Our Mission Statement

Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish is a welcoming and nurturing Catholic community building up the Body of Christ through prayer and service.

Our Vision Statement

Our vision is to be an extraordinary spiritual gathering place where people of all backgrounds and ages are welcome to question and learn, pray, worship, and serve.  In community through prayer and worship we hope to continue to grow together in our understanding and appreciation of God’s love.  We strive to change and improve our lives and the lives of others.

Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 

Today we face so many difficulties. You remind us to reach out and help those in need. Help us understand that our lives belong to others as much as they belong to us. Mary, Model of Christian love, we know we cannot heal every ill or solve every problem. But with God's grace, we intend to do what we can. May we be true witnesses to the world that love for one another really matters. May our daily actions proclaim how fully our lives are modeled after yours, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.

Thank you for your generosity

“God’s mercy can make even the driest land become a garden.”

Clergy Sexual Abuse

Date: February 19, 2019

From: Archdiocese of Detroit Department of Communications

Subject: Detroit Catholic Series on AOD Safe Environments

Detroit Catholic has just published a three-part series of articles about how the Archdiocese of Detroit responds to and works to prevent sexual abuse, as well as how it provides help to victims. We would like to bring these articles to your attention, both for your own information and as a reminder of what resources are available to the faithful in the Archdiocese.

• Independent review, lifelong monitoring of priests part of Archdiocese of Detroit’s response to abuse https://detroitcatholic.com/news/detroit-catholic/independent-review-lifelong-monitoring-of-priests-part-of-archdiocese-of-detroits-response-to-abuse

• Safe environment programs, annual audits help archdiocese prevent abuse https://detroitcatholic.com/news/detroit-catholic/safe-environment-programs-annual-audits-help-archdiocese-prevent-abuse

• For archdiocese’s victim assistance coordinator, helping survivors is a ministry of compassion  https://detroitcatholic.com/news/detroit-catholic/for-archdioceses-victim-assistance-coordinator-helping-survivors-is-a-ministry-of-compassion

Please feel free to share these articles with your staff and parishioners. As a reminder, the archdiocese’s statements, resources and comments from the Archbishop can be found on protect.aod.org, including a brief statement from the Archbishop this weekend regarding the laicization of Theodore McCarrick.

We also would like to draw your attention to a press conference scheduled for Thursday morning, Feb. 21 by Dana Nessel, the Michigan Attorney General, regarding her office’s three ongoing investigations: Michigan State/Larry Nassar, the Flint Water Crisis and the Catholic Church/Clergy Abuse. The Archdiocese of Detroit will monitor the event and will share any reaction or statement at its conclusion.

Finally, please join in prayer for the bishops and all who are meeting later this week in Rome at the Vatican Abuse Summit, that this meeting may represent an important step toward healing and peace for all victims.

 

The Archdiocese of Detroit encourages individuals to report clergy sexual abuse of minors and others – no matter when the abuse occurred. Individuals may contact local law enforcement authorities and/or they may report to the Archdiocese of Detroit by calling the Victim Assistance Coordinator at (866) 343-8055 or by emailing vac@aod.org.

In addition, the Michigan Attorney General’s Office can be contacted at its toll-free reporting hotline at (844) 324-3374 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or by email at aginvestigations@michigan.gov.
 
More information about the Archdiocese’s efforts to address abuse may be found at protect.aod.org.
