Feeding Our Friends
We work with a nonprofit organization in Detroit who continues to offer a warm place to sleep, hot breakfast and dinner, spiritual growth opportunities, professional skills training, and social opportunities in the Cass Community. Click here for more information.
This ministry allows those who are homebound to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis, and lets them know that they are still a vital part of our parish. To request visits, contact Peggy Aoun: email@example.com, or: 248-553-4610.
A national organization that works with city governments to identify families in need of assistance with home repair. Parish volunteers team up with the Knights of Columbus and work one Saturday in late April or early May, from 8am to 5pm, doing anything from painting, plumbing, roofing, gardening, laying floors, etc.–whatever is needed to improve the home we are assigned. Funding is provided by donations from the parish, local building supply stores, and Rebuilding Together. Volunteers can sign up here: www.rebuildingtogethersem.org.
St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVDP)
If you or someone you know living within our parish boundaries is in need of food, clothing, emergency funds to help with utility payments or shelter, our secretary will put you in contact with the SVDP team. Team members will meet with you to assess your situation and provide assistance. Click here for more information.
Different SVDP chapters cover area parishes, so help is still available for those who are not within our particular parish boundaries.
Parishioners serve at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, or Coalition on Temporary Shelter (COTS), both in Detroit. Parishioners also serve at St. Christine's in Detroit six times a year. We also accept donations of non-perishable food for St. Christine’s on an on-going basis. Look for the box marked "St. Christine’s" in the church vestibule.
