Catholic Vantage Financial Gets in the Holiday Spirit

What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to help those around you? According to Peter Bagazinski, CEO of Catholic Vantage Financial, that’s the holiday spirit and focus of the credit union’s staff and volunteer board of directors.

On Wed., Nov. 23, Catholic Vantage Financial will offer a one-day special rate for holiday loans, and cashback of up to $400 on financing of autos, boats, motorcycles and campers.

The credit union’s offices, located at 36111 Five Mile Road in Livonia and at 8817 Sheldon Road in Plymouth, will open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday to accommodate early shoppers. Credit union staff will be on hand to open new member accounts, process loan applications and assist with refinancing loans from other financial institutions.

For those unable to come into the branch, members can apply for loans online at for the specially reduced rates, beginning at midnight through 5 p.m. on Nov. 23.

“Thanks to the overwhelming response of our members, this is our fourth year to host [this event],” said Emma Teller, vice president of marketing and business development. “It gives everyone the opportunity to get into the holiday spirit with some extra funds in their pocket.”

In addition, Catholic Vantage Financial is assembling Shoppers Delight Bags to support local businesses during the holiday shopping season. The bags, which will be available in the credit union’s offices on Wednesday, will include maps, flyers and discount coupons from salons and spas, game shops, specialty stores, boutiques, candy makers and service providers, along with specials from the credit union. Everyone is encouraged to stop by early while supplies last.

Teller shared that Catholic Vantage Financial is also collecting donations of gently used winter coats and boots for men and women, along with new warm socks and toiletries to support PBJ Outreach, a mission devoted to serving the homeless and impoverished in the Detroit area. The holiday drive is being held in partnership with Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Plymouth.
