BREAKING NEWS:

October 2020:  Bishop Walkowiak has extended the dispensation through November 23 for those not able to attend Mass.  “The dispensation is granted broadly to ensure that anyone who needs to stay home to protect the common good can do so confidently, in good conscience. But those who are truly able to attend Mass should begin to return, remembering that we are transformed by being joined to Christ in the Eucharist.”

 PER INSTRUCTION FROM THE DIOCESE OF GRAND RAPIDS:
