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.
