Life Matters – LIFT

LIFT helps churches care for those in their congregations who are elderly and terminally or chronically ill. LIFT is Christ-centered compassionate care that is practicalintentionalsustainable, and educational. It’s designed to support the pastoral staff and adapt to a congregation of any size or structure.








We meet Monday through Friday after school  during the school year until 5:30pm. Our goal is to grow character, develop leaders, and provide academic support to those who do not have the resources to access support outside of school. We build community through partnerships with area churches and businesses to communicate to our students that they are cared for and valued.

Prison & Jail Ministry

Prison and Jail Ministry has been offered by the Diocese of Grand Rapids for over 40 years. Currently, the ministry serves 21 correctional facilities throughout our 11 counties. These correctional facilities include jails, prisons and juvenile detention centers. This ministry has over 150 active priests, deacons and volunteers who bring messages of hope to those affected by incarceration within our diocese. They bring these messages of hope through prayer, holy Communion, Bible study and the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).

In addition to our programs within our facilities, Prison and Jail Ministry recently developed a new re-entry outreach ministry, GROW (Guiding Returning Citizens to Our World), for people returning from incarceration. GROW will help break the cycle of recidivism by educating parish communities on the spiritual needs and concerns of returned citizens and their families. GROW helps create welcoming faith communities through building awareness and relationships. Are you interested in joining our ministry? Please contact us at 616-475-1255.
