St. Colette Parish Named as Member of Family of Parishes
On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, Archbishop Allen Vigneron announced plans for the future mission of the Church here in the Archdiocese of Detroit with Families of Parishes. A Family of Parishes is a grouping of three or more parishes that collaborates in deeper and more intentional ways than parishes have ever done before. Each parish in a Family will retain its own unique identity, similar to how each sibling has his or her own unique role in a human family. This is not a parish cluster or merger as we have done in the past. Rather, Families of Parishes share similarities to other models that have been implemented in other diocese of the United States and Canada, with new parish structures to support the Church’s mission. What we learned from Synod ’16 and a new Vatican document, “The Pastoral Conversion of the Parish Community in the Service of Evangelizing Mission of the Church” is that parishes need to be realigned for mission. These new Families of Parishes will collaborate by sharing resources – including priests, deacons, staffs and programs across parish lines – to further advance the mission Christ has entrusted to the Church.
Every parish of the Archdiocese will participate in this renewed structure. Since Pentecost Sunday 2020, our Regional Bishops and Vicars have been working with priests to determine which parishes will come together to form Families. On December 9th is was announced that St. Colette Parish will be part of a Family of Parishes that includes the local parishes of St. Edith in Livonia, St. Kenneth in Plymouth, and Our Lady of Victory in Northville. The planning process for the creation of our Family will begin in January 2021 and the implementation will begin in July 2021.

Adopt a Seminarian with Your Prayers
Every year, we provide small prayer cards which include a photo of an Archdiocese of Detroit seminarian on one side and a vocation prayer on the other side. This year's 2020-2021 seminarian cards are available in the Gathering Space of the church on the vocations table, on the counter near the bulletin board, and on the windowsill to the right of the altar. Please take one or more of the cards and give some of your time to prayer for these seminarians as they discern their future roles serving the Church.
