Fortunate Families  Detroit Friends and Supporters,

Our next meeting , previously scheduled for Jan. 26th, is now scheduled for
Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020.   Hopefully this will not inconvenience you and you will join us in the rectory after the 10:45 Mass on that day.  Our last meeting yielded some new directions which  have been acted upon over the past month with positive results.  Fr. Vic will stop by during our meeting. Attached is his response to the Courage Meeting he attended sponsored by the Archdiocese.

As we begin this new decade, we celebrate a new beginning for spreading the message of Fortunate Families.

Please lend your support, your voice, and your energy to help us spread the Fortunate Families ministry in our archdiocese.

Sending each of you heartfelt wishes for a New Year filled with grace and peace!

                   2019 PRIDE WEEKEND

What a wonderful experience we had the weekend of June 8th & 9th at Motor

City Pride !!   Christ the King Parish, Gesu Parish, and Fortunate Families Detroit marched in the parade on Sunday.  You can see some of our pictures below.

As we marched with our banners, we were greeted with  enthusiastic applause

and cheering to see the Catholic presence we represented for this event!

We also had a booth at Hart Plaza on both Sat. and Sun. staffed by members of Christ the King, Gesu, Fortunate Families, and St. Mary's Student Parish in Ann Arbor.  We shared information about our welcoming parishes and spoke with many people about Fortunate Families and the work that we do. As

always our presence at Pride was noted with amazement and gratitude.  Many people stopped by just to say, "Thanks for being here!   It means so much to see Catholics at this event!"


Wish all of you could have shared this wonderful outreach to the people of this city!  We are proud to have been a part of it!!
