Where should I park?
The main church entrance is on the east side of the church. You may park in any available spot. There is no reserved parking except for the clergy parking and ample handicapped-accessible spots. We ask that you never park in fire lines.

Where do my children go?
At St. Michael, we believe it is important for children to attend Mass with their families.  The St. Michael Nursery is available at the 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM Masses ONLY, on a first-come basis until full.  We will accept children who are walking, up to Kindergarten (children should attend Mass when they start Kindergarten). 

I’m not Catholic ... so, how do I know when to sit, stand and kneel?
There’s no need to be self-conscious about the postures and responses used during worship. Most visitors just follow the lead of the St. Michael parishioners.

I’m not Catholic ... is it okay for me to participate in communion?
Communion, or The Eucharist, is the most intimate expression of our faith. Catholics believe that the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ. Other faith denominations consider communion to be symbolic.  If you are not Catholic, we ask that you not receive communion.  However, those not receiving the Body of Christ and Precious blood are invited to come forward with their hands crossed over their chest for a special blessing.

Am I expected to put money in the offering?
If you are visiting with us, we do not expect you to put money in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by. If you consider St. Michael your church home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving to St. Michael on a weekly basis. You can give by check or cash during the service, or you can sign up for online giving here
