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.
4:00 p.m. St. John Vianney
4:30 p.m. St. Matthew’s
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

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
You are all in my prayers and heart.
May Our Mother of Perpetual Help guide and bless us.
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
Conduct your affairs with humility
and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.

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.
