Custody of St. Clare of Montefalco

Written by 

On the first day of August history was made in the annals of our Congregation, as the Michaelite Fathers took the custody of St. Clare of Montefalco parish in Grosse Point Park, Michigan, USA. It is our first Michaelite parish in the USA. Until then, the parish was administered by the Augustinians Friars from its beginnings in 1926. Fr. Andrew Kowalczyk was appointed as the pastor. Fr. John Burczyk will serve as the Administrator of the parish until Fr. Andrew receives his immigration papers. The parish has an elementary school for about 140 students where Servite Sister is the principal. There are around 750 families registered in the parish. The nearby parish of St. Philomena is clustered with St. Clare. As we embark on this new and exciting journey south of our border we ask for prayers and we invoke special intercession of St. Michael.
