Senior Citizen
Mass and Breakfast

This year's Senior Citizen Mass and Breakfast was well attended and enjoyed by all.  In fact, the French Toast Casserole was so popular that we're providing the recipe below!

Easy French Toast Casserole

Prep:  15 minutes
Let sit overnight or 8 hours
Cook 35 minutes


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) loaf crusty French Bread, cut into bite-size pieces, or as needed
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, or as needed


  1. Grease a 9x12-in baking dish.
  2. Stir 1 cup brown sugar and butter together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves into the butter, 2 to 4 minutes.  Pour into prepared baking dish and spread a 1 1/2 - 2 inch layer of bread pieces over the top.
  3. Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; pour milk mixture over bread in the baking dish and move bread as necessary to ensure all bread is absorbing liquid.  Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.  Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).  Remove and discard plastic wrap from baking dish and sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top of the bread mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbling, about 30 minutes.

Pastoral Planning for Wayne County

A countywide pastoral planning team for Wayne County has been established at the direction of Bishop Matano with the goal of ensuring that the Church's mission of Sacrament, Word, Worship, Community, and Service continues in a vibrant way under the constraints of priest availability, demographics, and financial resources

To follow the council's progress through this process, use the link below to reach the Wayne County Pastoral Planning Information on the Diocese website:
