Made for More Campaign

Curious about our newly launched Made for More campaign? Here is some info!

We all have spiritual gifts from the Lord. Some of us may know exactly what our gifts and talents are, others may have a general idea, and some people may have no clue. As part of our baptism as Catholics, we have a calling to discern what our gifts are and use them in service of others.

One of our staff members was vacationing in Texas and went to St. Austin Church. There she found a wonderful Spiritual Gifts Inventory that calculates what your gifts are based on various questions. She brought it back to the rest of the staff. We love it so much we decided to build a campaign around it, because we are all MADE FOR MORE! 

All our staff members took this survey and were able to find our spiritual gifts, NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! Click here to take the inventory.

You can also watch our Made for More videos HERE, where parishioners and staff discuss their spiritual gifts.

2019 Rainbow Conference

St. Mary’s sent a group of 38 people (adults and youth) to attend the annual CYO Rainbow Convention.  One of the highlights of the weekend was the youth were able to celebrate Mass with the Archbishop of Detroit, which speaks volumes of the value that our area Church puts into our youth. Additionally, the youth had opportunities to pray together, to be inspired by world class speakers, to attend break out sessions with their peers, to perform an area service project, and more. Rainbow, for years, has been an incredible opportunity for the youth of Detroit to gather and grow together.

 

Lent Offering on Prayer – March 28

On Thursday, March 28, 2019, from 7-9 PM, we are happy to be offering a session that just might spruce up your prayer life this Lent!

This two hour gathering is designed to provide you with some inspiration regarding prayer from scripture and with practical ideas for meaningful prayer in your life. Catholic school teachers and religious education volunteers are especially encouraged to attend, as this topic fits within the certification process, but it would be beneficial for anyone, especially during Lent. For more information, please contact Peggy Casing  (248) 243-0251.
