Parish leaders gather for Missionary Renewal Assembly in Novi (VIDEO)

NOVI — The Missionary Renewal Assembly was a three-day event June 27-29, 2023, that brought together parish leaders from across the Archdiocese of Detroit to renew their commitment "to be a Church on mission" and discuss working together within a Family of Parishes.

“Today, I ask each of you, please, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to accept my invitation to renew your commitment to say again what we said at Synod 16: to resolve to be the Church on mission — this is what the Holy Spirit asks of us,” said Archbishop Vigneron, whose pastoral letter, "Unleash the Gospel," has served as a roadmap for the archdiocese since the synod.

Speakers included Fr. Roger Landry, a priest of the Diocese of Fall River, Mass., who currently serves as chaplain to Columbia University in New York City; Marcel LeJeune, president and founder of Catholic Missionary Disciples; Chris Kozlowski and Chris Piebiak, mission support director and director of family ministries for the Disciples Unleashed Family of Parishes, respectively; author, speaker and motivational coach Patrick Lencioni; and Dan Cellucci, CEO of the Catholic Leadership Institute.
