Adoration Chapel News:

Thank you for our volunteer substitutes who step in at the last minute to cover blank hours. We wish to remind our adorers to call as soon as you know you cannot make your holy hour. It is sometimes difficult to find a substitute at the last minute. Volunteers are always welcome to take a permanent hour.  Ideally we should have 2 people for every hour. Please help us keep the chapel open by signing up for an hour.. 

Please fill out this form to sit with Our Lord

We need Volunteers for August 15th in all areas. We especially need more help in the Kitchen with the Italian Dinner and Grotto Lunch Bar. We also need young people to keep the gym clean during the dinner and an Adult to watch over our young volunteers. Please fill one out and turn in to the rectory or Sunday Collections located at the side entrances in the church. This will help us schedule enough workers for our Feast Day Celebrations.

August 15th Volunteers Please help us make sure we have enough volunteers. If you have not heard from your captain regarding the positions you worked last year please fill out a form at the side table to let us know if you will work the same area you had last year. We need help with Italian Dinner, Grotto Lunch Bar and the Bake Sale. We also need volunteers outdoors for set up tents and chairs and with parking. Sign up sheets are on the side tables of the church.

Wanted Bakers for August 15th Bake Sale Bakers prepare your kitchens now so that we can have enough Home Baked Goods to sell during the Feast Day Bake Sale. Tammy Bertollini is our new captain for the Bake Sale this year and she needs your contributions and help to obtain baked goods and also to run the sale on the Feast Day. Please fill out the Volunteer flyers located at the side tables of the church and let us know if you can help!

It is time to start bringing in your used religious items for the August 15th sale. Please pass the word to friend and relatives. We take statues, pictures, crucifixes, books, and miscellaneous items. Your donations can be dropped off at the gift shop. For more information, contact Sue Allasio at 313-881-7141.

We are in need of Lectors for the 4:00 p.m. Saturday Mass and the Noon Sunday Mass. We would like to see some of the younger men of the parish volunteer. Normally we would have 4 men for these masses so that it would only be a once a month commitment. Call the rectory to volunteer.
