2017 Faith Fest Music Festival
FaithFest 2017 is a day for Christian families to gather together and celebrate their faith in an atmosphere of upbeat, joyful participation! Parish and school groups, youth ministries, small groups or large apostolates --
all are welcome to reunite at FaithFest 2017!
Bishop Earl Boyea seeks to further “equip the Household of Faith” to become disciples of Christ so that, in His friendship, they can reach out and evangelize the wider community. To this goal, FaithFest17 offers families a day of live music, social and recreational activities, food, fireworks and fun -- all centered on a vigil Mass held “under the stars.”
A Memorable Vigil Mass
Attend Mass "under the stars" as Bishop Earl Boyea, assisted by priests and deacons of the diocese, celebrates a unique liturgy with musical direction from Melanie Rea.
An Opportunity for Prayer
Eucharistic Adoration will take place throughout the day in the chapels of the main Retreat Center and Bethany House. Reconciliation will available throughout the day.
Food, Fun and Fireworks
A "kid-friendly" food court and vendor-row is a sure way to enhance the experience. Come and enjoy the Center's stunning 95-acre campus. Fireworks at Dusk following Mass.
The Fireworks again this year will be sponsored by the Knights of Columbus of the Lansing Diocese.
Assembly Support of FaithFest17
Each Assembly within Michigan District II is being asked to support the sponsorship of the Fireworks. The goal is a $100 donation from each Assembly to support this great event.
Checks should be payable to: St. Francis Retreat Center (with K of C fireworks in the memo line)
Veteran Project Information
The Cardinal O’Hara Assembly have undertaken a very important initiative to purchase 200 Heart Pillows for the veteran’s at the Ann Arbor VA Hospital. The veteran patient hugs the pillow close to their chest to buffer the pain and complications that can result from the coughing caused by having open heart surgery.
The pillows cost $20+ from the vendor that supplies them to the VA and, to date, we have donated enough money to provide 50 pillows and have funds on hand that will allow us to purchase approximately 50 more.
Assemblies in Michigan District II are being asked to consider giving $150-$200 towards this effort, and certainly anything that your Assembly can reasonably afford. So, please consider this vital request and soon in order to help our veteran’s in need!
The details of this project may be found here.
