21st Street Update from the City of Grand Rapids - June 7, 2022.

The main 21st Street entrance to the parish parking lot was closed on July 20.  Until our new church entrance is built, please use the entrance off of Forest Hills Avenue that goes through the St. Joseph’s School parking lot.  This will significantly slow traffic to and from church, so please plan accordingly.

Email and text hackers target the public in many ways, even posing as clergy, asking for money or personal information. Please be aware of these fake phishing emails (and texts) that are enticing you to take the bait: such as click on a link, give personal information, or respond in some way. Delete these suspicious emails or texts and do not respond to them.
