Welcome to our Parish!

35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  (Mark 8:35-36)



If you are looking for a spiritual home, please know you are always welcome to be a part of our Parish Family.  – Father Frank

Parish Building Renovation Project 

Fr. Frank spoke to the Eparchy financial director to get a loan directly from the Eparchy to cover the repairs, which would be at a lower interest rate. Repairs on the chimney will begin within a week. Please consider increasing your monthly donation by $30.00 or more to go towards the renovation project.

In the coming days we will be posting a link to a Go Fund Me page for donations. 

Renovation Fund Total $28,997.00  est.

24 Some give freely, yet grow all the richer;
    others withhold what is due, and only suffer want.
25 A generous person will be enriched,
    and one who gives water will get water. (Proverbs 11:24-25)

The Church Renovation Fund envelopes  can be used for donations specifically intended toward the Renovation Project, or simply put the offering in an envelope marked Renovation Fund. Thank you for your generosity.

St. Michael the Archangel, 
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.


The Lord is near, do not be anxious about anything. Instead, pray about everything. (Philippians: 4:5-6)
