Welcome to St. Michael's Parish!
Grace and peace to you. Welcome to the St. Michael’s website and its windows into our parish life. We hope you’ll find what you seek and that after a virtual tour you’ll join us for the real thing. We look forward to your presence among us as we worship and serve God and practice the art of Christian living in fullness of life with thanksgiving.
New Mission Statement
St. Michael's Revitalization Committee has been meeting to formulate the basis of a 2-3 year plan for St. Michael's, and began with recommending to the Vestry a new Mission Statement, which the Vestry adopted during their March meeting. You can read about the origin of this new Mission Statement in the April Messenger newsletter.
St. Michael’s is called to live and proclaim the
love of God.
Draft Parish PlanThe Revitalization Committee developed the basis of a long-term (3-year) plan, which was presented to our parishioners at the Parish Meeting on April 29. The plan was updated following that meeting, and the current Parish Plan can be downloaded here. If you have any comments or suggestions, please be sure to send them to Bevan at email@example.com.
