Many of you have probably heard the term "Family of Parishes" in the last few months. On July 1, Our Lady Star of the Sea will enter into a "Family of Parishes" - grouped with other parishes in our area:
- St. Joan of Arc, St. Clair Shores
- St. Lucy, St. Clair Shores
- St. Veronica, Eastpointe
- St. Basil, Eastpointe
Synod 16 called for a complete renewal of structures of our parishes to make them radically-mission oriented. The increasing shortage of priests and the health and economic crises caused by the coronavirus pandemic accelerated this process of renewal.
In each family, the group of parishes will utilize resources (ministries, programs, events, etc.) available to each parish to advance the mission. Each Family of Parishes will be served by multiple priests and deacons. As a team, our Family will operate together and focus on needs of this area.
