Vicariate Representative
 We are in need of a person to represent St. Mary’s parish at the Pontiac Area Vicariate  monthly meeting.  This is a very important position. All ten parishes in this Vicariate are in attendance to share pertinent information and events at their home parish.  Meetings take place the first Tuesday of the month at St. Damien of Molokai Parish in Pontiac . You would then alternate attending St. Mary’s Parish Council meeting with the other Vicariate Rep held monthly on the third Saturday morning. Please prayerfully consider.

Parish Council At-Large Member
The Parish council is seeking an jAt-Large member beginning in September 2018. The At-Large member would attend parish council meetings and is welcome to join a commission. The time commitment is to attend a meeting one Saturday morning each month.

Prayers of the Faithful Coordinator
St. Mary’s is looking for someone to lead our Prayers of the Faithful writers. The advantage of being a coordinator of the Prayers of the Faithful is, it is something you can do from home.  There are no meetings that are  mandatory.

The biggest responsibility is publishing the schedule once a year in November before the Advent season begins and distributing it via email. A spreadsheet for the schedule with all of the movable feasts through 2021 has already been developed. The only thing to be done is to fill in the Sundays of Ordinary Time.  The USCCB does not publish the next Liturgical Year until the Fall, so it needs to be collected from the website and filled in. It takes about an hour to do. All materials are provided.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Lisa at 248-243-0260 or Email

St. Mary’s Skills Inventory gives you the opportunity to tell us what skills you have and would be willing to share on an as needed basis.  When a need for that skill arises, you will be invited to share it with your faith community.  There are no long term commitments and you are never obligated to say yes.  It is an invitation that gives you the opportunity to get involved in your parish, to meet other parishioners, and to learn a little bit more about St. Mary of the Hills.  Please click on “Skills Inventory” to fill out electronically.  Hard copies can be found in the church narthex and can be dropped off in the parish office once filled out.

If you currently are a volunteer in one of our ministries and your email has changed, please let me know.
