    Revive Detroit Evangelization Initiative

    • Description: The Archdiocese of Detroit and the New Orleans-based Hope and Purpose Ministries have reached an agreement to create “Revive Detroit,” an urban evangelization ministry with a series of events and gatherings to begin in August at the northwest Detroit parishes of Corpus Christi and St. Scholastica. Archbishop Vigneron formally invited the founder and leader of Hope and Purpose Ministries, Deacon Larry Oney, to partner with archdiocesan clergy and lay leaders to form the Revive Detroit ministry with the specific intent to ignite the faithful to become passionate, missionary disciples of Christ. In his letter of invitation, the Archbishop said, “Your planning and enthusiasm for this project have given me great excitement and hope for our renewed efforts of sharing Christ in and through the Church in the city of Detroit.” Revive Detroit is part of an archdiocesan-wide evangelization initiative, including a synod in the fall of 2016.
