March 23, 2020 Note from Fr. Brendan McCarrick, S.A.C., Parish Administrator

Dear members of St. Vincent Pallotti Parish,

We are entering uncharted waters with Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order #2020-21, issued today, March 23, 2020.

Its purpose is to prevent the state’s health care system from being overwhelmed, and to avoid needless deaths, it is absolutely necessary that our Parish and members follow the Governor’s directions to remain at home or in our places of residence to the maximum extent feasible, from March 24 until April 13.

As you are aware, this time frame encompasses Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter Sunday. As your Parish Administrator, I will continue to offer daily masses (in my own house) and take guidance from the Archdiocese of Detroit and the State Governor as to when we can next have community sacramental celebrations together.

During this time, our parish offices will remain closed, and our wonderful staff will be working from their homes to keep you updated, process on-line donations and keep our Parish app, email newsletters, Facebook and website regularly updated. Our staff will continue to prepare the weekly Parish bulletin, which will be available electronically on our website and on our app. The production company is not making print copies available at this time.

Many members are worried about the upcoming Spring Fling Festival, the good news is thanks to Wyandotte Yack Arena, we have been allowed to reschedule our festival to June 26 / 27. Please note that ALL TICKETS remain valid for the new dates. This celebration will be a “delayed” St. Patrick’s Day and Easter Celebration rolled into one.

I pray the Lord protects you and your family at this time, and I look forward to seeing you personally once this pandemic has safely passed.

Fr Brendan.

SUNDAY CONTRIBUTIONS – Your Offertory envelopes can be mailed to: St. Vincent Pallotti Parish,  334 Elm St., Wyandotte. Or you can use Online Giving, by clicking HERE or on the top right hand corner of this page.

IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – Masses Suspended

March 13, 2020 – Based on the letter from Archbishop Allen Vigneron regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic – St. Vincent Pallotti Parish, with the churches of St. Joseph and St. Patrick, have suspended all week day and week end masses to keep our community safe.  This practice will continue to April 6. Please click here to read Archbishop Vigneron’s letter about this decision.

March 15, 2020 – Archbishop Vigneron’s message: “To have confidence in the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary”. Pray the Memorare each day for your intercessions.

Memorare

“Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought they intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.”

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

St. Vincent Pallotti Parish – We are one parish with two worship sites:

St. Joseph Church located at 344 Elm St. and   St. Patrick Church at 135 Superior Blvd. St. Elizabeth Catholic Church was also part of the merger with St. Joseph and St. Patrick. Sadly, St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, closed its doors on June 30, 2012.
As you browse through our website, you will find a parish rich in history and deeply committed to the traditions of our parish founders as well as to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The parish offers many opportunities for involvement by people of every age, from liturgical ministries to community outreach as well as several social functions throughout the year.
Please take time to browse our website. If you are not a parishioner, please feel free to contact us at any time to learn more about our parish and how to become a member. If you already belong, please continue to support our parish by sharing your time, talents and treasure. Call the parish office if interested in volunteering.

Fr. Mike was born on May 24, 1958 and entered the Pallottine Community in September of 1976.  He was ordained to the priesthood on June 11, 1983 in Ireland. Fr. Mike arrived in the Archdiocese of Detroit in 2004 and served as Pastor of St. Joseph Parish, St. Patrick Parish, and St. Elizabeth Parish (all in Wyandotte), before they merged to form St. Vincent Pallotti Parish. He was Pastor here in Wyandotte for a total of 15 years, 2004 through 2019.

Fr. Mike will be sadly missed.

As he would always remind us, “I’m just on the bus behind you” and now… Fr. Mike is on the bus ahead of us.

May he rest in Peace.
