6th Sunday of Easter and First Eucharist
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM FATHER TERRY
At a recent Mass you heard me announce that I felt it is the right time for me to retire. I will be 72 in May and it is getting harder and harder for me get around. So I submitted my request to the Bishop 2 months ago and he approved it effective June 30, 2021. My successor is Rev. John-Michael Lavelle, currently Pastor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Niles. He was born in 1968 and ordained in 2000. So he has been a priest for 21 years. He is a very fine priest, well respected and well liked. I am sure he will fit in well here at St. Michael. Be sure to give him the same welcome that you gave me 24 years ago. You will be hearing a lot more about this in the very near future.

On the weekends of May 2 and May 9 we will be celebrating First Holy Communion here at St. Michael. Two years ago and before, we celebrated this sacrament on the first weekend of May. Last year we celebrated it individually because of the COVID virus. This year, since things seem to be improving, we decided to do it over two weekends in order to give us more room for social distancing. Be sure to enjoy the bright and happy faces on the children as they receive Jesus for the first time in the Eucharist, and be sure to congratulate them even if you do not know them. Please help make this day very special in their young, spiritual lives.
Now more than ever your financial support is needed. Please consider contributing via Paypal if you are unable to gather together with us. Thank you for your continued
prayers and support during these difficult times.
Fr. Terry Hazel
Sunday Mass is being live streamed from St. Michael on our Facebook page, our Website, and on the the WFMJ website at 4:30 each Saturday.
We are the Church, let us continue to pray together even if we are separated.
CHILDREN'S WORSHIP BULLETINS
The Bulletin worksheets that our children pick up at the doors of the church each week are now on our website. Each bulletin has 4 panels packed with puzzles, word searches, seek-and-finds, dot-to-dots, and many more Bible-based activities. This is another way for our young parishioners to feel connected to their church family while we are apart.
