“How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” And those who heard it said, “Who then can be saved?” But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:24b-27)

Thanks to the Kushner and Hoffman families for their donation of a new Altar Gospel Book for use during the Divine Liturgy and other services. It is donated in memory of Rose Hoffman. We also have a new cadillo (censer) for use in the Divine Liturgy for burning incense. It was purchased by an offering from Lois Brink and family. They offer it in memory of Lois’s husband Harold R. Brink Jr. We thank them for their generosity in memorializing this liturgical item. May the memory of the servants of God, Rose and Harold, be eternal!
Bible Study – Times are Thursday 10:00 AM or Friday 7:00 PM. Online lessons are also available. Note: Cancelled the week of January 26th due to the March for Life in Washington.
Rosary Society – We are always looking for volunteers to lead the praying the Rosary before the Liturgy on Sundays. The foundation of every good work is prayer. Jesus said, “Without me you can do nothing.” Jesus acts in our lives and inspires us to do good largely through an active life of prayer. Just come to church 15-20 minutes before the Liturgy to pray the Rosary out loud for the intention that God would bless our parish, bring about a renewal at Saint Michael’s, and help us meet the challenges ahead according to His will. Rosary booklets are available for everyone.
Charity Fund – We are going to be setting up a fund to help those in need.
For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. (Matthew 25: 36-37)

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)
