For those individuals, we would like to begin a Porch Ministry where we are able to have volunteers reach out to the people in need to bring food and supplies to their porch. If you or someone you know in our parish or school community currently could use the support of having a volunteer deliver food and supplies to their porch, please reach out to us or have them reach out to us by calling the Rectory Office at 313-277-3110. If you are interested in volunteering to help those in need please also call the rectory at 313-277-3110.
