CSA Appeal 2022 – Fuel the Mission

Our 2022 Catholic Services Appeal is underway at SS. John and Paul Parish and we greatly appreciate your past support. CSA funds will help fund our current operating deficit and infrastructure projects planned for 2022-2023. Please prayerfully consider your gift.  The Archdiocese of  Detroit has mailed campaign information to parishioner households and are using a Minnesota company to process gifts.  However, you can drop your gift/pledge at the parish office.  

Please make checks out to “Archdiocese of Detroit” with CSA #429 in the memo line.  

Thank you for your generosity!

Blood Drive July 31

There is no substitute for blood, organs, tissue, or bone marrow. They are precious. They are perishable. And the need for them is vital.  Any one of us might need a transfusion, at any time. We rely on one another to meet that need.

Schedule your appointment:

COVID Vaccine Deferral: There is a 48 hour deferral (2 days) for those who received the COVID vaccine/ boosters. It’s 48 hours post vaccine before you are eligible to donate blood.  It’s the same whether it’s the first or second dose, both require the 48 hour waiting period.

Walk-ins welcomed and appointments honored
