Candidate David Conn: I was r aised in the Fir st Congr egational Chur ch and was an active member until I was a young adult. However, during my college years I drifted away from going. After my graduation, I began attending various churches but never felt comfortable in any one that I would visit. I have relatives that are members of the Catholic Church, including my grandparents, wife and son. I have always had an interest in the Catholic Church and its teachings, but unfortunately never pursued my interest. Then four years ago, my two daughters went through the RCIA program and were confirmed at Divine Child. This reignited my desire to join my family’s religion and I finally decided to explore the Catholic religion further. Going through the RCIA program is such an incredible journey and I have learned so much about the Catholic Church. Learning about the covenants, beginning with the creation through the birth of Christ and the various sacraments has been very meaningful for me. I feel so blessed that God has called me to Him and His beloved son Jesus Christ. Through God’s Divine blessing, I will complete the RCIA program and will be confirmed in the Catholic Church of The Divine Child during the most Holy Week of Easter. Thanks be to God for this wonderful gift.

David Conn and Danielle Dombrowski

David’s Sponsor, Danielle Dombrowski: When my Dad asked me to be his sponsor , I was tr uly honor ed. Having went thr ough the RCIA process myself as an adult; I know how critical this role is to his journey. Being a sponsor has been such a rewarding experience for me, one for which I am so thankful. It has allowed me to share in my Dad’s preparations as he learns the principles, rituals and foundations of the Catholic Church, his joy as he develops a deeper relationship with God and in his fulfillment as he grows in his faith. It has also blessed me with the opportunity to support and guide him, as he has always done for me!

Gary, Ashley, Colton & Blake Rule

Meet Catechumens Gary and Ashley Rule: Born and raised in Dearborn, Gary and I were childhood friends who fell in love and married in 2009. Growing up, I was raised in a faithful home, and regularly attended services at my grandparent’s church. Gary would also attend services with his sister as a child. Today, we both agree that there is something physically different about being in a Catholic Church than any other church we had been in – warmth, comfort and a feeling of peace. After having our children, Colton and Blake, Gary and I felt strongly that God was inviting us to become a Catholic family. It truly was a physical feeling in my heart – and while it’s hard to explain – I know that with my entire being what God was asking of our family. Divine Child’s R.C.I.A program has been such an incredible experience for Gary and I (and my mother Lisa, who is participating as a Candidate), and we look forward to April when we are fully received into the Catholic Church. We also feel extremely blessed (and excited) that our son Colton was accepted into Divine Child Elementary as a Kindergartner this fall. –Go Falcons!!

Ashley’s Sponsor, Kathleen Blaha (Brooks ‘01) It’s amazing how God works! When I was asked to become Ashley’s sponsor I felt called by the Holy Spirit to support her in any way possible. It’s been a pleasure getting to know Ashley & her family and watching their faith grow. It’s an honor and humbling experience, to witness an adult choosing and preparing to enter into the Catholic faith. I’m so glad our paths have crossed, and we can walk together on this journey. I look forward to the Easter Vigil when we will rejoice together and welcome Ashley and her family into our faith community. Kathleen, Sophia & Andy Blaha Meet Candidate Jose Casillas: Gr owing up I was r aised Catholic and family was involved in the chur ch. As a young man my gr andma was the most active and made sure that we went to church. As a teen I started to lose my way and my Catholic faith and was heading on a bad path. I was in such a bad place that I just forgot that God was there for me. It’s funny how the Lord works in mysterious ways. My young friend Roel approached me and asked me to be his sponsor and of course I told him, yes. Then I thought to myself, I haven’t received my First Holy Communion or Confirmation. In order to make that young man proud, I started thinking about my faith again, and searching for places that would accept me to finish my sacraments. Out of all the places that I contacted Divine Child was the only parish that accepted me on short notice. The first day that I attended my RCIA class I did not know what to expect. Of course, you feel nervous like your first day of school, but I can say that everybody was very welcoming and supportive. I can truly say that attending RCIA has changed my life for the better. Even though my journey has just begun, I know God is there with me every step of the way. Jodi Ann, I’m very thankful for the opportunity you gave me to build my faith and become stronger with God, and embrace my Catholic faith. Meet Candidate Amy Christner: I gr ew up in the Luther an Chur ch and my husband gr ew up in the Catholic Chur ch. I have been attending the Catholic Church for many years now and would like to participate fully in the Mass. Having raised our daughter in the Catholic Church, I thought I knew a lot about the Catholic religion. I have learned even more through the RCIA program. This experience has been very uplifting and has strengthened my relationship with Jesus. I am very thankful to the Church of Divine Child for the opportunity. Amy’s sponsor Sara King: I've known Amy for many year s and have enjoyed building our fr iendship. We have suppor ted each other through lots of life's ups and downs. Amy has always inspired me to be a better, more faithful person. I'm truly blessed that she asked me to be her sponsor through her RCIA journey. Supporting Amy's growth in her faith has not only deepened both of our relationships with God but also our friendship. I'm so proud of her.

