Christian Service Ministries

Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) supports and collaborates with hundreds of Christian service coordinators, parish nurses, and parish-based ministries throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit. CCSEM also supports a ministry for the faithful with disabilities. This regional network provides dozens of services to those with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

More than 200 parishes in southeast Michigan have ministries to serve those in need. Following the example of Christ and inspired by the Holy Spirit, parish-based Christian service coordinators are guided by Catholic Social Teaching to provide services to the faithful and others. Christian service ministries include helping the home-bound receive the Eucharist, operating food pantries, tutoring and literacy education, helping at soup kitchens, and providing emergency utility assistance.
