In addition to gathering for fellowship, members of these groups

are enthusiastic supporters of ministry, outreach projects and events for the entire parish community.


Men's Fellowship

Here are some thoughts used in our meeting from next Sunday’s readings  (3/24//19). 

The First Reading (Ex 3:1-8a, 13-15) is the familiar story of Moses encountering God in the burning bush. What experience or activity has drawn your attention to a holy place … a place where God spoke to you? How did you react?


MEN’S FELLOWSHIP meets every Saturday morning, 7:30-9:00. Between 10 and 20 men of various ages and experience join together in a classroom for prayer, scripture study and discussion.  You are welcome to attend one time or every week.  No advance registration is necessary.  Call Gerry Connell ( 248.761.2215) for more information.


STAY AT HOME MOMS with young children meet each Tuesday morning from 10:00 -11:00

in one of the classrooms to enjoy fellowship, conversation and prayer.


YOUTH MINISTRY for high school students:  The group meets for activities, service and recreation on its own or together with youth groups from other parishes.  The schedule of meeting dates and times is published in THE SPOTLIGHT and on this web menu page.  For more information call the Youth Minister, Mrs. Elaine Cevera (248 -739 - 0916 0r 248.649.5510,  ext. 105) or email at elaine.cervera@coltroy.org.

Lunch Bunch

The Lunch Bunch members and guests meet at NOON on the third Thursday of the month

for light lunch, conversation and activities.  

Next luncheon:  March 21.

To volunteer to set up or help in the clean up, call Marie Reitzloff, 248.689.4297.


The opportunity for COFFEE AND DONUTS after the 9:30 and 11:00 Sunday Masses is made possible by volunteer families or friends willing to host after one Mass. The cost of the donuts and bagels is covered by the parish.  As a volunteer, your responsibility is to pick up the donuts, arrange them for service, make coffee and clean up afterwards.


Weather permitting, parishioners are invited to gather for COFFEE IN THE GARDEN once a week after 9 AM daily Mass.  Volunteers prepare coffee; anyone may contribute a tasty breakfast treat or simply attend and enjoy the camaraderie. 


Bible and Bagels

Wednesday mornings, 10 - noon, meetings begin with a continental breakfast, followed by instructional video,  then table discussions.  Each series is centered around a designated theme.


Book Club

The Book Club meets on the first Thursday  of each month at 7:00 PM in the social hall. The selected book is usually published in the parish bulletin and on the website.

Next selection: to be announced.


A group of novice and experienced MAH JONG players gather each Monday in the social hall to play the game from noon until 3.  New players always welcome.


Special events for gathering are scheduled throughout the year.
