MCREST 2023 – June 4 – 11

This year, our church will be supporting MCREST at the shelter in Mt. Clemens that houses women and children.  SS. John and Paul has supported MCREST since 2007 by providing shelter, food and love to our guests.  While we won’t be housing guests at our location, we still have an opportunity to support the homeless in Macomb County and we need your help.

Volunteers are needed to bake, serve dinner at the shelter, and deliver food to the shelter.

Donations (collection bins located in the Gathering Area)

  • Monetary donations will help our church support MCREST by providing bus tickets for their guests
  • Laundry pods
  • Dryer sheets
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Diapers (any size, including swimmers)
  • Diaper wipes

Veterans Recognition

Saints John and Paul Church would like to establish a database of all of our veterans: living, deceased, and still serving.  We need your help if you are a veteran or a loved one of a veteran that was a member of SSJP Parish.  Steve Krajewski (user) has been asked to take on this project and he has embraced it.  To complete this project, we need a military photo (a current or late photo), any awards/decorations received, and a brief summary of your military experience.  The information needed can be given to the parish office or Steve Krajewski.  The information can also be emailed to Steve:

His cell phone number is (586) 453-6388.

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!
