A Special Message from Father Terry
As I write this letter I am reminded of the words of the prophet Isaiah, "Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine. For I am the Lord your God, your Savior. Fear not, for I am with you. (Is. 43: 1,3)
Lent 2020 has certainly taken a course of it's own. When anyone asks what you
have given up for Lent, you can answer, "Pretty much everything!"....
Now more than ever your financial support is needed. Please consider contributing via Paypal while we are not able to gather together. Thank you for your continued prayers and support during these difficult times.
Fr. Terry Hazel
Let Us Pray
We can PRAY TOGETHER while we are apart. Mass will be live streamed from St. Michael at 4:30 on Saturdays on the WFMJ website. Click HERE.
Look for Daily 3:00 PM Facebook Prayer Gatherings live streaming on our Facebook page, including the Holy Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Guided Meditations, Divine Mercy Chaplet, St. Michael Chaplet, Marian Hymn Singing and more. (The videos will remain available for private prayer anytime.) While we are unable to gather together, you can submit your prayer petitions as comments on our Facebook page.
We are the Church, let us continue to pray together even as we are separated.
CHILDREN'S WORSHIP BULLETINS
The Bulletin worksheets that our childen pick up at the doors of the church
each week can now be downloaded HERE. 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.
Sheets for ages 3-6 and ages 7+ are available.
We here at St. Michael would like to reach out to our elderly parishioners who might need help (for instance, someone to pick up groceries or medicine for them) or who just need someone to talk to right now. To that end, we would like to gather names of people who would be willing to call parishioners, first of all, just to chat a bit and relieve their isolation, and second, to see if there are any errands we can run for them. We will also need parishioners who can run those errands. If you would like to help with this project, please reach out to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org,
or by phone: 330-533-6839 or on Facebook. Thanks in advance!

St. Michael Parish is a welcoming Roman Catholic Community united by faith in Jesus Christ. Called to the mission of Jesus by Baptism, nourished by God's Word and Sacraments, we join to celebrate our faith and to continue Christ's mission of love, justice, and service. As good stewards, guided by the Holy Spirit, we believe we are called to be Christ to one another, sharing our time, talent,and treasure with our community and the world, especially with those less fortunate.
“Honor the past, embrace the present, envision the future by generously sharing time, talent, and treasure.” -Parish Council Goal for 2020
