We are so glad you are a member of our parish family!  

There are four things we specifically ask our parish members to do. First, participate at Mass weekly and offer your support, according to your financial ability, using the parish envelopes or direct debit from your bank to ours.

             Second, get involved in something beyond Sunday Liturgy – a committee, a ministry, or an event. Third, take advantage of the opportunities to learn more about our faith through educational experiences. Fourth, recognize our connection to the local Church by making an annual pledge to the Catholic Services Appeal of the Archdiocese of Detroit. The CSA provides many services to our parish that we could not offer on our own.  There are other Archdiocesan-wide collections to benefit local, national and international needs which also require our support.

Finally, be assured that the whole pastoral staff is here to serve your spiritual and personal needs as much as possible.  Contact the parish office with questions or comments.  Together we can labor in the Lord’s vineyard to build our corner of the Kingdom.  Welcome to St. Cyprian!


How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for active members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

Social & Other Groups

All women (18 and older) are invited to become members of the Guild. It is an active group of women serving the parish since 1955, meeting monthly on the first Tuesday of every month in the Social Hall at 6:00 pm  from September through June each year.  Each month, meetings have a program, speaker, theme or event with hospitality and plenty of time for socializing.  The Guild, through its dues and fundraising, supports a variety of charitable works including the Crisis Pregnancy Center, Interim House and Veterans Hospital.  Click here for more information about the Ladies Guild.

The founding principles of the Knights of Columbus are charity, unity and fraternity.  The K of C was formed to render financial aid to members and their families; assistance is offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.  For more information about our local council, click here.

Bible Study Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, we have a group that meets on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve people.
St. Cyprian Crafters
The Crafters meet weekly on Wednesdays from 10:15 to Noon in the St. Cyprian Social Hall. They Knit, Crochet and Sew, and do many other types of crafts and are always willing to try something new.

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions.
