The Parable Project
Performing God's stories that shape human hearts
Wednesday, March 26th, 7 p.m.
in the Fr. Bush Parish Center
The Parable Project tells the stories Jesus told to bring home the messages of the Gospel. The project uses drama, humor, and audience participation to bring nine parables to life, including The Good Samaritan and the Parable of the Sower. In The Lost Sheep, the audience actually plays the 99 sheep, “baaaing” on cue! The audience watches, participates, and experiences these stories in a creative and fun way. Jesus knew the power of a good story and his parables teach us lessons that help us love like him.
The Parable Project is a drama ministry that helps audiences identify with the resounding lessons of goodness in a way that will stick to their hearts.
This is an event you won’t want to miss - perfect for all ages. So grab a friend and join us for a great evening!

We always leave feeling renewed and ready to be better wives, mothers and children of God.
Meetings require no preparation. You are welcome to come as you are, and come when you can – and not to worry when you can’t! There is no member roster, attendance-taking, book to purchase, or cost to attend. Bibles are provided for the meetings.

Prayer for Our Country
Every Friday at 3 p.m. in Church
Help put God back in America! If you are concerned about the direction our country is taking, please join us in church every Friday at 3 p.m. We will pray for help to reverse the drift away from God and freedom, to give us the courage to reject the culture of death, and the strength to build a new culture of life and to stir the hearts of our leaders so we remain one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all. The more voices, the stronger our prayer.
Coffee and Donuts or Pizza
Please remember to join us in the Father Bush Parish Center after the 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 12:00 p.m. Masses. We have coffee and donuts after the Sunday morning Masses and pizza is served after the 12:00 p.m. Mass. Come visit with your fellow parishioners.
The first weekend of every month
We depend on your generosity to stock our St. Joseph Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. Please remember the needy as you shop. Bring nonperishable items to Mass the first weekend of every month. Your bags may be placed on the steps at the sides of the altar. Each weekend beforehand, we list in the parish bulletin items that are especially needed that month. Your generosity is appreciated especially by our clients.
Family Promise of Genesee County
Family Promise of Genesee County has announced its scheduled opening. It will begin serving families in February. When the doors open, Holy Family Catholic Church will function as a support congregation instead of a host congregation, a decision which reflects the needs of our parish and its facilities, at this time. As a support congregation, the many volunteers already committed will still serve families facing a housing crisis alongside members of another, nearby, church. Holy Family will support New Life Community Lutheran, off Torrey Road, in Mundy Township. Volunteers will be able to provide meals to enjoy with families and help with other social activities, along with other necessary tasks.
Our coordinators, parishioners Amy Deloney and Lindsay Moore, will be in contact with volunteers about upcoming dates and training. If any other parishioners are interested in volunteering, please contact the parish office (694-4891).
Promise to Protect / Pledge to Heal
If you have been abused or victimized by someone representing the Catholic Church… Please believe in the possibility for hope and help and healing. We encourage you to come forward and speak out. Every arch/diocese/eparchy in the United States now has a victim assistance coordinator who is available to obtain support for your needs, to help you make a formal complaint of abuse to the arch/diocese/eparchy, and to arrange a personal meeting with the bishop or his representative, if you desire. The victim assistance coordinator for your arch/diocese/eparchy is: Adrienne Rowland, LMSW, ACSW, 1-888-308-6252 / email@example.com.
