St. Michael Parish News
Join us for Christmas at St Michael Parish
Christmas is a time of year that brings many people home to be with their families and loved ones. I wish to offer a joyful welcome to each and every person who participates in the Masses during the Christmas season. I extend a special welcome to College and University students who are home for the holidays, to former parishioners who are returning for a friendly visit, to all out-of-town guests and relatives of parishioners, and to those who perhaps are making a return to the practice of their faith.
I sincerely pray that your experience of the parish family of St. Michael Parish may lead you to feel welcome and at home.
Together in the Lord’s Service.
Father F. Freitas, Pastor
