Father John Klein ministered in Flint for 18 years, from 1980 to 1998, and loved working at St. Michael Parish and St. Agnes Parish. It was a difficult time in the city’s history, a far cry from the city’s golden years.
“A lot of people were left with no jobs and insufficient education to find employment that paid as well as the factory jobs,” Father John says. “It was just a sad situation for a lot of good people. The presence of the Church at those times was even more important.”
