Mercy In Action

In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis encourages each of us to serve people who need help. Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) is collaborating with parishes, schools, and others to coordinate a regional Day of Service on Saturday October 1, 2016 for people from all of our congregations to come together for prayer, service, and fellowship to be Jesus to others.

For more information please contact Kim Houseman by phone (248) 689-8380 or by email.

Forgotten Harvest

 All around you in your community – doing God’s work!

Two additional acres at Forgotten Harvest Farms were planted with “nutrient-rich” crops such as kale and collards for the Flint families.  They expect to harvest 30,000 pounds of produce on that acreage.  Flint families also will receive over 1,150 pots with seeded kale, collards, spinach, and instructions so that they will be able to grow produce and snip plants throughout the season to help combat the potential effects of lead in the water.

Support Forgotten Harvest; they are taking special care of our people!

Would you like to be a Martha/Simon Minister?

We help in an emergency, or on a temporary basis, by preparing and delivering a meal for a family or senior parishioner;  Light housekeeping and errands; grocery shopping, prescription pick up

are areas in need of volunteers. Sometimes parishioners need a ride to Mass.

I have a difficult time finding volunteers for this temporary on call ministry.

If you would like to be put on my “short list” please contact kim.
