From Feb. 21 – 24, presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world will meet at the Vatican to discuss the clergy sexual abuse scandal and our global response as a Catholic Church. In a continuing effort to be as transparent as possible, Bishop Walkowiak would like to share an update on this topic and answer some of the questions he has received from parishioners. You can watch his video response at http://bit.ly/DJWmessagefeb2019
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

This video was from our Vocations Benefit Dinner hosted by the Knights of Columbus last month. This benefit was for all the Seminarians in the Diocese of Grand Rapids, not simply our own.
Enjoy this little glimpse into the formation of our guys and please keep them in your prayers.
