I am very excited today to tell you about an effort now going on throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit called Come, Encounter Christ. In anticipation of and in preparation for the archdiocesan synod on evangelization that will be held November 18-20, 2016, a series of almost 30 Eucharistic Mission Events are being offered throughout the AOD. These vibrant gatherings feature inspirational preaching, uplifting live music, Eucharistic adoration, and opportunities for private confession. Here in the Blue Water Vicariate there will be two of these missions:
- Thursday, January 21, 2016 to Saturday, January 23, 2016
St. Mary Queen of Creation, 50931 Maria, New Baltimore, MI 48047
- Wednesday, February 24, 2016 to Friday, February 26, 2016
Holy Trinity Parish (St. Stephen Church), 325 32nd Port Huron
The mission will run from 7:00 pm to about 8:30 pm each night. Come, Encounter Christ is a great opportunity to not only nourish your own faith, but also to share the faith anew with someone who has lost faith, left the Catholic Church, or is struggling in their relationship with God right now. There is no need to register, and there is no cost. For more information please give me a call or send me an email. To see a complete list of missions, visit http://www.aod.org/Being-Catholic/Evangelization/Come-Encounter-Christ/.

We are asked to bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
