The Cross and the Light Concert Experience is a two-hour experiential journey of the greatest love story of all time.

Experience who Jesus is, what he did for us, and how we are called to live. This deeply moving musical journey through Christ’s Passion to Pentecost uses the latest projection technology to transform the walls of the church into a virtual canvas that surrounds and immerses the audience into the story.

The music tells the story and the story changes lives!

THE MESSAGE OF DIVINE MERCY
It is not easy to love with a deep love, which lies in the authentic gift of self. This love can only be learned by penetrating the mystery of God's love. Looking at Him, being one with His fatherly heart, we are able to look with new eyes at our brothers and sisters, with an attitude of unselfishness and solidarity, of generosity and forgiveness. All this is mercy!

Thus the message of Divine Mercy is also a message about the value of every human being. Each person is precious in God's eyes; Christ gave His Life for each one; to everyone the Father gives His Spirit and offers intimacy. It is not a new message but can be considered a gift of enlightenment that helps us to relive the Gospel of Easter more intensely, to offer it as a ray of light to the men and women of our time.

Please join us in the St Isidore Social Hall for Discovering Christ. Enjoy hospitality, listen to a dynamic teaching and join in a small group discussion about the meaning of life in Jesus Christ. Discovering Christ is a seven-week series that will begin Tuesday, Apr 14th, and includes a life-changing retreat on Saturday, May 16th.

We invite you to watch a Discovering Christ youtube video to learn more about the course: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-QPh2_3n2k or visit http://christlife.org/ for more information.

This course is designed for you to revitalize your faith or to bring your friends and family who have been away from the church and are open to exploring the meaning of life in Jesus Christ.

Discovering Christ was developed by ChristLife, a Catholic ministry in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Diaper and Formula Drive

Have your heard? As part of our Christian Service Outreach,
St. Isidore is opening a BABY CLOSET!!

Through your generosity, we will be able to spread Christ’s love to some of the smallest of His people throughout Northern Macomb County. We will be collecting any and ALL size diapers, and ENFAMIL brand formula only (powder or ready-to-feed). Please look for the special “BABY CLOSET” collection boxes near the St. Vincent De Paul boxes at both the Romeo Plank and the 23 Mile Road Doors.
