Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the

    wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:

    and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell

    Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.


PicnicParishPicnicWe are combining our celebration with the School Annual Harvest Festival this year.  The Festival (Duffy Center) will open at 10 am.  The picnic activities begin at 12:30 pm.



At the SMCS Harvest Festival  there is an opportunity for craft vendors to set up at this event.   Over 2,000 people attended last year’s picnic and we are expecting an even bigger crowd this year!  The booth rental cost this year is $75 for a 10X10 space, however if you request electricity the cost is $100.  Please contact the School Main Office at 651-6795 if you would like an application as soon as possible.

RosaryColumbarium RosaryReflection

Every month on the second Sunday at 1 pm we pray this special prayer in the Father Carlo Garden of Remembrance (our Columbarium). 

This is a wonderful way to remember and pray for loved ones buried here.  Please join us - all are welcome!

The "reflective" photo (above right) was taken by our pastor as he left church one evening after prayer.   It is the Saint Michael statue in our narthex as seen through the glass outside guarding our parish grounds.
