LENT AND GOING TO CONFESSION: - During the holy Season of Lent, the parish faithful are encouraged to seek the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) before the arrival of Easter. Fr. John will be available to hear confession at any time upon request. Also, during the weekdays of Lent, confessions will be available (at various times) in the church before the weekday Mass. Parishioners are asked to check the confessional box to see if the light is on first . . . this will confirm that the priest is present in the confessional.

Prayer for Christian Unity:

May all be one as you are, Father, in me, and I in you; may they be one is us; I in them and you in me, may they be completely one.  Lord, we who share in the sacraments of Christ ask you to renew the gift of holiness in your Church.  May all who glory in the name of Christians come to serve you in the unity of faith. Amen.

This is a picture of one of the beautiful stain glass windows at our church. The windows were originally part of  Sacred Heart Church in Lance Cove and were donated in memory of former parishioners. When Sacred Heart Church was torn down in the mid 1980's the windows were placed in St. Michael's Church. Pictures of some of these windows are used as decorative sidebars throughout this website.
