We have already lined up several new listings that we will be putting up in the coming weeks.


Family Fare Mancelona - Effective immediately, SpartanNash and our family of retail stores are setting aside time twice per week for store guests most at risk of contracting coronavirus (COVID-19), including older adults, pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals.

Reserved hours will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

As we continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic, we remain committed to the well-being and safety of our family of associates, customers and communities, as well as supporting health officials and government leaders to contain the virus. We are enacting these reserved hours to help protect our most vulnerable store guests, and we are asking our other customers to observe these hours for those most at risk in our local communities.

Also available: MyParishApp on your devices - stay in touch with your local parish. Messages, bulletins and announcements are all available through the App.

Shirley's Cafe - is closed. We want to mention that she is (for the time being) using on-hand stock, making homemade loaves of bread and setting them on a table outside her business. Agencies have been picking up the bread and delivering to families in need.  You may help yourself to a loaf if you're in the area. We think this is a very commendable gesture and thought Shirley deserves a shout-out.  If you happen to catch Shirley at the restaurant when you drive by, consider stopping in to purchase a gift card for future use.
