St. Mary provides supplies, meals and volunteers for a full week twice per year at the IHN/Alpha House Shelter for families. We generally serve one week in the fall and one in the winter/early spring. Volunteers are needed to make meals and play with the children.
Crossroads Easter Meal
On Easter Sunday, the St. Mary’s community prepares and serves dinner at Crossroads Soup Kitchen in downtown Detroit. 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! There are many ways to get involved including volunteering, donating Easter basket supplies, or making a monetary donation. For more information, contact Kathie Wolney (CrossroadsEaster@umich.edu).

Hill House Sunday Meals
St. Mary parishioners continue their ministry to the homeless by cooking quarterly for the Sunday night community meals at Hill House on Stone School road. Volunteers are needed to contribute to the meal, cook, and deliver the meals for up to 60 individuals from the homeless community. For more information or to volunteer, contact Erin Telemaco.
