Have you considered the Annulment Process, but just never found the right time to pursue it? Or thought the process would be too hard to do? Perhaps this is the right time. Sr. Noreen O’Connell has helped many, many people prepare and submit their annulment paperwork. She will meet with you one hour a week for about 4-5 weeks until all the paperwork is completed and ready to be submitted to the tribunal. It is not an easy process and you have probably heard how difficult it is to do. But, with Sr. Noreen’s help she will guide you through all the steps. With this guidance, the process is much less complicated and the rewards are many, especially the healing that takes place. If interested, call her at 586-755- 6011 to set up your first appointment.
“I look forward to helping you”,
Sr. Noreen O’Connell, O.P.

The Worship Commission promotes and strengthens the continuing liturgical renewal of the Second Vatican Council. The Worship commission promotes ongoing education, planning, and evaluation in the areas of the liturgy. The Commission is also involved with liturgical celebrations and is the liaison for relations with other Christian and non-Christian churches and religious bodies.
The Worship Commission collaborates with the other parish Commissions and the Parish Pastoral Council, and the Office of Christian Worship. It develops and establishes objectives to realize and accomplish parish and Archdiocesan goals and ecclesiastical norms in the area of liturgy and parish worship. The Commission proposes and submits its priorities and budget to the Parish Pastoral Council and develops and oversees the evaluation of its own work as well as that of Parish liturgical life.
The Bereavement Ministry is looking for volunteers
Parishioners, would you consider becoming a member of our Bereavement Ministry? We visit the funeral home or 'in state' at Church to offer our condolences to the family. Thereafter, a letter and reflection are sent to the family. If the answer is yes, please contact 'Christian Service' at (586)264-7515. Thank you.
Looking for a place to be of service and help to our Parish community? Please consider becoming a Parish Usher. Everyone is welcome! For more Information, please come to our Bi-monthly meeting, or see the Parish Bulletin for contact information.

If you are experiencing a difficult time in your life, you may want to have a Stephen Minister assigned to you. Their goal is to listen to the thoughts and feelings of their care receiver for as long as is needed. They usually meet for about an hour a week and continue for as many weeks as the care receiver and Stephen Minister feel is necessary. It simply feels good when someone takes the time to listen to you. See the bulletin for contact information.
Handbell Choir: Mondays,
6:30 p.m. in Church. They minister at various Masses throughout the year.

We have decided to change the name of our program to Funeral Brunch. Different egg or breakfast casseroles are being considered for the meal, as well as, breakfast meats,
fruits, bagels, coffee cakes and other brunch items. Making these changes will make the meal more ‘ time appropriate’ and will also allow us to decrease the cost for the families.
For this program to be successful, we will need many volunteers. Both men and women are welcome to help. Volunteers will be needed to provide some food items, to work at the brunch (setting tables, prepping food, serving food and cleaning up after the meal) and to be a team leader at the brunch. If you can help with this ministry of serving the grieving, please fill out the short form below and return it to the parish office or there will be a box in church next week. Even if you had helped with this ministry or turned in a form in the past, please fill out the form so that we know that you still want to serve. Thank you in advance for your support.
