Summer Scrip Hours/Order Form

June & August

Sunday: 10:00-11:00am in the church narthex.

Monday: 8:30-9:15am in the Ministry Center.

You may also drop your order off in the rectory office and we will fill it on Mondays and return the filled order to the rectory for you to pick up anytime the rectory is open.

July

Scrip is closed during the month of July so we will not place any orders. However, I will be in the scrip office on Thursday (July 6, 13, and 20) from 10:30-11:30am to sell “cash and carry” scrip. Additionally, you may drop an order off in the rectory during July and I will fill it on Thursdays for your pickup in the rectory.

Have a great summer and let me know if you have any questions!

Welcome

It’s an exciting time to be Catholic in West Michigan! The parishes and Catholic organizations in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are vibrant places of faith, generosity, education and love—alive with the Holy Spirit.

 

    • As Catholics, we believe that it is our baptismal call to bring people into relationship with Christ and to grow closer to him.

 

    • It happens when we share genuinely the message of the Gospel with those who’ve never heard it.

 

    • When we urge those who already believe to continue to deepen their faith.

 

    • And when we re-propose the Gospel to those who, though always members of the Church through their baptisms, have drifted away.

 
Most Reverend David J. Walkowiak
Bishop of Grand Rapids
