Our History


With the guidance of the Together In Faith process and the blessing of The Most Reverend Allen Vigneron, Archbishop of Detroit, over a 5 year period, the catholic communities of Ascension, St Clement, St Dorothy & St. Leonard of Port Maurice were clustered, merged and then officially became the Catholic Community of   ST MARY, OUR LADY QUEEN OF FAMILIES on June 30, 2012.

Each individual parish had its own unique history,so it is essential that St Mary take each parishes uniqueness and now begin to record our own history.
