Parish Library

We are all on a spiritual journey along a path marked by those who have preceded us. Through print, audio and video materials found in the library, we may discover inspiration and direction in the wisdom of popes, scholars, saints and mystics, as well as those contemporary writers who travel with us.


1Location – 
Located in Room 254 in the Parish Center, the library is “self-serve”. Please feel free to come in, browse and borrow material. If the lights are not on, the switch is on the right, just inside the door.

Hours – The library is open whenever there is access to the Parish Center. Please note that Room 254 is a popular meeting room. Before making a special trip to use the library, it is advisable to call the Parish Office to see if the room is available.   (734-761-8606)

Directions for borrowing books or audio-visual materials are posted in the library. You may keep items for 4 weeks. If you want to keep them longer, please renew using the small Renewals notebook or contact us by library email. We do not charge fines, and we depend on borrowers to remember to return their items!
