Welcome! How can the Catholic Church serve you?

We are the Catholic Church of the Diocese of Lansing and we are here to serve you. It is our hope to be a source of good news in word and deed. If your needs are spiritual, we welcome the opportunity to share with you the many formation opportunities we have for you and your family. If your needs are basic human needs for you and your family, we are here to share with you the many services we have to offer in a location nearest to you.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
