GriefShare is a unique offering at Michael's Place that implements video lessons and testimonials, journaling exercises and a support group component, while incorporating faith into the curriculum.

The GriefShare program is held in person at Michael's Place.

This 13-week program is offered weekly on Wednesdays, 1:00-3:00pm.

The next series begins September 8th, 2021.

Space is limited and registration is required.  There is a $20 cost to cover the workbook, but funds are available to offset that cost for anyone interested.

Contact Michael's Place at 231-947-6453 or with any questions OR go to to find a group.



Would you like to be part of a ministry that provides valuable support to families who have just experienced the loss of a loved one?

The Funeral Luncheon Ministry is comprised of parishioners

who wish to give support to the families who have lost a loved one by providing a dish or serving at our funeral luncheons.

A light luncheon is provided for family and friends of a deceased registered parishioner following the funeral service at church.

Those who have benefited from this ministry of compassion and healing have spoken of how nice it is to be able to gather with loved ones at a time of loss. This ministry is provided for registered and active parishioners.

This ministry is in need of volunteers to join one of our four teams to either provide food, help serve, set up, clean up or be a “caller”.

Please consider joining to experience the gratification of supporting our fellow parishioners at their time of loss.
