The Feast of St. Frances – October 1, 2023
All are welcome and this time we mean even your pets … Especially your pets! This is an excellent time to invite your neighbors and friends to have their furry, winged, slimy, scaly, or prickly animals friends with them to join us for a lovely worship experience out in our courtyard. The service starts at 10am – as it normally does – with wonderful music and a great opportunity to visit together after the service. Come one, Come all!
We believe the best way to feel that you belong is to engage in some group or activity. Here a few opportunities to think about!

Daughters of the King
Daughters of the King is an international order made up of women between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are lay and ordained Christian women, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life and supported through the companionship of our sisters. In our Rule of Life, prayer always comes first. We pray daily for the unity of Christ’s church, for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom, especially among women and girls, for God’s blessing upon the members of the Order, and for the spiritual growth of the parish and for the clergy of the parish to which the chapter owes allegiance. If you have any questions, please contact Sue Corbin, group leader.
St. Michael’s has a dedicated and enthusiastic group that builds fellowship through fund raising efforts. We are now in the beginning phase of exploring the possibility of a fundraiser in Mid-October. If you are interested in helping out, please let Rev. Mary know. Money raised is given to organizations that our members are connected with, which are doing the work of Christ in the World.
Have you noticed that St. Michael’s events are returning? Starry Nights is coming up this weekend, along with the Picnic by the River in August. Later, we will have a stewardship barbeque, holiday receptions, and, sadly, even more memorial services, to name a few. Volunteering for and at these events is a wonderful way for all parishioners, and especially newer ones, to be of service, have some fun and connect with others.
We would like to use this summer to prepare a schedule for the next 12 months. Help will be needed in many ways. They include baking, setup and clean up, cooking, publicity, co-chairing, reservations, just to name a few. So whatever your time or talent, there’s a spot for you! And if you’d like to try something new, we welcome you! Please consider filling out the volunteer form to let us know what your interest is in becoming a part of St. Michael’s Hospitality. There is no obligation to participate in any event when you fill out this form!! Want more details? Indicate you’d like a phone call and someone will be happy to be in touch.
