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
 

It is tempting to focus on the affairs of others rather than to have to deal with our own problems. It may even provide us some comfort to think that we could be in worse straights. Being a busybody is not what we are called to as disciples. Our attention should be on the work at hand and caring for our families and neighbors. When we think of others, it should not be with the aim of finding fault but of finding needs that we may help them. What are you “busy” about?

 

Teach me Your ways, O Lord; and lead me on a level path.

Psalm 27:11

 

THE WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS

“I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed
personal encounter with Jesus Christ.

Always remember this: life is a journey. It is a path, a journey, to meet Jesus. At the end and forever.

Those who believe see with a light that illuminates their entire journey for it comes from the Risen Christ, the Morning Star, which never sets.

The Birth of Jesus Brings us the Good News that we are loved immensely and uniquely by God.

When Jesus is the center, Light shines even amid the darkest times of our lives.

May the commitment to journeying in faith and behaving in a manner consistent with the Gospel accompany you this Advent season.”

     
 

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.
