  • Living Our Mission

    St. Michael is Living Our Mission!
    We did it!

    With God's grace and parishioners' generous and prayerful prayerful support,
    St. Michael has exceeded its challenge goal of $4 million dollars!
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    The parish has joined with the Diocese of Richmond to raise $3.3 miliion to support Diocesan endowment initiatives and to build a Community Center at St. Michael. Because we have been so successful in our early phases of fundraising, a decision was made to create a challenge goal of $4 million, which will allow us to build the Center without incurring any debt. We invite you to learn more about the campaign and to make a pledge. We encourage you to prayerfully support Living Our Mission. 

  • From the Pastor...

                   While working on my tablet, I stumbled upon an earlier bulletin letter that shared the results of a “Concept Day” held more than nine months ago.  As I read it I was struck with how these ideas and dreams are now encompassed in our new “Lake House” – a gathering place for our community.  I would like to share the points from that letter again:
     
     
    • Storage (storage and more storage!)
    • A "Hang Out" (for teens, seniors and everyone in between - including the K of C)
     
    • For security – tie it into or put near our current space
    • Up-to-date technology
    • Some kind of space to ease pressure on Parish Hall with stuff to allow "overnights"
    • (CARITAS, CRHP, teen shut-ins, etc.)
    • Be home to community events for any parishioners
    • Encouraging multi-cultural events!
    • Tie into outside spaces and recreation
    • Space to support our Youth Ministry
    • Comfortable welcoming space (non-institutional)
    • Take advantage of the whole "campus"
    • Create a more welcoming “home” for Michaelonians and those we serve.

     
    Over the next few months we will be going through all the steps necessary to make our dream a reality.  Ground will be broken this fall and the building should be complete in time for the celebration of our 25th Anniversary Feast Day and Parish Picnic a year later.  Thanks for being a part of this dream and may we use this facility to strengthen our community so we can bring Christ to the world. 

    Peace and Love,
    Fr. Dan
