Catholic Faith Formation Nights

In the hectic quest to excel in this world, it is refreshing to step back, realign your direction, rest your soul, and listen to God’s calling. One weekend in March (Friday through Sunday) each year, the men of Church of the Divine Child gather at St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat Center to retreat, not from this world, but to be better prepared to embrace it. Times of quiet and personal reflection alternate with presentations and prayer activities.
For further information, please call the Rectory Office at 313.277.3110.
Our Lady of Fatima Traveling Statue
In 1969, a special statue of Our Lady of Fatima was blessed at Fatima especially for Divine Child parishioners. If you would like to have this statue in your home, you may do so for one week to receive the many blessings of Our Lady. The statue is present on the main altar in the Church every first Saturday for First Saturday devotions. During May and October, the statue is present in the Divine Child High School Chapel and Divine Child Elementary School. For further information, please call the Rectory Office at 313.277.3110.
Perpetual Adoration Chapel
There is a longstanding tradition in the history of the Church of people coming to spend time adoring the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Perpetual Adoration is ongoing in Church of the Divine Child’s 24-hour/7-day-a-week Chapel. The Blessed Sacrament is in the Chapel every day except Tuesday, when it is in the Church from 9:00 AM until 7:00 PM. Novena then takes place from 7:00 PM until 7:30 PM. For further information, please contact Dina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join the Prayer Team to pray for the priests and the needs of the parish every Tuesday night following the Novena. Many were introduced to praying in intercession as part of the Changing Lives Together Prayer Team. Please join the Prayer Team as they continue to meet and pray together as the Holy Spirit leads. The Prayer Team gathers in the Church for one hour every Tuesday. All are welcome to attend!
Spiritual Book Club
The Spiritual Book Club meets once a month to discuss a particular book. All are welcome to come and join in the discussion – or just listen! For further information, please click here.
One of the finest and most longstanding traditions at Church of the Divine Child is the weekly devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM in the Church. Hundreds make this weekly service in honor of Our Lady, and we are very pleased to make these devotions available. Prayers for the Novena may be found at the back of the Church.
