The St. Genevieve-St. Maurice Lenten Fish Fry Dinners are a popular community event, providing an opportunity for parish and neighborhood families to share a meal and fellowship. This year the work crew has been reorganized, allowing the volunteer base to be the St. Genevieve-St. Maurice Parish as a whole.
The help of each and every parish organization and parishioner is needed to make this event a success-please take a moment to choose a date and time to lend a helping hand – your efforts are sincerely appreciated! High school students needing community service hours are welcome!
Everyone can bring a friend!
Call, email or return your schedule to the parish office, school or religious ed office. Thank you for your generosity!
If you are available to volunteer, please complete the information below and drop it in the collection basket on Sunday, or email us at email@example.com to let us know how you can help.
Please turn in your project reports as you complete your projects. If you have not already submitted your Saint Report, please do so.

We are in the process of updating our annual Guide Book & Directory for the parish.
Here is your chance to update your record:
Have you changed your phone number? Have you moved? Are you preparing to move soon? Are all of your children included in your membership record? Are all of your children still at home?
If you have not already informed the parish office about changes in your record, please let us know so that the information in the Guide Book & Directory is correct.
The Guide Book & Directory is being provided at no cost to our parish and is again being subsidized by local businesses that advertise in it.
Recent survey results by Guide Book Publishing show that 92.1% of families would rather patronize a Guide Book & Directory advertiser over a non-advertiser—it will pay to advertise in our updated Guide Book & Directory. If you own or manage a business and would like to find out about advertising in our book, please contact the parish office @ 734-422-1763
Our Christmas Giving Tree is located in the back of the Church (Holy Family Side). Instead of leaving a wrapped Christmas Gift we are asking you to make a donation of money or gift card. Please know that your contribution will help to provide what is most needed throughout the year for our Livonia neighbors-in-need who come to St. Genevieve-St. Maurice Parish. After you have placed your donation in the box on the stand, hang an ornament on the tree.

Because of our continual support of The Changing Lives Together initiative, we are now able to begin the renovation of our former convent: we begin with replacing the roof. As you recall, it is our Changing Lives Together money that supports the total renovation of our Parish Center. Know that if each of us remains faithful to our pledge, there is enough money for the total Renovation. When sufficient funds are on hand, we will move to the next phase of renovation.
