The Worship Commission touches most every part of our Parish Family. The Commission meets the 2nd Monday of the month in the main office at 7:00 p.m. to plan and discuss the liturgies. Volunteers are more than welcome to participate in all aspects of the Liturgy. Contact Deacon Mike Lang at [email protected] or the main office at 586-777-7543 x100 if you would like to volunteer. The requirement for all volunteers is that the person be in good standing with the church and will include some training.
