Office Hours

Christian Service Hours: Every Tuesday: 10:30 AM - 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.
