Victory for Special Ministries!
The annual Special Ministries Basketball Fundraiser was a SLAM DUNK! Held on March 9 at the Oceola Community Center, the Special Ministries basketball teams went up against the Livingston County Sheriff's Department and WON...47-38! Thank you to Sheriff Mike Murphy and his staff for being such huge supporters of the program! The Jumpin' Allstars put on amazing half-time show and our DJ/commentator, Ron Johnson was spectacular.

Thank You, Sunrise Rotary!

The event supported three organizations: Torch 180, Reaching Higher, and our very own Livingston County Catholic Charities’ Youth Substance Abuse Program.
The Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Program offers innovative programming and events to educate youth and families about the devastating effects of substance use. It empowers local youth to become leaders in their communities and make a positive impact. Learn about their vital work at

Learning How to Stay Safe
Spotting Scams: A Workshop on Staying Safe From Scams was held on March 14 at the Fowlerville Library. At this free educational workshop, attendees learned about the latest scams, how to avoid them, how to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, and what to do if you have already been scammed. Attended by 15 people, mostly older adults, the sessions were found to be very useful and informative.

Presentations were made by:
  • Detective Kim Leeds, Hamburg Police Department
  • Detective Jason Davis, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office
  • Crystal Hoag, Livingston County Adult Protective Service Supervisor
  • Scott Ehlfeldt, Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan
  • Antwoine Little, PNC Bank

We are thankful for the expertise these presenters brought. Their hands-on experience with moving cases forward within the judicial system, and ability to share real-life stories, was very impactful.
