JOIN US FOR OUR 81ST ANNUAL OX ROAST FESTIVAL
The Alpha course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith that gives guests an opportunity to explore the meaning of life. Alpha is fun, relaxed and low-key. Listen, learn, discuss, and discover. Ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is off limits.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has created a website that discusses the recent Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges and the Church's beautiful teaching about marriage and human sexuality. I invite you to explore that website for your own benefit and to learn how to respond to the challenges we face in the current cultural context.

This fall, the Catholic Biblical School of Michigan (CBSM) continues with this exciting program to study Scripture at four locations in the Archdiocese of Detroit and the Diocese of Lansing. CBSM was founded to educate the minds and fill the hearts of Catholics as they embrace the Scriptures through an in-depth study of God’s Word. From Genesis through Revelation, classes over a four-year period draw from contemporary Biblical scholarship and Catholic tradition, while focusing on the needs and interests of all Catholics.
The First Week of Class: September 21, 2015; Church of the Resurrection Parish Hall, 127 Rumsey Ave., Lansing
Focused on Formation
The Church of the Resurrection and Resurrection School exist to help families fulfill their God-given responsibilities to their children. In many cases, the men and women who are parents never received a deep and strong understanding of the faith. We want to help parents grow in their own faith so that they will be able to live in ways that their children will be able to learn the faith naturally, like learning our native language. The Catholic Church provides opportunities in parishes and schools to help parents fulfill their responsibilities to feed their children spiritually. One priority for me as pastor is to create opportunities for parents to get to know Jesus personally, and to grow in their understanding of our beautiful Catholic faith. That's why we provide opportunities such as retreats, the Alpha Course, Bible Studies, and other faith formation activities. Please pray for wisdom as we make plans for further opportunities to have fellowship together and grow in our knowledge and practice of our faith.
As pastor, I am pleased that parishes like Resurrection invest heavily to make Catholic schools available and affordable to members of our community. I rejoice that we have a school and that Lansing Catholic is within our parish boundaries. As pastor, I believe strongly in the importance of parishes partnering with parents to help them grow in wisdom and knowledge. As I've said before, some families choose to educate their children at home, which is an admirable choice for those called to do so. As a pastor, I support those families and pray that the Lord would continue to lead them as they discern how the Lord would have them form their children as disciples of Christ. For those who feel overwhelmed by the challenges of home-schooling (which can be quite common), I want Resurrection School to provide a faithful option for them to consider.
