Prayer & Fasting Sign Up

Our mission is to form a community of Spirit-filled, missionary disciples of Jesus. As a parish, we want to come together in our prayer and fasting for the intention of this mission. In order to do this, we are inviting everyone to sign up for a Friday in the months ahead to pray for the advancement of this mission in specific ways at the various levels in our local Church:

  • At a diocesan level, for the Realign Resources to Mission Committee;
  • At a parish level, for the transformation of our parish into a community of Spirit-filled, missionary disciples of Jesus;
  • At an individual level, for leaders to be raised up in the Church, particularly in priestly and religious vocations in our parish.

Please help us to pray for these intentions by signing up for a date on the sign up here.

Help with Adoration Hours


There are a few hours on our Eucharistic Adoration schedule that need 1 or more committed adorers. If you are able to commit to one of the following hours for the foreseeable future, please contact Jess Jenkins at [email protected] Your support and prayers are greatly appreciated!

Tuesday: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Important Construction Notice

Dear Parishioners,

As you might have noticed, there is a major water main replacement project happening on W. Cross Street. The City of Ypsilanti has notified us that starting Tuesday, June 15th through Wednesday, June 23rd, the Hamilton St. and W. Cross St. intersection will be closed. This will cause a significant impact on traffic and routes into and out of our parking lot. Detour signs will be posted but please allow extra time (and patience!) when coming to Mass. On Wednesday, June 16th, all water will be shut off for the day to our parish. We will still have the 8:00 a.m. Mass time but note that restrooms will be closed that day. The office will not be open and we will not have the regularly scheduled Wednesday Eucharistic Adoration on that day (6/16).

Additionally, on Monday and Tuesday, June 28th and 29th, our parking lot will be repaved. We will have to cancel the Tuesday Adoration for that day (6/29) since the lot will not be available for parking.

Please say a prayer that all of this construction can progress as planned and that no additional days will be impacted. Ah, the joys of city life!

Have a wonderful weekend! - Office Staff at SJB
