Feast of St. Lawrence,

Greetings Friends,

Tonight sees our Mass & Swing Dance gathering in Brooklyn – Contrary to prior belief, there may be tickets available at the door.  Next Saturday, we’ll be in Lakeport at Fr. Acervo’s new parish and for a day at Lake Huron with the Blue Water Vicariate’s Salt and Light group.

Yesterday, those who had expressed interest (via the JM census), received news of the itinerary and costs for traveling to the young adult pilgrimage near Montreal, in three week’s time.  If you did not receive it but are interested, please let me know.

Please see below for other upcoming events of interest, including this Sunday’s pontifical low Mass at St. Josaphat.

God bless,

Frequently Asked Questions: How do I join?; How can I help?; Juventutem Michigan Schola?




Mass & Swing Dance

Tonight, members of Juventutem Michigan will gather at St. Joseph Shrine, Brooklyn, MI, for a Missa Cantata (Fr. Jeff Njus / Wassim Sarweh), as well as dinner and a swing dance.   Per a discussion on our Facebook page, we will be sing the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, & Agnus Dei from Mass IV (Cunctipotens Genitor Deus) (text and mp3s).  The intention we will pray for in a particular way during this Mass is for blessings and success for the Sursum Corda (“hearts lifted”) TLM Young Adult retreat / gathering that the ICRSP has organized in Milwaukee, this weekend.  Pictures of last summer’s gathering.

The 7:00 p.m. Mass will be preceded by the Rosary at 6:30 p.m.  Following Mass, young adults and others will join the Big Band Dance with the Johnny Knorr Orchestra, at the nearby dance hall.  Tickets for the dance cost $17.50 and it may still be possible to purchase them at the door.

Anyone can, of course, attend the Mass.  The dance is organized by the KofC and all ages of adults may attend.


Feast of the Assumption

In addition to the Mass in Jackson, an incomplete list of TLM to attend for the Holy Day of Obligation:
10:00 a.m. – Sacred Hear, Imlay City
5:30 p.m. – Blessed John XXIII, Lansing
7:00 p.m. – Assumption Grotto, Detroit (See CWR write-up: A Day for Miracles in Detroit)
7:00 p.m. – St. Josaphat, Detroit


Mass & Lake Day

On Saturday, August 18th, members of Juventutem Michigan will gather at St. Edward-on-the-Lake, the parish where our Clerical Guide, Fr. Lee Acervo, has recently been made pastor.  Members of Salt and Light, the local young adult group will be in attendance as well.

Following a 10:30 a.m. Missa Cantata for the Feast of St. Agapitus, we’ll celebrate a day of games, BBQing and swimming in Lake Huron.  Please pass along the Facebook invite.  At present, it seems likely that there will be carpools from Ann Arbor, Lansing, Royal Oak, and Windsor (!).  If you’re looking for a ride, ask.

Pilgrimage to Our Lady of the Cape

Juventutem Michigan is sending a chapter of pilgrims to the 9th annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of the Cape (website) (“Canada’s Chartres pilgrimage,” according to your correspondence), which will travel 62 miles on 1-3 September.  On the way up, pilgrims will visit the shrines and other sites of Montreal.  For more information on the traveling party, see here.  The Facebook event of the Ottawa organizers can be seen here.  Cost information can be sent upon request.  Scholarships for travel are available.

First Friday

First Friday TLMs:
3:00 p.m. – Sacred Heart, Imlay City
7:00 p.m. – St. Anthony of Padua, Hillsdale – A carpool usually travels down from Ann Arbor, if you’re in that area and would like to go.

Recap: July’s Mass & Dinner
On Saturday evening, July 21, more than 45 young adults – including a seminarian for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and a sister from the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará – gathered for the (vigil) TLM at SS. Cyril & Methodius, Sterling Heights.

Afterward, they enjoyed a delicious dinner at Ollie’s Lebanese Cuisine.  Facebook picture album.

Recap: Pilgrimage for Christian Culture 2012
This last Saturday, more that a dozen young adults made a walk of prayer from Shrine of the Little Flower (Royal Oak) to the Church of the Holy Family (Greektown).  Along the way, they prayed the whole Rosary, visited beautiful historic churches and sang the praise of God.

How do I join?
A Michigan young adult (age 18-35) can become a member of Juventutem Michigan (hereinafter “JM,” sometimes) by undertaking the commitments of Juventutem (listed on our website).  Young adults are encouraged – but not required – to prayerfully review the international charter of Juventutem (pdf) before committing to our mission.  The commitment year runs from May 24th until May 23rd of the following year.

From time to time, JM will forward to the international Bureau (HQ) the funds and registration information of those who wish to be members of JM for the remainder of the 2012-2013 year.  The international dues are 10€ – taking into account the international wiring fees, we will accept $15.  Please bring cash.

To become an enrolled member of Juventutem Michigan, you can pay the international dues and sign our rolls at any of our monthly socials.  In addition, we have prepared commitment cards which you may sign and carry to help remind of the commitments of the organization.

To assist the enrollment process, please supply your mailing address at the bottom of our survey form.

How can I help?
As a soon-to-be-registered non-profit, JM can use all sorts of help from those who believe in our mission.  As indicated above, this Google survey lists many needs that we have already identified.  Please view the survey, even if you ultimately don’t complete it.  If you are able to serve in a way that is not identified in this survey, please let us know.

Juventutem Michigan Schola?
Juventutem Michigan works to render glory to God according to Holy Mother Church’s historic liturgy, employing her rich treasury of sacred music.  To that end, we have formed a Schola – a choir committed to chant and sacred polyphony.

Please contact “Theresa Pellican” to join the JM Schola.
