From the Rector

St. Michael's Mission is to seek transformation in God's grace by worshipping God in prayer, song, and study; loving and serving our neighbor in and outside our parish Community; and being good stewards of God's creation.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

St. Michael's staff roster

News from the Church Library
Our library collection has some new categories and labels, inspired by the library at Adelynrood. New additions include Monasticism, Pilgrimage, and Women. Please feel free to browse and to borrow. A new addition is a Take a Book, Leave a Book section which includes fiction, works of inspiration, daily meditation, among others.

Michaelmas Celebration & Festival
Join St. Michael's in a joyous celebration of our namesake. We will celebrate the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels on Sun 9/30 at the 8:00 and 10:00 am services. Following the 10:00 am service (weather permitting), the celebration will continue on the Summer Street lawn, with Coffee Hour and a Festival. Please invite friends and neighbors! Sign-up sheets to help set up and take down are posted in the foyer. Please contact Eric Fialho or Karin McCarthy with questions or your interest in helping.

Sunday Servers Needed!
Each Sunday, a number fo people take on extra roles to make our liturgy run smoothly and effectively. These include members of the altar guild who help prepare the church for worship; sextons who open and close the church on Sundays; ushers, who greet and assist people and distribute bulletins; lectors who read lessons; lay Eucharistic ministers; oblation bearers; and hosts/hosetesses of Coffee Hour. Each role is rewarding and fulfilling in its own right. If you would like to help in any of these areas, please speak with Fr. Andrew.

Centering Prayer
Open yourself to a deeper relationship with God and one another. Annette Nicolas will be guiding us each Sunday before Evensong in silent, receptive prayer beginning Sun 10/7 at 4:00 pm in the Chapter Room. No experience is necessary; just bring an open heart. Contact Annette with questions or more information.
