The Cross and the Light

From Father Brian:
The Cross and the Light is a two-hour concert experience that takes us through Christ’s Passion to Pentecost. Locally, this special multi-media presentation will be offered at St. Isidore Parish in Macomb on Friday, May 15 (8pm show time). I would like it if we could get a group from our parish to go. If enough are interested we can get a bus. The costs are $10 for students and $20 for adults. Beginning this weekend in church (April 11 & 12) we will have a sign-up sheet for those interested in attending. For more information, please visit or

Rev. Rene L. Desmarais Memorial Fund Scholarships

This memorial fund was established in Fr. Rene’s memory for the purpose of continuing the variety of works he began in the Port Huron community.  One of these works was to award scholarships to full time students attending SC4 or Baker College.

Scholarship applications are available in the parish office.  We ask that students attending (or planning to attend) SC4 or Baker College in the fall have their application returned to the parish office no later than May 1, 2015.
