St. Raymond - Our Lady of Good Counsel

Who We Are

A Catholic Church with a faithfilled purpose and message!

A welcoming, diversed community of people in the northeast part of Detroit. Come visit us and become a member of a vibrant faith filled Church. Among other things, the Church has a very strong out-reach program to the community, making available to our neighbors many services.

The Church merged with Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in June of 2011. We are now a new combined Church.

Our Services

Service Times

  • 10:30am - Catholic Mass with choir (everyother week) and donut social following the service.
  • 04:00pm - Catholic Mass. A earlier time for older members.

What to Expect

What are services like?
Are approximately hour to hour and half long. The pastor is vibrant and speaks from the heart. We try to incorporate all styles of music. There are 2 services on a weekend, one on Saturday at 4 pm and Sunday at 10:30 am. After the Sunday service we have a donut/coffee/juice gathering in the Church for everyone to gather and continue the celebration.

What is the community like?
We are a very open and caring Church. Excepting everyone, not matter what. For we are all God's children. Our members care for each other and support one another in times of need.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All faiths are welcome to experience the Catholic Mass. It is a beautiful and moving celebration of thanksgiving of God's love for us shared through his Life, Death, and Resurrection!
