Centering Prayer...Meeting God Within Me - Centering Prayer is a contemplative way of being silent in the presence of God. The practice of centering prayer on a daily basis can lead a person to deep peace and a new awareness of God's presence within. If you have a hunger for God and are looking for new ways to discover God's love for you, this day may be very helpful. No previous experience in centering prayer is needed, just come with a desire to pray. Saturday, February 29, 9 AM - 1 PM Call Sylvia to register 605-362-8398

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.
