We are a parish within the Archdiocese of Detroit. Having reflected on the "four faces of our parish," St. Peter Claver Catholic Community, chosen by the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, and under the guidance of Mary, resolves that: 1) we will provide more opportunities for deepening prayer life and faith life for youth, young adults, and adults; 2) we will initiate efforts to reach out and re-connect with those individuals and families who have disconnected from the Church; 3) we will collaborate with other faith communities and organizations within our parish to offer ecumenical events/activities (e.g., neighborhood clean-ups, prayer meetings, health fairs); and, 4) we will utilize resources within our parish community to advocate for education and to promote social justice issues.
St. Peter Claver celebrates Eucharist in the Sacred Heart Chapel at Marygrove College (see details on the STAFF/LOCATIONS page) every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and on Holy Days at 6:30 p.m. Times for other Eucharistic celebrations, as well as times and locations for meetings and other events, are included on the PARISH CALENDAR page. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Until further notice, everyone attending Eucharist or any other parish event must wear a face mask. We also encourage bringing hand sanitizer, although we do have hand sanitizer stations. Instructions are provided in the church for maintaining safe, social distancing, as well as for receiving Holy Communion.
Recognizing that some people will be unable to immediately rejoin us for public celebration of the Eucharist, we will stream every Mass live from Marygrove College via Zoom video conference. To join, click on the LIVE MASS button below.

On Pentecost Sunday, May 31, Archbishop Vigneron announced upcoming changes to how parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit will be organized and operate In the future. Details will be developed between now and the beginning of Advent. Father John, as our Pastor and as the Vicar of the Trinity Vicariate, will keep our parish community informed of progress, as well as provide opportunities for Questions and Answers. In the meantime, information can be obtained by referring to the special Archdiocesan website. Just click on the FAMILIES OF PARISHES button below.
Sacramental records are maintained at the Parish Office for sacraments received only at St. Peter Claver (that is, since the merger in November 2005). To obtain such records, contact the Parish Office by phone, or send a message on the CONTACT US page.

Every Tuesday, from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry assists individuals and families in our neighborhoods with food and other essential household needs.
