Public Masses will resume Tuesday, May 19th. In the interest of safety and to facilitate disinfection of the church between Masses, the schedule will be as follows:
Tuesday and Wednesday at 9am
Saturdays at 5pm
Sundays at 9:30am and 11:30am
Mondays at 7pm
This schedule will remain in effect through September 6th. Although measures have been taken to ensure the safety of those attending, understandably some may wish to remain at home. Please note that all the faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit are dispensed from their Sunday obligation to attend Mass until then. We will be streaming Mass Sundays at 11:30am on Facebook Live.
Guidelines for returning to Mass
Because building capacity is limited:
- Seating in church, max 125 (every other aisle, 3 empty seats between parties)
- Additional seating available in the Social Hall, max 100
- Seating is on a first come, first serve basis
For everyone’s safety, please observe the following:
- Practice social distancing
- Cover your face with a facemask or scarf
- Stay home if you are sick or have been around someone sick
- Stay home if you have any symptoms
Thank you for your cooperation!

Since you can’t return all those beverage cans and bottles you have been accumulating during the quarantine to the store, SS. John and Paul Council 16630, will take them off your hands! The Knights are collecting returnable cans and bottles now through May 17th to benefit Michigan Special Olympics for Adults with developmental disabilities. What a great way to clear out your returnable cans/bottles and donate to a great cause.
There are two ways to donate:
- Place your returnable cans/bottles in a plastic bag and text your address for a porch pickup (Eddie Sachs 586-292-6412 or Chris Chaffee 586-764-4321)
- Drop off returnables at SS. John and Paul. Drive around to the Formation Wing’s west entrance. There are containers to place your returnables in.
