Mercy in Action

  Mercy in Action

In cooperation with Catholic Charities of Southeastern Michigan, Mercy in Action Day of Service brings Catholics and parishes throughout the Archdiocese together to plan activities to help serve people in our communities and those in need.  Activities have included fall clean-up for seniors in our parish, cleaning of city cemeteries, packing care packages for our troops, visiting senior centers, as well as many other activities during October.  We need volunteers to help organize the activities in our vicariate, as well as volunteer in the various activities.

Mercy in Action Day was a huge success on October 14, 2017!

Troops Need Love Too
We packed 250 boxes for the troops, including 9 members of our Military Prayer List!  Donations for the boxes for 2018 will take place June 9/10 in the Gathering Space.

Candy Collection
A candy collection for the Seminarians to pass out candy on Halloween took place.  We collected 35 bags (1200 pieces) of candy.

Coffeehouse Drive
Raised $500 to help defray costs of the coffeehouse which serves intellectually disabled in the Tri-county area.

Save the Date:  Mercy in Action Day will be October 20, 2018!
