All of life is reflected in the Psalms. Composed in Hebrew in the 6th and 8th centuries, the Psalter was used for prayer by the communities of those times. The psalms are written poetically and are rich in symbols of human experience because they are musical. In Hebrew the psalter is called the "book of praises" and in Greek it is called psalmos or 'song.' This does not mean that there was always an instrument used in the recitation of the psalms, but that they were used for early liturgical gatherings. The Psalms contain some of our earliest liturgical compositions of thanksgiving and praise, grief and lamentation, salvation and mercy. COME JOIN US ON TUESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 16TH AT 7:00 PM (following the Lenten Soup Supper) for a presentation on The Psalms of Mercy. The splendor of the psalms and their beautiful appreciation of God's mercy will be presented in the hope that you will discover the great gifts of prayer for mercy contained in them.

Hear Archbishop Allen Vigneron and Bishop Michael Byrnes talk about the New Evangelization in the Archdiocese of Detroit. “The New Evangelization
unfolding and breathe new life into the Church in Detroit. Unleash the Gospel
is a major push to change the DNA of the Church in Detroit to one of a Body of
Christ on mission. What we are attempting is nothing less than a radical
overhaul of the Church in Detroit, a complete reversal of our focus from
inward, or maintenance-focused, to outward, or mission-focused. We seek to bring about this change first in our hearts, through an encounter with Christ. Then in our homes as we grow in our faith. And finally in our culture as we become a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ." -Visit the Archdiocese of Detroit website to watch more online.
The Archdiocese of Detroit is committed to Evangelization, continually looking to
