My Dear Fellow Parishioners:

Today is the Seventh Sunday of Easter, the final Sunday before the Feast of Pentecost, the ‘Birthday of the Church.’  As we prepare to receive the Holy Spirit into our lives once again, may we be mindful of his presence with us always.  He is our helper and our guide, the gift left with us by Jesus to be an ever-present advocate  in good times and in bad. Please make a special effort to join with us next Sunday at 9:00 a.m. to celebrate this great and solemn feast!

  This coming week, St. Michael will be open daily except Thursday, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

  It’s time to start planning for our Fall Festival and Raffle. The Festival Committee is discussing alternatives to a full-scale fair.  More information will be forthcoming so please stay tuned.  Our Annual Raffle will go on as scheduled.  If you are interested in helping with any of the raffle logistics, please call the church office.

  Just a reminder, we are still awaiting direction from the Archbishop regarding church opening. All daily and weekend Masses with congregations and Confessions are still suspended indefinitely.  If you wish to speak with Father, please call the church office.  Also, all requested Masses are being offered privately by Father Joy .

  Many have been joining us via our website for the celebration of Sunday Masses, from our own church!  Go to our website:  www.saintmichaelsonline.org and click the link found on our YouTube page.

  First Communion and Confirmation classes: please see the directives posted in today’s bulletin. If you have questions, please call the church office.

  Statements of Contributions for 2019 can still be requested by calling the church office. Also, thanks to all who are continuing to support our parish on a regular basis, and to those who have continued to sign up and give via  E-Giving.  We now have 87 active accounts.  God bless you for your generosity!

  Please take seriously all recommended precautions as this crisis continues, trusting the health officials advice,  Also, please remember in your prayers the sick and those who have died due to this illness.  

May God and Saint Michael bless us always!
