RCIA in English Starts Tuesday, Sept. 15th

Our new year for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults starts Tuesday, Sept. 15th at 7pm in the Social Hall. 

RCIA is for non-Catholics interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, and becoming Catholic. RCIA also includes those who may have been baptized Catholic but may have never received the sacraments of Holy Communion and/or Confirmation. 

We will also broadcast the class this year on Facebook Live, linking directly through our www.saintmichael.cc website, for anyone who would like to learn more about the Catholic faith. 

To register in advance you can email Deacon Ken Lampert at k.lampert@saintmichael.cc or text him at 404-664-3178.

Welcome Back To Our Main Entrance!

Our renovations to our social hall and narthex are nearly complete so we welcome you back to our main entrance at St. Michael! 

We were able to start this project due to a major donation from one family of $175k and $35k from our parish festival last year. 

This left us about $50k short of what is needed to fund it but many parishioners have come forward supporting the project to complete it and now we are only $21k away from fully paying for it. 

There are still a few items back ordered to complete the project. Please take some time to walk through our new narthex and social hall. 

Please consider making a special donation to help complete our renovation. 

Father Tim is so grateful for the generosity of our St. Michael parish family. We now have a beautiful social hall and narthex to gather in community and show our hospitality with our parish family and visitors after worshiping our Lord. 

 

Thank You
St. Michael!

Life Boy Scout Charlie Basinger of Troop 16 would like to thank the parishioners of St. Michael for being so generous with their donations to help him fund the landscaping of our new Marian prayer garden in back of the church. Parishioner Indalecio Salazar and his team built the new grotto and Charlie for his Eagle Scout Project will be building benches and landscaping the prayer garden area in a few weeks.

New Outside “Dropbox” Installed

We have had requests to have a “dropbox” installed outside the church, for those that want to drive by and drop off their Offertory gifts to St. Michael. 

It has now been installed in the front of the church, on one of the doors that enters the church by the School of Religion. 

Thank you for your continued Blessings to St. Michael!
