Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
After nearly two years
of diligent and faithful effort, Catholic Charities of Southeast
Michigan (CCSEM) has emerged from a newly-formed
regional human services agency to one poised for growth in providing
help and giving hope to God’s people in the Archdiocese of Detroit.
Now our principal archdiocesan agency for works of mercy, CCSEM last
year assisted more than 15,000 people by sharing Christ’s love
through adoption and foster care services, individual and family counseling,
services for seniors, refugee resettlement, Hispanic outreach, helping
those in crisis circumstances, and numerous other services.
CCSEM is helping our brothers and sisters to move from dependence
to healthy, self-sustained livelihoods. All CCSEM services center on
the dignity of the person and strengthening the family with a commitment
to accompany all through their personal trials. Efforts continue to
connect CCSEM with pastors, parishes, vicariates, church ministries,
and other Catholic charitable organizations to provide collaborative
and coordinated assistance.
The faithful will have
the opportunity on November 22-23 to continue and expand CCSEM’s many works of mercy. On that weekend a special
collection for CCSEM will occur in parishes throughout the Archdiocese
of Detroit to help CCSEM maintain and improve its programs and services.
Those who give of themselves in this way enjoy a spiritual reciprocation
with those being helped, for they receive the privilege of giving of
themselves in the Lord’s name.
Please consider referring a loved one, friend, or neighbor who may
find healing and hope through a CCSEM program or service. They can
call 855-882-2736, visit ccsem.org, or email: email@example.com. In sharing
this information about CCSEM, it is my hope that more will utilize
this wonderful resource. I invite you to learn more by visiting www.aod.org/sharingthelight/CCSEM/.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend Allen H. Vigneron
Archbishop of Detroit
