Our Shepherds – Our Future

The Our Shepherds – Our Future Capital Campaign will kick off in our parish May 1/2.  It will help us address the needs within our diocesan-wide faith family.  The objectives of this capital campaign are to endow and build up a restricted fund for seminarian education, as well as fully fund our priests’ retirement.  Thank you for your support of this worthwhile endeavor.

Please watch the video on this page – the thumbnail depicts Fr. Stephen Durkee who was in residence at St. Robert’s for a year!

Campaign Prayer

 Loving God, our needs are great and
we thirst for your presence.
Call from among us an abundance of men
to serve your Church as priests
In the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
Open their hearts to respond
with faith and courage.
Open our hearts to generously support their calling to become models of discipleship,
Heralds of truth,
and shepherds of your people.
Through Christ our Lord. 
Amen.
