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.

Sharing Stories, Community Remembrance
On Sun 11/18 during coffee hour, our youth will be interviewing parishioners who signed up to share their stories of growing up. Thank you to all participants! See Eric Fialho with questions or interest.

Christmas Fair is Coming!
Dates for this year's Heart of Christmas Fair have been set and planning is underway. Volunteers are sought and welcomed! The proceeds from the fair benefit the programs and operations at St. Michael's. Please contact co-chairs Jenny Oliveira and Sarah Bates with questions.

Stewardship Pledge Drive
It's that time of the year again! Pledge forms have bee mailed. Please be as generous as you can with your time, talent, and yes, treasure.
