Grief Recovery:

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one, sometimes sharing your grief with others who have walked in the same footsteps can ease the pain.

Grief Recovery meets once a week for six weeks.

Please call the parish office at St. Mary's to inquire about a future program.

Did You Know?

Men's Fellowship: Meeting on Thursdays

When: Every Thursday morning beginning at 8:30 am to pray with the up coming Readings for Sunday.  

Where: St. Mary's Center.

Purpose: The focus is unpacking Sundays Readings. We then move to round table discussion, Answering questions about our faith. Bring your questions. Bible knowledge not required at all, we all learn from each other. No commitment, come and go as your schedule permits. We usually have coffee and donuts. Try it, you might like it.

We also listen to Bishop Barron's homily for the Sunday readings and have discussion.

All men of the parish are welcome to attend.  Any new comers are always appreciated. 

Coffee and Donuts with all the fixings will take place on the second Sunday of the month at St. Mary’s Center following the 8:30 AM Mass.

Coffee, Tea, Milk, Juice, donuts, homemade breakfast Breads and more!

We try not to be a fund raising group but we do activities for the parish and community. Three times a year we walk 2 miles on M46 and pick-up the trash. Our coffee and donuts on the second Sunday of each month will resume as soon as we are cleared by the authorities, to do so. The ladies of the parish join us in sponsoring an all parish meal such as the steak dinner this past August.

Praying With Scripture


Perhaps this is the year you would like to join us on Thursday to spend some time in prayer reflecting on Scripture. It’s hard to believe that this begins our 9th year. This gathering of men and women from all parts of Ave Maria Parish meet in parishioners’ homes and pray with the Scripture readings for the coming Sunday. We find it enriches our experience of the Liturgy of the Word at Mass on Sunday and offers a rich experience of being “A House Church,” much like those of the early Christians.

Please consider joining us. We are always delighted to see new faces.

When: Thursdays at 2:00 pm 

Where: Please call for this week’s location….You’ll receive a schedule at the first meeting you attend if you decide to continue.

For more information or directions, please call Kathleen Marschall at 810-622-9904.

Hope you can join us for an enriching afternoon with the Word of the Lord!
