We at St. Damien of Molokai are a vibrant parish lived out in a multicultural experience. Following the example of our humble patron, we embrace the challenge to harmonize the diversity within our faith community in order to draw closer to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
The Archdiocese of Detroit stands with the brave survivors who seek to bring the crime of sexual abuse by clergy and other Church representatives into the light, where those who sinned are confronted and those who were harmed can find healing.
To those harmed by the actions and inaction of Church leaders: It is inexcusable and we are sorry.
With the hope of healing and in response to questions from members of our faith community, we created this site to consolidate and share our ongoing efforts to protect all those in our care.

In regard to two pieces of recent news, (i) reports of abusive and criminal activity of the former Cardinal Archbishop of Washington, DC, and the subsequent negligent response towards his actions, and (ii) the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report that is a more detailed and regional finding of what was reported in the nation-wide John Jay Report of 2002, we stand in solidarity with victims demanding justice. We commit ourselves to lasting change and affirm what both Archbishop Vigneron and Pope Francis have said, “it takes a culture.” Visit our page for more information.
