St. Michael Catholic Church

Parish Mission

Monday, March 8 and Tuesday, March 9

7:00 PM - Church Sanctuary

Chris Padgett

Our 2021 Parish Mission, with speaker Chris Padgett, is this Monday, March 8, and Tuesday, March 9, at 7:00 PM.  Remember, there is very limited in-person seating in the Church Sanctuary, and NO overflow seating in the Great Hall or Activity Center, due to the ongoing repairs from the storm damage.  There is no cost, but a free will offering will be taken each night.  Nursery is currently not available.
While this event will be live streamed, with permission from our speaker, we are not able to provide a video recording for later viewing due to contract limitations.
If you are attending with a family/group, we encourage you to arrive with your entire party for seating.  We will be following all current Diocesan Covid19 protocols and guidelines – masks must be worn, covering the nose and mouth, during the parish mission, with six feet distance between groups.  The speaker will remove his mask during his presentation while maintaining physical distance from attendees.

If you have not already done so, please subscribe to our St. Michael YouTube channel HERE.  We need less than 50 additional subscribers to reach our goal of 1000, which will provide us with additional live stream benefits.  You may also view the livestream through our Facebook page HERE.

March 8   Encounter God’s Love: A family Affair

Join us as Chris Padgett helps us consider the ways we are called to Love:  We are all unique.  God wants to be in a relationship with us. Who is Jesus?  He is calling us to be in love with Him. Forming our understanding of God so we can be more transformed to live a rich faith.

March 9  The Growing Family

Sharing God’s love: God wants to bless and love others.  He wants to have us share this love to others. How we can practically share God’s love to those in our Jerusalem, Judea, the ends of the world (home, work, the world). Grow in Virtue and Victory over vice: Beg for the grace, will the good, in the moment. Empowerment by the Spirit to live our baptismal promises and love those in our reach.
