In 2014 St. Michael was one of 13 parishes in the Archdiocese to pilot the “One Faith, One Hope, One Love Campaign.” The goal was set for our parish to raise $600,000. In true St. Michael style we blew that goal out of the water and donated a total of $767,515.10! Thank you to all who generously took part in this campaign.
The Archdiocese promised participating parishes they would receive a percentage of donated money back to help with improvements at the local level. We had designated in 2014 that the money we received from this fund would go toward new pews and carpet in St. Michael Church. It’s now time for us to follow through and replace the carpet and pews in St. Michael Church!
This project is scheduled to begin in late February 2021 and should take approximately 1 month. (more details to come regarding Masses during this time.)
Effective immediately we are offering for sale the old pews in St. Michael Church to our registered parishioners. The form to request a pew is on the Pastoral Region web-site at the link below. There are more details about the process and cost of the pews on the form.
The proceeds from the sale will be used in the ongoing upkeep of the church building.
We thank you all for your cooperation and patience through this period of transition. We know change is usually not easy but are trying our best to make the process as simple and easy as possible.
