All are invited to the historical 50th Anniversary Mass at 2:00 P.M. on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. 

Archbishop Allen Vigneron will preside, Archbishop Bernard Hebda will be the homilist, along with Bishop Steven Raica, bishops from Michigan and beyond, our diocesan clergy, and all the Christian faithful. 

Bishop Walter A. Hurley warmly welcomes all:

“It is my prayer that you will be able to join in this historic and joyful celebration. For fifty years, the faithful people throughout the diocese have worked to build the local Church here in northern Michigan — there is much to be thankful for! Together, let’s celebrate the past as we look to the future with confident hope.”

Following the Mass, all are invited to attend a catered reception in the Diocesan Pastoral Center.
