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.

Stephen Minister Update

Back in October, a group of men and women at our parish began attending classes that would train them to become Stephen Ministers.  This group of caring and compassionate people have generously devoted each Monday evening for the last 20 weeks to learning the skills necessary to become lay care-givers.  They will provide one-on-one, confidential Christian care and support to people facing illness, sadness, loss, fear, pain or loneliness.  Their role is not to solve problems for people but to help them find strength and courage through prayer, trust and support.

Each Stephen Minister has received 50 hours of extensive, structured training before they begin their ministry.  The training focuses on the importance of prayer and listening.  Six people have attended these classes and will be commissioned as Stephen Ministers on May 22nd at the 10:15 Mass.

If you are interested in attending classes and becoming a Stephen Minister, or if you are interested in receiving care from a Stephen Minister, please contact: Kim Houseman at 248-689-8380 Ext. 112 or at gro.a1467320774isats1467320774anats1467320774@name1467320774suohk1467320774. There is no cost and all names are kept confidential.
