First, some important notes about things in progress and forthcoming...
- We are one week away from the Election and in the midst of a Novena.
- Tonight, Fr. Perrone is the guest speaker at the St. Monica Sodality and the session is open. He will speak on the Tridentine. My understanding is that the Sodality gathers for the Holy Rosary at 6:30pm, assists at the 7:00pm Mass, then meets in the lounge.
- Assumption Grotto will have an all night Adoration Vigil on Election Eve. Click here for details.
- Sts Cyril & Methodius in Sterling Heights will hold round-the-clock Adoration on October 29-31.
- Assumption Grotto has a wine-tasting/Italian Dinner fundraiser following the 4pm Mass. Tickets are $25 per person and $40 per couple.
- A Fall Cotillion is coming up at Assumption Grotto on November 8th (just like the Winter Cotillian). Funds raised will go toward's the new musical, The Heritance. Folks - this is the kind of thing that makes Grotto interesting. People get all decked out in fashions from 100-200+ years ago and they have an interesting band - Michigan Ruffwater String Band.
