The workshop is every Thursday night, 7:00-8:30PM, starting Thursday June 4 running through Thursday, July 23. Come have fun and meet new friends while learning how to have conversations of consequence! There are no costs and materials are provided ... just bring your own Bible!

Archdiocesan Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) has begun. Please be sure to pick up your pledge card by the bulletin board. The Archdiocese has set a goal for our parish of $158,945.

The Archdiocese of Detroit states that no CSA dollars have ever been, or ever will be, used to settle claims of any nature against the AOD or to support projects out the AOD, other than certain national collections of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. If we exceed our target, any excess will be returned directly to our parish. If we do not meet the target, the shortfall will be taken from our parish funds. Please prayerfully consider how you can help further the 110 ministries funded by the CSA, and consider making the most generous gift possible given your other financial obligations. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. More information is available at  and brochures are also available in the vestibule. Questions: Suzanne Navarre, (586) 726-6911 ext. 104
