This Week’s Calendar

The parish weekly calendar of events is incorrect in this week’s bulletin, November 29th.  Please click here to see the correct schedule.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

G.R.A.C.E. programs online only

The decision was made to no longer offer in-person GRACE Formation. Our program will be remote from now until further notice. Between the governors announcement, the high number of COVID cases in Macomb county, we felt that it would be irresponsible to continue in person at this time. We will update you if anything changes.

MCREST 2020

Although we can not house MCREST guests this year because of COVID,  we will still be supporting the homeless that they service.    These are the ways that you can help:

  • Donations via a check made out to SS John and Paul with MCREST on the memo line.  Whatever you can do is greatly appreciated.
  • Bakers – to bake items that can be packaged individually.
  • Quarter Drive – for MCREST guests to do their laundry. Please toss quarters in the jar located in Gathering Area.
  • T-shirts and underwear (Men’s sizes M, L, XL and 2X) – Please put in the collection barrel located in the Gathering Area.

Click here to sign up for baking and drivers to deliver meals to MCREST.  Questions, please feel free to contact Donna Michalski or Pennie Grover at ssjpmcrest@gmail.com

 

Catholic Services Appeal 2020

Although the Catholic Services Appeal 2020 is later than normal due to the coronavirus pandemic, a CSA letter and pledge envelope was mailed to registered parishioners. Our parish is already accepting CSA Gifts from donors. You may drop off your check/pledge at our Parish Office or mail to: Archdiocese of Detroit, PO Box 44077, Detroit, MI 48244-9935. Or you may send your pledge via the internet at: www.givecsa.org/

Our Parish Target is $75,640.00, and every dollar over our target stays RIGHT HERE to support our SS. John and Paul programs and activities.  Since we take care of many financial obligations through CSA overages, we ask that each family consider a gift of $400-$500 toward CSA2020.   Thank you and May God Bless You.

Guidelines for Mass

WELCOME BACK!

Public Masses have resumed.   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 face mask 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!
