The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith.

For this reason the family home is rightly called “the domestic church,”a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity. (CCC 1666)

After much prayer and discernment, and in light of the MI Safe Start Plan, our catechists being U of M students and limited space at St. Mary Student Parish we have decided to SUSPEND OUR FAMILY FAITH FORMATION SUNDAYS FOR 2020-2021.
