PRAISE BE JESUS CHRIST, NOW AND FOREVER!
The Catholic Community of Flint presently has sacramental responsibility for six parishes. We have five priests now, but eventually will be four. It is also important that we begin to act as one Catholic Community. We need to break down our parochial boundaries and understand that our future requires a joint effort. Thus, effective the weekend of September 3rd and 4th there will be a new Mass schedule for our cluster of parishes.
Saturday Evening:
4:00 p.m. St. John Vianney
4:30 p.m. St. Matthew’s

Sunday:
8:00 a.m. St. John Vianney
9:00 a.m. St. Michael’s
10:00 a.m. St. Mary’s
10:30 a.m. St. Matthew’s
11:00 a.m. St. John Vianney
7:00 p.m. St. John Vianney

We will no longer have competing Mass times among our cluster parishes. You are welcome to attend any of these Masses and may place your envelope in the collection and it will be processed at your registered parish. This schedule is not a matter of fairness, and I recognize that fact. It is a matter of economics, that is, money to pay all our bills; and a matter of number of priests and the number of Masses that they say on a weekend. Hopefully the schedule will accommodate most of the needs of our community.
Remember we also have responsibility for Masses at All Saints and Our Lady of Guadalupe. At times you may have a different priest each weekend. These priests are assigned to Flint and are OUR PRIESTS. We will continue to keep office hours at our parishes. We will also publish a confession schedule for reconciliation in the near future.
You are all in my prayers and heart. May Our Mother of Perpetual Help guide and bless us.
Fr. Tom

     
     
     
WEEKLY REFLECTIONS

Humility is a highly valued but often misunderstood virtue. Humility does not mean minimizing or negating our gifts nor the resources we have been blessed with. Rather, it is remembering that all we have, talents and wealth, are gifts from God. It means we are realistic and acknowledge the gifts we have and those that others have. These gifts have been given to us so that we may serve others. Humility does not use a rating scale; it respects and honors others and seeks to serve. How humble are you?

Conduct your affairs with humility
and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.

SIRACH 3:17

OUR MISSION
We, the faith community of St. John Vianney, are called by God to be a people of prayer, to live the Word, and to celebrate the Sacraments. We commit ourselves to become a warm and welcoming community, reaching out to others in need. By calling forth the varieties of gifts, talents, and ministries, we seek to provide an open environment with opportunities for all to grow in holiness and loving service.
