2017 Sign Up Still going On…

Our “official” volunteer weekend for 2017 has passed.  Some of you are still discerning what you are called to do.  So, we will continue to make the green adult, and white youth volunteer cards available so you can complete and turn in to the office.  We thank all of you who have expressed an interest in serving, whether you are brand new or re-newed!  We will be in touch with you before the end of the year.  We can never give more than we receive when we share with others.

If you have any questions about volunteering  ~ now, or at any time ~ please contact us:

jane@stmichaelsfsd.org  or 361-1600 x205

God bless you and keep you!



There are still openings where you can sign-up for the opportunity to schedule an hour with Our Lord in our Adoration Chapel.  We are also in need of substitutes.  The Chapel is open for 24 hours from Sun. evening at 6pm until Sat. afternoon at 4pm. Questions? Call Anne @361-1600; aburkard1st@gmail.com or fill out a card in the Commons.




Thanks to our awesome Kids Against Hunger crew!!  As you can see, they are the proud packers of 6,696 healthy meals which will be shipped to the hungry of our city and the world.  Each meal is designed specifically to provide maximum nutrition, be easy to ship and prepare—and taste good!  May God bless our volunteers, and those they have served, abundantly!

Thanks, too, to our Social Ministries Committee for supporting this effort with a donation from the parish tithe, which paid for the food.  What a blessing!


Thank you to the St. Michael volunteers

who helped the Food Pantry get moved

and set up in their new location.

Lord God, by the creation of the first Eve and her spouse, you made marriage and the family the foundation of all human community.

By the birth of your Son, Jesus, to the new Eve, Mary, our mother, and her most chaste spouse, Joseph, you radically altered human history. Through this Holy Family you made a path for our salvation.

Strengthen the families of this world and impart to them the gifts of the Holy Spirit.May the upcoming World Meeting of Families with the Holy Father serve to give you glory, and bring strength and fortitude to families, who are being assaulted by evil from every direction.

May the meeting be a source of light and hope to all the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord.



St. Michael is not only the Patron Saint of our Parish, but is also the Patron Saint of  many, including  EMT’s, Mariners, Paratroopers, Police Officers, Security Forces, and Guards and Soldiers.  He is often portrayed holding scales as he is also the Patron saint of the dying in which he is said to be weighing souls.
