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.

This Sunday is our Annual Palm Sunday Service. The students of the Church School will be processing, and folding palm crosses. Fun activities will follow in the Parish Hall. Please have your child or grandchild in the Church by 10:00 am.

April 19th is Good Friday, and it has been the custom at St. Michaelís to have a family Service of the Stations of the Cross. Marblehead Schools are still on April Vacation for that Friday. This moving service begins at 12:00 Noon and is always followed by a lite lunch. Iím asking a few parents/grandparents to bring in some plates for this lite lunch. Please let me know if youíre interested in bringing a plate!
