Bill and Betty Zweng

This might look like a cut/paste from other posts and that is because we are so blessed to have these families that contribute beyond what mere words can express. Bill and Betty are active at the school, parish, community and council and continuously make significant contributions and serve as a model of Catholic family values. They are involved in everything you can imagine and more and you will not find a more loving and giving couple anywhere. Thank you, Lord, for this family!

Jake and Leslie Demeulenaere

Jake and Leslie are very active in the church, community and school. The family regularly attends and serve at Mass and all the kids attend the Catholic schools.

One of the students took 5th place which is really good considering the size of the Archdiocese of Detroit!
Thanks be to God!

Paul & Maryann Gallas

Paul joined the Knights of Columbus just over a year ago and it didn't take long for him to rise up and answer the call. He began by becoming the staple altar server at the 8AM Holy Mass and about 6 months later he started serving at funerals. Maryann and her stealthy friends work behind the scenes to beautify the church inside and out. She also has a great talent for decorating and making our events a inviting place to attend. They have been involved in the breakfast for babies and the up coming Tri-District Rally council activities. They model good catholic values and are people you want to get to know. Thank you Lord for sending us these angels!!

Al and Rose Rumball

Al and Rose are very active in the parish life and we are pleased to honor them in this special way for all they contribute to make our world a better place. You'll most likely see them at Holy Mass at Saint Catherine's on Sunday and we're just getting started here. They are the lead for the OLR Against human and sex trafficking ministry and led a fundraiser last September. They maintain the Memorial for the Unborn at the Saint Catherine's Cemetery which was installed by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus. Most recently they were the Managers of the dining room for the Breakfast for Babies fundraiser and the list goes on! Did we forget to mention the bake sale a few weeks ago? Thank you Lord for the gift of this wonderful couple!!
