During his homily on Sunday, April 3, 2022, Bishop Francis Kalabat offered his thoughts on April being declared Chaldean-American month in Michigan.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared April is Chaldean-American month in Michigan. The proclamation recognizes Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Syriacs as a Semitic people indigenous to Mesopotamia. “Collectively, there are nearly half a million Chaldeans/Assyrians/Syriacs in the United States, including about 160,000 in Michigan, the largest concentration in the country,” the proclamation said.SHOW LESS
