On Easter Sunday, April 1st, the St. Mary’s community will prepare and serve dinner at Crossroads Soup Kitchen in downtown Detroit. <crossroadsofmichigan.org> This event is a great way to share in and celebrate the love of the Easter season with 1,000 Detroit community members and other St. Mary parishioners!

If you would like to volunteer or have any question, please e-mail Kathie CrossroadsEaster@umich.edu with your preferred shift, whether you need a ride to Detroit or if you have a car and can take additional people you. If you do not have e-mail, please give the above information and your phone number to the parish office.

We need Easter basket components and lots of candy!Many children are guests at our Easter meal. Help us give each of them an Easter basket as a special gift from St. Mary! Please donate filled Easter baskets or basket making components (baskets, Easter grass-preferably paper, crayons, chocolate bunnies, ‘good for you’ snacks, toiletries, etc.).

In addition to Easter baskets, each meal comes with a small bag of Easter candy. We would greatly appreciate candy donations—mini/fun size wrapped candies are best. Unwrapped candy cannot be used. Please take your Easter basket and candy donations to the parish office by Monday, March 27th.

Make a donation.

Your financial support of this communal meal with our brothers and sisters in Detroit is what makes it happen. Please make checks payable to: St. Mary Student Parish and write “Crossroads Easter Meal” on the memo line.  You can also donate on the St. Mary’s website.  Thank you, as always, for your tremendous generosity.
