Men's Retreat Weekend, October 20-22


The Catholic Lawyers Society's annual Men's Retreat will be held from October 20-22 at Manresa Jesuit Retreat House in Bloomfield Hills.  Fr. Leo Cachat, SJ, 40 years a missionary in India and Nepal, and Dianne Schultz will take you away from the busyness and noise of our daily lives, and bring you to a place of peace, quiet and reflection. Using the centuries‐old Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, you’ll come to a new understanding of yourself and your relationship with Christ, your family and friends. Besides the conferences, you may attend Mass, a healing service, reconciliation, Stations of the Cross, Eucharistic Adoration and other prayerful activities.

Detroit Gesu Catholic Church and School Book Now Available



The new book "Detroit Gesu Catholic Church and School" chronicles the history of one of Detroit's most influential parishes. The book is full of nearly 200 photos from 1922 to today. Among its parishioners were four Detroit mayors, members of Congress, sports stars, auto industry titans and actors and artists. For author Patricia Montemurri, the book also reflects family history.  The architects who designed or redesigned Gesu church, rectory, convent and school gym were her husband Paul G Diehl's grandfather and father. His mother's side of the family owned Detroit Stained Glass Works, which designed the church's windows. 

Montemurri will be signing books at Gesu when the Detroit Mass Mob visits for 10:30 a.m. Mass on Oct. 15 at Gesu, 17180 Oak Drive, Detroit. Books sold through Gesu produce the most profit for Gesu School. The book retails for $21.99, and Gesu receives about 50 percent of list price when it's sold through Gesu.  If the book is bought online via Arcadia or Amazon, that doesn't happen. If you can't make the Mass Mob event, you can order the book directly from Gesu. https://www.gesuschool.udmercy.edu/
