Tithing Committee

The Tithing Program at St. Daniel Parish benefits from a long-standing tradition of parishioner generosity. The parish’s tithing amounts are based on 6% of the weekly Sunday collections and the Christmas collection. The Tithing Committee researches charitable agencies and organizations and contributes tithing monies to local, national, and international causes that meet guidelines.

Meals of Ministry

A hot, homemade meal is provided to a person or family when emergency illness or an accident occurs. The ministry provides nurturing, nourishment, and security. Volunteers prepare a ready-to-serve meal and deliver it to their fellow parishioner.

Stitching for Babies

Stitching for Babies is a ministry begun in 1991 by Eileen Gatton when she felt “God tap her on her shoulder.” The group completes layettes with the items they have knitted, crocheted, quilted, and sewn at home during the last two months.

Each layette includes a handmade blanket, sweater sets, outfits, and sleepers. The mission of this dedicated group is to provide love, blessings, and beautiful items for newborn babies and mothers who might have survived struggles and anticipate future struggles in their lives.

This group usually meets bi-monthly on the fourth Thursday of the month at 1:00 p.m.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Compassion and the love of knitting and crocheting are combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, celebration, and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl. The shawl creators begin with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is passed on to someone. Thus, the blessing ripples from person to person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering God.

This group meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m.

Parish volunteers host lunch at the Robert Matchan Nutrition Center in downtown Pontiac on the third Thursdays of each month.

A car pool leaves at 8:45 a.m. from St. Daniel, and returns by 2:00 p.m.

St. Daniel volunteers host dinner and provide overnight staffing at the Baldwin Place of Hope Warming Center in March annually.
