Please mark your calendars.
Our host week for Christnet will be January 26 to February 2, 2020.

ChristNet is a seasonal rotating overnight shelter for men, women, and children when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. As a shared ministry of more than fifty Protestant and Catholic churches in the Downriver and Western Wayne County suburbs, the goal of ChristNet is to insure that no one has to be left out in the cold. Guests receive a warm place to stay overnight and three meals, and they may stay for up to thirty days.

We are asking our parishioners, family and friends of all three parishes to help us here at St. André Bessette during our host week as this is a huge undertaking of our Christian Service for our brothers and sisters who need our assistance.

You will not regret it!

Please check your calendars now and try to arrange your schedules so you can give your time and talents for few hours on the days we will be hosting. Sign Up sheets are located at the main entrance of the SAB Church listing the area and times that your help is needed. Please write your name and contact number on the date you are available.
