July Intention for the Family of Parish
Our Mother of Perpetual Help
       That we seek out ways to grow as a family of parishes 
and participate in joint efforts 
to serve the mission and meet the needs of all.

 Possible Action Steps:
   Join and participate in social, educational and spiritual programs offered by each parish in the Family.
   Join parish service groups, such as the OMOPH Men’s organization serving all Parishes.
  Take advantage of all parish volunteer and service opportunities
  Read the bulletins, parish apps and web sites from each Family parish
  Continue to support, join and donate to a cause that helps to serve needs
  i.e., St. Vincent De Paul, Franciscan Food Pantry, etc..
As we approach election season
we received this from the AOD
Please do not leave any elections materials in the church
Churches and other 501 (c) (3) institutions that qualify for tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code are not permitted to be involved in partisan politics, including any expressions of preference, support for, or opposition to any specific candidates or political parties.
Do not endorse or oppose candidates, political parties, or groups of candidates or take any action reasonably construed as endorsement or opposition. (For example, a priest could offer Mass for “all those running for and holding public office” without referencing any candidate(s) or political parties by name.)
Do not authorize distribution of partisan political materials or biased voter education materials (those that support or oppose—or exhibit bias for or against—any candidate or party) on church property, in church publications, or at church activities. 
Do facilitate voter education through the provision of materials only published by the local diocesan bishop, the Michigan Catholic Conference or the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Corewell Health/Farmington Hills on Grand River (the old “Botsford”) is looking Eucharistic Ministers to bring communion to patients.  The biggest need is for Friday-Sunday, usually 10 AM-12PM, but they can be flexible.   Call Chaplain Curt at 947-521-8850 for more information.
Many of you donate regularly and bring items on weekends for the Franciscan Outreach.  We wanted to report to you what your generosity has done!  This is a report for the first 6 months of 2024.  Our guests can come once a month.  The statistics are pretty impressive!  Thank you for your generosity!
