Temporary Safety Precautions


Update:  The Archdiocese of Detroit has extended the public celebration of Masses and other religious gatherings in compliance with the Governor's Executive Order (March 23, 2020) through Easter Monday, April 13rd.  For guidelines and updates concerning parishes and other Catholic institutions please visit the Archdiocese of Detroit website.     
     This past weekend following the directives of the Archdiocese of Detroit concerning the pandemic of the Corona virus, our community (as well as all other Catholic institutions in the diocese) suspended offering retreats, celebrating Masses and other Liturgical services to the public until April 6th.  During this time the monks dearly miss the presence our friends and the youth groups who usually come to the monastery to “break bread” with us.  Be assured of our prayers, not only for the those who are suffering from the Corona virus as well as the safety of the public, but also for the Spirit’s strength and guidance for those who are absent from our celebration of the Eucharist.
