About this Episode

Tune in every month as Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron shares his vision for the missionary transformation of the Church in Southeast Michigan and talks about the early fruits of our movement to Unleash the Gospel.
Archbishop Vigneron is joined by hosts Mary Wilkerson, parishioner at St. Michael the Archangel in Livonia and Michael Chamberland, parishioner at Our Lady of Sorrows in Farmington Hills,
The name of the podcast , Eyes on Jesus, comes from the Archbishop's apostolic motto, ASPICIENTES IN IESUM.

The Intercession of Mary 13:48
