"Christ In Us"  Serving the needs of others...

Men’s Jean Drive

Only two weeks remain to help your fellow brothers! Flint’s Center for Hope needs men’s gently used jeans, work boots, and small toiletry items to help area men find jobs and homes. A ‘drop-box’ has been set up in our Religious Education hallway. The drive will continue through May 6 with delivery to Center for Hope slated for May 8. Thank you in advance for your help!

Office Hours

Christian Service SCHOOLYEAR Hours: The Christian Service office is open every Tuesday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

Call the parish office at 517-223-8684 and ask for ext. 312 if you need an appointment at a time outside these posted hours. Please remember this is an all-volunteer ministry so it could take a bit of time until we get back with you.

Please let us know if you or someone you know is in need of assistance "before" things get out of hand.

We are here to assist by way of listening, giving direction for assistance and helping in whatever way possible. It is easier to help before we have to deal with shut-off notices or bill collectors.
