​Saint John Vianney Catholic Church

From August 11-18, 2019 SJV will be hosting MCREST, or the Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team!  

MCREST is a cooperative effort between Catholic and non-Catholic faith communities to reach out to the homeless of Macomb County.  The goal of MCREST is to assist the most needy in our midst to lift themselves up and out of the complicated circumstances which have contributed to their poverty:  both economically as well as spiritually.
​All sign-up information is organized by task.  Please select a task area from below.
