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.

A Reminder of our 5pm Sunday Mass

Last fall we began a bilingual 5pm Sunday Youth Mass. This
Mass in the summertime has a lower attendance since the
Confirmation classes do not meet during the summer. If you
are concerned about attending Mass because of covid-19,
during the summer, this is a good Mass to attend because
there is plenty of room to social distance.
Everyone is always welcome at the Sunday 5pm bilingual
Youth Mass!

Juan Carlos’s Bible classes

A Prayer for Internal Peace during a time of unrest & fear



(In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.)

We are all children of God.
I am a child of God.
All children love one another
Why would I not love someone,
just because they are different from me?
God is different from me,
yet God is love, and I love God.
God is with us always.
I am my brother’s keeper.
Jesus, use my hands to serve others.
Today, tomorrow, be not afraid.
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend and protect me.
Jesus, son of God,
My savior, I trust in You.
May the peace of the Holy Spirit,
always dwell within me.
We are all children of God.
I am a child of God.
All children love one another.

(In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.)

Social Hall/Narthex Renovation Update

Our construction continues renovating our social hall and narthex with a target completion date of mid-July. 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 still left us about $50k short of what is needed to complete it but many parishioners have come forward supporting the project to complete it. Father Tim is so grateful of the generosity of our St. Michael parish family. Soon we will have a beautiful social hall and narthex to gather in community with your parish family after worshiping our Lord.

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!
