Pastor`s Message

On behalf of St. Michael’s Parish I welcome you to our website.  It gives me great pleasure to know that we are answering the invitation of Jesus to “Go out to all the world and proclaim the Good News (Mk 16:16).”  In the early Church, the message of Jesus was proclaimed by word of mouth and the movement of feet.  In this century, new ways of communicating have been opened to us. We must use every method to bring the Good News to the world.

Our Parish Vision Statement is to be a welcoming Eucharistic community, sharing faith and reaching out to all.  We invite you to gather with us for Eucharist on Sundays. St. Michael’s is an active parish where you will experience many opportunities to grow in your faith and minister to others. Please browse through the website where you will find many ways to become involved, to volunteer and also view our newsletter and the Sunday bulletin.  We hope that you enjoy the website and visit us regularly online.

To the Disciples at St. Michael's - After 44 years of Ordination and into my 72nd year of life; the Bishop has decided to accept my request to retire. While bittersweet, on July 4 I start  a new phase of life and living out the gift of being a Priest in a different way. It has been a truly wonderful priviledge and a gift from God to be the Pastor of St. Michael's. Your new Pastor is Rev. Daniel Bombardier and I know he will serve the community with dedication and thoughtful leadership. I pray you offer him the same gifts you gave me over the past 16 years; the service of being Intentional Disciples for Jesus. Know that I will keep you in prayer and may God always bless you.
