How Can I Get Involved


The Christian Service Commission promotes programs which strive to address human needs within our parish community and in the broader community. Your time and talent is greatly needed and appreciated. The Christian Service Commission is committed to working to fulfill the mission and vision of Our Mother of Perpetual Help parish through Christian Service and Peace and Justice Activities.  Our goal is to serve the needs of our community and be a welcoming community.  Our committees include:   Immigration and Race, Water Shutoffs, Life Matters and Parish Nurse.  We also sponsor Coffee hour at both of our worship locations on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.  To join one of the committees or help with coffee hours, please email Mary Kovari at [email protected] or call 313-817-4093.  All are welcome. 


The Peace and Justice Committee is sponsoring the "Strangers No Longer Retreat" on Saturday, April 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  This retreat will be a time for prayer, reflection,  community and next steps for immigration support and advocacy.


The Parish Nurse Committee is looking to recruit parish nurses or other medical professionals to offer blood pressure readings the first Sunday of the month at Ferndale Worship Location and the third Sunday of the month at Oak Park Worship Location during Coffee Hour.


The Life Matters Committee is supporting new mothers in need by collecting items for newborns.  Please deposit in the crib at the back of our Ferndale  Worship Location or the Basket at the back of our Oak Park Worship location. All donations will go to Project Hope Pro Life ministries through Catholic Charities
