Fr. Bloomfield's Blog

I am a Roman Catholic Priest of the Archdiocese of Detroit, currently assigned to Divine Child Parish in Dearborn, Michigan. When I manage to keep the page updated, hopefully something interesting can be found here!

Back from France!

I have safely returned from pilgrimage and retreat, refreshed and strengthened for the Liturgies of Holy Week. Watch for pictures from the Abbey of Fontgombault, as well as our other pilgrimage sites: Amiens, Rouen, Lisieux, Bayeux, Omaha Beach, Le Mont-Saint-Michel, Le Mans, Chartres, Orleans, Blois, Tours, and Poitiers.

Among the interesting items we had the opportunity to venerate were the relic of the skull of St. John the Baptist (Amiens Cathedral) and the Veil of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Chartres Cathedral). I also was blessed to celebrate Mass at the tomb of St. Martin of Tours and in the Carmel of Lisieux (St. Therese).

Stay tuned.
