Catholic Charities relies on your generosity to support our pro-life, pro-family FIRST STEP FOR CHANGE campaign across our diocese. In honor of mothers and fathers, the campaign is held between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  This annual effort provides assistance to low income pregnant women and families with young children in obtaining infant suppplies, such as formula, diapers and clothing; as well as case management and parenting support.  Last year Catholic Charities’ First Step programs assisted more than 1,300 households. Please pick up a participation packet at the doors of the church.  You can also give online by visiting the website – or you can mail a check or money order to:

As we celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we pray that God will work through the compassion of our friends and neighbors to meet the urgent needs of our brothers and sisters who are facing difficult challenges of providing for their children. Thank you for your support!


Blessed are they who mourn . . .But who shall comfort me?

Covid-19 has certainly changed many things in our lives.  One of them was our ability to gather together and hold one another in our grief.  Although we are not socially completely over Covid, we are beginning to return to some normalcy.  In an effort to care for our grieving Saint Michael family members, we would like to begin serving lunches after funeral services again. This ministry had been a Saint Michael standard for decades.  We have about 30 funerals at Saint Michael per year but not all families wish to have their luncheon in the hall.  Each luncheon takes about 10-15 volunteers including one coordinator.  Our goal is to ask each volunteer to serve only 4-5 times a year.  In order to realize this goal, we will need many volunteers. 

If you think you are called to this ministry, please call Juanita Sherba (330)565-8161 or download a form HERE.

Thanks to a wonderful group of people who have dedicated themselves to re-starting our Bereavement Funeral Luncheon Ministry here at the parish, we are ready to offer this to parish families celebrating Masses of Christian Burial here at Saint Michael. To assist in the funding for this ministry, there is a once-a-year envelope in our offertory packets in March, based on the Feast of Saint Joseph, who, among many patronages, serves as the patron of a happy death, as he died in the presence of his Son, our Lord, and the Blessed Mother.  Thank you in advance for your generosity, and thank you to all who are offering their service and compassion to this ministry. 



Are you interested in joining a monthly parish Bible Study Group focusing on an overview of the New Testament? We will meet in the afternoon and the next session date is determined by group consensus. Barb Spencer will facilitate a study using the book entitled: “Invitation to the New Testament” by Alice Camille.

Please call Barbara Spencer for further information (330-503-4756.)

The Family Life Center Gymnasium is now open four days a week: Monday through Thursday, from 9:30 to 11:30am.  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.

We start each session in the Parish Hall after the Thursday morning Mass (at approximately 8:30am) 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. 



If you would like to schedule a meeting or event for any of our parish organizations, or schedule a rental anywhere in the Church, Parish Hall, or Family Life Center, please contact Audrey Geskey (330-533-3181). Email:
