Lenten Resources

Prayer & Fasting Opportunities:

Parish Fasting Sign Up:
This Lent, we want to unite the prayer and fasting of our parishioners. In order to do this, we are inviting everyone to sign up for an extra day of fasting during this season of Lent to pray for the following intentions:
• For Bishop Boyea
• For our parish grouping (St. John the Baptist, Christ the King, and St. Joseph Ypsilanti)
• For the deeper healing and conversion of our parish

Please help us to pray for these intentions by signing up for a date here.
