Volunteer Opportunities and Information

Thanks for your service to the parish!  Nothing will make you feel like you are part of the parish community more than volunteering. And there are many opportunities to get involved. Whether it is a onetime event like helping out at the Summer Picnic, or an on-going commitment like being a Welcome Host at Mass there is always a need for dedicated volunteers.  There is always a need for you! 

  • GriefShare Team Member

    Have you experienced the deep grief of a loved one’s death? Have you learned valuable lessons and experienced healing from the hurt?

    Would you like to help others do the same?Griefshare Logo

    If this describes you, please pray about becoming part of St. Edith’s newly forming GriefShare team. Currently, we are looking for both women and men as facilitators. You do not need to be a counselor, teacher, or have a degree. You will not do this alone; we will provide you with the training you need and continued support as you serve those who are facing the pain of grief. The GriefShare program is based on biblical, Christ-centered teaching that uses DVD seminars featuring nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories, followed by small group discussions. You can learn more about the program at If you are interested in this opportunity and want to learn more, or have questions, please contact Patti Kelly at 734-464-1222, ext. 301 or

  • The Wave Project

    Parishioner Dan Gauvin has brought to us a great opportunity to serve/volunteer!  He is part of The Wave Project.  Established in 2018, WAVE Project (Welcoming All Valuing Everyone) is a grassroots nonprofit organization based in Macomb County with volunteer opportunities in the city of Detroit at The Wellness Center – 6309 Mack Avenue, offering the homeless the opportunity to shower.  Due to transportation, accessibility, and other barriers, members of the homeless community often go long periods of time without a shower, and WAVE provides that opportunity via the use of mobile showers.  Click here for more information about the WAVE Project and how you can sign up to volunteer!
