Volunteer Opportunities


The St. Mary’s Religious Education Department offers many opportunities to minister to others through education and formation. If you feel that God is calling you to participate in this role of catechesis, or you would like more information on any of our programs, please contact the Religious Education office at 810-329-7801.

Protecting God’s Children:

The Archdiocese of Detroit is committed to providing safe environments and fostering continuous improvement in every organization that sponsors activities and/or provides services to children and youth.   The Archdiocese intends to create communities of informed adults who model appropriate behavior, are vigilant to the warning signs of abuse and take action to prevent abuse and improve safety.   Likewise, the Archdiocese is determined to ensure that facilities, grounds and procedures promote optimal safety.

If you 18 years of age or older and are involved with children of any age in the parish, you MUST complete a background check and attend a Protecting God’s Children Workshop.  (Teen volunteers who are not yet 18 years of age must attend a Called to Serve Workshop in place of the Protecting God’s Children Workshop–contact Maralene Brothers, Youth Ministry Volunteer Coordinator, for more information.)  You can view workshop locations and register for workshops online at
