Staff Member: Mike Ashby
Born on the lower east side of Detroit, I am a cradle Catholic who attended Catholic grade and high school. Graduating from St. Ambrose much after their football hay days. So what qualifies me to be here: I was very fortunate to spend a combined 30 years in the corporate environment and as a franchise owner/operator. Additionally, over the last six years much of my time was spent volunteering at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish, where Fr. Michael and I first met. Over that time I became immersed in what being involved in parish life was all about. Having the opportunity to be part of and lead many teams, groups and ministries both at the parish and vicariate level strengthened not only my faith, but also showed me where God was truly leading me. I feel as though our Loving Lord has called me to this parish because of my heartfelt dedication to Parish life.
In turn, this allows me to assist Fr. Michael granting him more time to sanctify, teach and minister to the flock at St. Louise.
