 DETROIT, MI
Father Paul Albert and the faithful members of our inner city parish invite you to prayerfully participate in our Capital Campaign , “Neighborhood renewal: love your neighbor as yourself.”

Through your tax deductible gift or pledge in ongoing support you will be helping us to continue developing our SW Detroit neighborhood Community Center as a place of hospitality to strangers, where we serve our neighbors in need with love, respect, and dignity, as we would serve our Lord.

Our current ministries and programs residing at our parish campus include:

Orthodox Detroit Outreach: Helping to provide for the faithful in the Greater Detroit area an opportunity to serve the poor.


Detroit Kitchen Connect: Providing opportunity for chef entrepreneurs; in affiliation with Eastern
Market.

Head Start Program: Serving our neighborhood youth as they prepare to enter school.

FoodLab Detroit: provides young Detroiters a career path in food-related industries.

Detroit Food Academy:   We work with local educators, chefs, and business owners to inspire young Detroiters (ages 13-24) through self-directed entrepreneurial experiences rooted in food-- experiences which open doors, create connections, and spark confidence.

Keep Growing Detroit: A city-wide Urban Agriculture Network has a hub at our Center for education and distribution to local community gardeners.

Zoe for Life: provides guidance and help for pregnant women.

Jardín de los Santos (Garden of the Saints): Our community garden, which provides recreation and food for the neighborhood.

The following campaign priorities will help us to better fulfill our mission of neighborhood ministry and renewal    

Facility Improvements
Community Center Flooring & Kitchen upgrades
$20,000

HVAC& plumbing upgrades
$20,000

Facility repairs and upgrades
$10,000

Community Center debt reduction
$30,000

Total Phase I Campaign:

Phase II Campaign
Once these goals are met, we seek to continue to raise additional funds to better provide for future neighborhood ministry:

Community Center Second floor- Classroom/meeting room& facility upgrades, providing additional offices and ministerial services.

Please consider partnering with us today. Your contribution of a secure, monthly, tax-deductable contribution of $25 or more will allow Ss Peter and Paul to continue as a positive force for good in an otherwise troubled city.

“We continually thank God for the generosity of our many volunteers, who together give thousands of volunteer hours each year in loving service to Christ in our neighbors.  We pray that through the generosity of our neighbors in the business community as well as our faithful supporters, this Capital Campaign will provide the ‘AMEN’ of affirmation which will help us continue our mission of blessing, healing and renewal for years to come.”
