It’s an exciting time to be Catholic in West Michigan! The parishes and Catholic organizations in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are vibrant places of faith, generosity, education and love—alive with the Holy Spirit.
- As Catholics, we believe that it is our baptismal call to bring people into relationship with Christ and to grow closer to him.
- It happens when we share genuinely the message of the Gospel with those who’ve never heard it.
- When we urge those who already believe to continue to deepen their faith.
- And when we re-propose the Gospel to those who, though always members of the Church through their baptisms, have drifted away.
Most Reverend David J. Walkowiak
