LATIN MASSES...THE TRADITION CONTINUES.
Immaculate Conception Church celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8:45 A.M. On Sunday's the Traditional High Mass is celebrated at 12:00 PM, employing the Church’s rich treasury of sacred music.
Please join us as we celebrate this most Solemn Tradition at Immaculate Conception once again.
Lighthouse Catholic Media's mission is to help Catholics understand, live, and share their faith. All of our programs and offerings, including our video-based study programs, FORMED, our Graduate School of Theology, as well as our books and Lighthouse Talks, help our Apostolate reach souls for Christ.

The individual whose preliminary exam began today, August 27, in 41-A District Court in Shelby Township, Neil Kalina, was ordained in 1981 for the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (PIME), a religious order that operates separately from the Archdiocese of Detroit. Close to 30 religious orders currently serve in the Detroit archdiocese – the PIMEs, the Jesuits, the Capuchins, etc. – ministering in schools, institutions and organizations, and, in some cases, are assigned to parish ministry. Kalina was assisting at at parishes – not as a pastor – in Shelby Township and Sterling Heights in the mid-1980s. He left the Detroit archdiocese in 1986; he abandoned active ministry in 1993.
An allegation of child abuse against him was brought to the Archdiocese of Detroit in 2017. Per our agreement with the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office, we turned over the complaint to the Shelby Township Police Department. In addition, we turned over the complaint to the PIME religious order. The allegation was included in the material collected by the Attorney General’s Office in the fall of 2018.Read More

Last week, Cardinal Roger Etchegaray passed away. Perhaps his was not a household name, but this very decent man made a substantive contribution to the life of the Church, serving in a number of different capacities over the years and collaborating closely with St. Pope John Paul II. I had the privilege of meeting him in the mid 1990s when he visited Mundelein Seminary, where I was serving as professor of theology. The Cardinal wanted to address the community, but his English was a bit shaky, so I translated for him. But I recall that his smile and evident joy in the Lord needed no translation whatsoever. The first time I ever laid eyes on Roger Etchegaray was some years before that, on an extraordinary day in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris: the funeral of the legendary theologian Henri de Lubac. A third-year doctoral student at the time, I had…

Something on clear display in the Bible and in the history of the Church is that a mission that is authentically from God tends to draw people to itself. When Peter and his companions were overwhelmed by the miraculous draught of fishes, other fishermen rushed to the scene to help them. When Mother Teresa made her way into the streets of Calcutta to care for the sick and dying, she was joined, within weeks, by many of her former students. One of the great privileges of my life has been my involvement with the Word on Fire apostolate. Something I have watched with fascination and deep spiritual joy is that so many people from around the country have been drawn by God’s providence into this ministry. This past week, for the first time ever, we gathered in Santa Barbara all twenty-five members of the Word on Fire team for days…

Algo que se ve claramente en la Biblia y a lo largo de la historia de la Iglesia es que una misión que viene auténticamente de Dios tiende a arrastrar a la gente hacia ella. Cuando Pedro y sus compañeros se vieron superados por la pesca milagrosa, otros pescadores se apresuraron a ayudarles. Cuando la Madre Teresa se adentró en las calles de Calcuta para atender a los enfermos y moribundos, se le unieron, en cuestión de semanas, muchas de sus antiguas alumnas. Uno de los grandes privilegios de mi vida ha sido haberme unido al apostolado de Word on Fire. Algo que he observado con fascinación y gran alegría espiritual es que tantas personas de todo el país hayan sido arrastradas por la Providencia Divina a este ministerio. La semana pasada, por primera vez, reunimos en Santa Bárbara a los veinticinco miembros del equipo de Word on Fire para…
