We ask that in the event of the death of a loved one that you contact the Funeral Home of your choice. All the arrangements will then be made with the church through the Funeral Home for any service(s).
We will try to accommodate you with the day and time of services you would like but that will depend upon the availability of the church. If you are not using the services provided by a Funeral Home, please contact the parish directly at 586-781-4901
St. Kieran sponsors a peer support group in collaboration with Widowed Friends, a Archdiocesan affiliated bereavement group that is facilitated by bereavement ministers, who have also lost loved ones, and have received training to effectively and sensitively facilitate the group. The group experience is a 6-week process, and is offered twice a year (fall and spring). Please call 586-781--4901
Ministry to the Sick and Homebound
Jesus spent much of his time on Earth ministering to and comforting people struggling with illness or injury. Here at St. Kieran, we follow in his footsteps by reaching out to the sick and injured in two ways: (1) anointing those who are ill and (2) bringing the Eucharist to people who are homebound, in nursing homes, or in the hospital.
Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament that is offered to those who are seriously ill, dying, have grown weak under the burden of years or are facing surgery or hospitalization. It is celebrated at St. Kieran twice a year or by appointment. Arrangements can be made for the anointing of a homebound parishioner at any time. Please remember that this sacrament should be celebrated before your loved one is actively dying.
Please call the Parish Office at 586-781-4901
Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick
Celebrating the Eucharist is at the very heart of our faith. However, because of illness or injury, many of our fellow Catholics in our area cannot join in the celebration. To ensure that these community members stay connected to us, St. Kieran sponsors the Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick through which Eucharistic ministers bring communion to individual homes, These volunteers are a wonderful volunteers that work quietly, diligently, and lovingly to bring our Lord to those who could not otherwise receive communion.
Please contact us if you or a loved one would like to have a Eucharistic Minister visit you
