- There are immediate repairs that must be made to the steeple at St. Joseph Church, and the building is temporarily closed until the repairs are complete. Our Mother of Divine Mercy pastor, Fr. Greg Tokarski, and Finance Council are working with the Archdiocese of Detroit to facilitate the work as soon as possible. We are meeting with engineers and contractors early next week regarding the scope of the project and to discuss bids for the work. As soon as that is done we anticipate the work will begin immediately to secure the structure and repair the damage to the steeple. As more information is available we will share. Thank you and please continue to pray for the health and vitality of our parish.
