Are you 50 or over? Do you want to socialize, meet new friends, play cards or bingo, hear interesting speakers? If so join the 50+ Club. We meet the First and Third Thursdays of each month at 11:00 AM in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima Church. If you would like more information come to one of our meetings or call 248.545.2310 if you want to get in touch with the 50+ Club.
This is the guy's club which is open to all men age 18 years and up. The men meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM in Bradley Hall at Our Lady of Fatima Church. Fun is always to be had at their meetings. But, while they enjoy a good time they also serve our parish by sponsoring the Annual Parish Picnic, pancake breakfasts throughout the year, Halloween parties for the kids, Christmas parties, Burger, Brats and Beverages Nights, as well as many other events. They are always looking for new members. Call 248.545.2310 to get in touch with the Men's Organization.
If you're a woman who wants to join an organization that is dedicated to helping those less fortunate or in need, spend some time spiritually, and also have the opportunity to get together and socialize then our Women's Society is for you.
There are a variety of events throughout the year. Some events are in cooperation with the Men's Organization like the Halloween Breakfast and Breakfast with St. Nick for the kids. Some are annual events like the Lenten Soup Supper. Other events are more social and fun. The Women's Society also sponsors fund raisers for specific projects for the parish and organizations which help those in need.
The Women's Society meets at 6:30 pm the second Thursday of each month in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima Church.
Society of St. Vincent de Paul Our Mother of Perpetual Help Conference
The fundamental elements of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul are Friendship, Spirituality and Service. It is the aim of all Vincentians (members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul) to continually grow in these area. Membership is open to all individuals who desire to help those in need and want to follow the spirit of the founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam and the Vincentian’s patron and namesake, St. Vincent de Paul.
The Our Mother of Perpetual Help Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference provides critical support to the residents within the boundaries of our parish (Oak Park, Ferndale, and Royal Oak Township). Through their hands-on charitable work they are a vital part of the community, offering food assistance, emergency support and relief services to help enhance the lives of the less fortunate in our area.
The Conference meets at 7:00pm on the first Monday of each month in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima Church.
Monday Morning Prayer Group
We all know there is power in prayer. If you are looking for a way to enhance and expand your prayer life this group is for you. The group meets every Monday Morning at 10:30 am in the Gathering Area at Our Lady of Fatima Church. All are welcome to join them.
DRIVE - Detroit Regional Interfaith Voice for Equity
DRIVE is an interfaith, non-partisan, regional collection of congregations in the Detroit Metropolitan Area (Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties). We believe that faith communities have a role in shaping a healthy, just and equitable region for all people who live here.
Members belong to DRIVE out of a commitment to confront the racial, social, class, geographic and religious barriers that divide us and to choose instead to find proximity and friendship with one another.
The heart and soul of DRIVE is building relationships. We come together regularly - across the region - to get to know one another, to deepen and strengthen relationships and to discover our common interests and shared values. Out of those relationships, we identify and work together on issues that strengthen our region.
Our work seeks to give ordinary citizens a voice at the table where government and business meet to set regional policies and make decisions of local impact.
Join Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish's local core group who meet on the third Wednesday of the month.
