Chelsea – Confreres in the United States are excitedly preparing for the upcoming visit of the Superior General and the Provincial Superior. In addition to the typical annual assemblies, this year promises to be memorable as the Congregation is celebrating the Centennial of the Birth into Heaven of the Founder. The priests and staff of the Communications Office are planning an event to commemorate the anniversary and give birth to a new movement of the Guanellian charism in Michigan. Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary Parish in Chelsea MI by Bishop Earl Boyea of the Diocese of Lansing on September 19th. During the Mass, a group of around 50 laypeople are planning to make their Promises as Guanellian Cooperators. The celebration will include time of fellowship and the sharing of a meal in thanksgiving to God for the gift of St. Louis Guanella.
