their impact on our lives.

I will make a presentation on the last days of Jesus in Jerusalem with pictures and explanations. This presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 15, at 7:00PM and Wednesday, April 16, at 10:00AM in the South Hall. Everybody is invited.

I have a significant update on the pictures versus what I showed in past years. I look forward to sharing them with you. Fr. Libor

Information Night for Total Consecration to Jesus thru Mary What do Popes Pius IX, Leo XIII, St. Pius X, Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII, Paul VI, John Paul II, Fr. Ben, and Fr. Luigi have in common?

Their Total Consecration according to St. Louis de Montfort. This Saint from the 18th Century was the one to whom the task was given to explain thoroughly the path "to Jesus through Mary" and to shape that path into a definite method of spiritual life. This devotion embraces one’s entire life, not just one’s prayer times or specific religious acts. St. Louis realized that Mary is the pathway to her Son, leading souls quickly and securely to Jesus Christ, the Eternal Wisdom. This does not conflict or compete with any other devotion or consecration; it perfects them.

Come and find out how on Thursday, April 24, after the 7:00PM Holy Mass. We will have information along with Q&A in Room 114. Questions: Jenni Hulway, (586) 453-4580
