Please join us for the dedication of the HAZEL GYMNASIUM in loving memory of Reverend Terrence J. Hazel. We will celebrate Mass at 4:00pm on Saturday, May 21, 2022 (Father Terry’s birthday) and then proceed to the Family Life Center as we dedicated the gymnasium in his honor and memory. We will then have a “cake and punch birthday party” to celebrate his life here on earth and his birth into the eternal kingdom of Heaven.

FIRST STEP FOR CHANGE

Catholic Charities’ First Step program provides specific material assistance to pregnant women and families with children ages 0-3. Funds collected through First Step for Change are used to supplement case management services with material goods, such as food, formula, diapers and hygiene products. Please support this important pro- life, pro-family fundraiser that helps Catholic Charities provide help and create hope for people in need. For more information on Catholic Charities’ services, visit www.ccdoy.org. The First Step for Change campaign will conclude at our parish on Father’s Day. Please remember to bring your completed FIRST STEP PACKET to Mass with you on Father’s Day, or return it to the parish office no later than June 30.

DONATIONS FOR UKRAINE

We continue to accept donations for Ukraine. Donations can be dropped off at the Parish Office or placed in the collection basket in an envelope marked “Ukraine.” Donations will then be sent to the USCCB (Bishop’s Conference) where they will forward them to Catholic Relief Services.

2022 ANNUAL DIOCESAN APPEAL: ONE IN HOPE, ONE IN MISSION

The Annual Bishop’s Appeal is now the Annual Diocesan Appeal with a new theme: One in Hope, One in Mission. This new name will help us focus on the good work of our diocesan community, centered in the hope and mission of Jesus Christ. The causes the Appeal supports remain the same: to provide resources for Catholic Charities efforts within our diocese and to strengthen the faith of all parishioners through our many diocesan ministries. Joining with parishioners throughout the Diocese of Youngstown, every member of Saint Michael Parish is called upon to support the work of our Lord Jesus made possible through the Annual Diocesan Appeal. Please make your sacrificial commitment to the 2022 Diocesan Appeal. Bishop Bonnar is counting on the support of every parish family to work together in meeting our parish goal of $104,300. Each parish goal is calculated, based on our annual offertory collection, making each goal very achievable in every parish. I am very pleased at the past record of Saint Michael in meeting our goal to assist in serving the needy in our communities and continuing the mission of the Church. I have proudly made my gift as a member of this wonderful community and invite each of your to prayerfully reflect on doing the same in the coming weeks. You may use the pledge envelopes made available at the parish, go online HERE or respond to the mailer you may have received if you are a previous donor to the appeal. I greatly look forward to announcing we have met our goal by the end of the appeal on Pentecost.

Thank you and God bless us all. On Wings We Rise! -Father Lavelle. (Read more about the Diocesan Appeal HERE.)

Ongoing Events

GENERATIONS OF FAITH

Register today for a year of learning, discovering, and growing in our faith and love of Jesus together. To learn more about our program please contact Marcy Fessler at the parish office (330-533-6839) or by email: mfessler@stmichaelcanfield.org

Even if you do not have a child currently in our program, we still welcome you to participate. 

We will be gathering in the Family Life Center, both on Sundays and Wednesdays, for the remainder of the Generations of Faith Calendar year. This gives us more room to spread out and have more tables set. Masks are optional.

RECITATION OF THE ROSARY

​​A group gathers in the pews near the Blessed Mother’s altar for an oral recitation of the rosary the 1st Saturday of the month at 3:45 PM.  Please call Mary Ann Camardo (330-2286-3432) for more information.​​

 

Please join us on Tuesday mornings (unless there is a funeral) at 11:00 AM in the church to say the Patriotic Rosary. For more information call Kate Pavlich (330-533-24320. Read more HERE.

OPEN GYM FOR WALKING

The Family Life Center Gymnasium is now open four days a week: Monday through Thursday, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM.  Parishioners are invited to come and walk for healthy exercise and companionship. Walkers are requested to stop in the open meeting room across from the restrooms to store their coats and change from outdoor boots and shoes to indoor athletic or walking shoes—required to protect the FLC floor. Now there is no need to go to the mall to exercise.  This is a great opportunity right here at home to walk your way to a healthy lifestyle. Please enter through the side door.

THURSDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY GROUP: 
We start each session in the Parish Hall after the Thursday morning Mass (at approximately 8:30 AM) with a review and a discussion of the following Sunday’s readings. At approximately 9:15, we transition to our study of the Bible. We welcome any who want to join our group.