Chasing Happiness During Lent A keynote speaker, professor Catherine A. Sanderson of University of Amherst, explained there are 10 ways to increase your everyday happiness, based on her book Science of Happiness. I have expanded her “points” to relevant, effective behavior in Lent to become happier, in the long-run, with God. It’s the journey that is the prized possession. You absolutely need a significant journey in order to get the ticket to Heaven. Make little changes in daily routine, such as getting mor e sleep, exercising while listening to Pandora’s free spiritual music, getting out into nature and truly listening to our “friends” in the forest and adding short bursts of devotional time for prayer. Read more books. If r eading isn’t your thing, expand and challenge your mind, i.e. theology or catholic-based recordings… getting wired in with free “Libby” at the Library which has new audible books Lifelong learners remain healthy and experience longevity. Besides, books engage you and make you happy. Find your right fit or match, both personally and professionally. If you love what you do and who you are with, this will create happiness. With professional happiness, comes success, and the subsequent ability to share your blessings with the needy. Be grateful. Keep a daily “gr atitude jour nal.” W rite during that quiet, meditative prayer time. Reference the “ little black book.” Turn back pages in your journal and reflect on your earlier writings. Be grateful for Lent since fasting is making you a “healthier you.”

Smile more –even if you don’t feel like it. This tricks your brain and you escape a dreary mood of unhappiness. God wants everyone to feel joy. Relish simple, everyday moments. Appr eciate life’s small “wonder” moments, such as a sunny day, the swollen buds on trees, shrubs, and perennials, the song of birds. These “free” moments teach us to be grateful, especially during moments of unrest or angst. Perform random acts of kindness. Go out and do something to feed your soul. Take a friend to Adoration, make a pot of soup and share it, skip those fancy lattes and take your newfound cash to a collection box that serves the needy (almsgiving). Kindness will revolve back to you; this is part of God’s plan for you. Spend money on experiences versus things…studies confir m that “experiences” lead to greater happiness and create a “happiness residue” and our perceptions of them get better over time. V isit different churches for Mass, attend a retreat, go to a concert, sign up for a “faith-based” trip. Avoid comparisons. When you compar e, you despair . Things ar e messier than you think. Acceptance is ultimately a desired behavior that God teaches us. Build and maintain close relationships. Value ever yone in your “circle of trust.” Let in new friendships. Let go of ones with discord. Build people up, and never resort to tearing them down. Remember, it’s the simple things that matter most. Direct your own happiness this Lent. It’s a good thing. ~~Mindy Delano

Foley’s Forum Bishop Foley Council 2660 serving Dearborn since 1927

WHAT IS A MAN?...ASK A KNIGHT! Last Saturday, thirty men attended the 8:30 morning Mass and then retreated to the APR in the High School for a spiritual reflection from our pastor and Foley Chaplain Fr. Jim. The men enjoyed a light breakfast and coffee and then Fr. Jim extolled upon us our roles as men. In case you missed it, here is what you missed! With today’s societal pressures, men are finding it difficult to understand what “today’s man” is supposed to be. Who are we as men; and more importantly, who are we as CATHOLIC men? Father Jim encouraged us men to look to St. Joseph as a model. We can learn a lot from one of the most important persons in the Gospels whose words are never recorded. St. Joseph is the foster-father of Jesus and chaste spouse of our Blessed Mother. As men, as husbands, as fathers, when we look to Joseph we can empathize, but never fully comprehend his trials. He is betrothed to a woman who becomes pregnant; what social and personal stigma must he have had to deal with? He is visited by angels on numerous occasions and always obeys their directions. His task is to protect God and the God-bearer, not an easy job when the king is set on killing your child! Two thousand years ago culture and society had its pressures just as it has its grip on men today. St. Joseph listened to his faith, to God and to His angels and did not give in to the pressures of the culture. Fr. Jim spoke of five characteristics of the man St. Joseph embodied. As men, as husbands, as fathers, we can all try to mirror them. Protector: man is called to pr otect. Pr otect his family of cour se, but also protect the gifts God has given him. These gifts should be secured to be used for the glory and honor of God and not to advance the decline and degradation of our society. Provider: more than just a provider of material needs, but the one who contributes to the spiritual nourishment of our loved ones and those around us. Studies show that 67-75% of children who see their fathers go to Mass and pray are more likely to attend church as an adult. Isn’t that an important tradition we should pass on to our children? Chaste Love: although we want to think only of chastity and celibacy, it is much more. Chaste love is a deep commitment to ones calling, whether it is in marriage, priest or religious life or as a single person. It is being in tune with the covenant that God calls us to be in. Obedience: one of the hardest virtues of manhood. It is so easy for a man to want only to be obedient to himself, yet it is humility that allows us to become obedient to God our Father! Man of Action: we ar e called as men to be a “doer of the Wor d”; that is, to go out and live the Gospel of Jesus, to preach by actions while not having to say a word.

WHEN: SUNDAY, MARCH 31 WHERE: Church of the Divine Child by St. Joseph Altar TIME: 11:30am (stay after 10am Mass or come early to 12:30pm Mass)

Some of the Knights who attended the Reflection, with a photo bomb from John Orischak.

Fr. Jim left us all feeling inspired to be the men God wants us to be. It is our brotherhood as Knights of Columbus that will help us to be that Simon of Cyrene, who helped Jesus on that via Delarosa; and be the man that is there for his brother to help make him a better man, a better husband, a better father and a better Catholic. Together we can be that man. Is that man you? If you have been thinking about joining Foley Council, call Steve Lentz our Foley Membership Director at 313-9495162. We are hoping to have another Major Degree in late Spring. Remember, you must be at least a 1st Degree member to attend meetings.

Foley Chaplain Fr. Jim, addressing the men at the Foley Spiritual Reflection.
