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 below) 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 in the parish calendar. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, and as determined by the Archdiocese of Detroit, all public Masses, as well as in-person faith formation programs and other parish events and meetings, are suspended until further notice, including all Holy Week celebrations. Accordingly, any such parish event or meeting shown on the parish calendar will either be converted to a tele/video conference or postponed. Participants will be informed of such changes. If you have a private need, such as to arrange for a baptism, marriage, anointing of the sick, funeral or individual confession, please contact the Parish Office.
