Masses may be scheduled by visiting the parish office or calling (330-533-6839) to make arrangements. If scheduling by phone, a check may be mailed to the office. An individual is permitted to schedule up to 6 Masses per year per deceased person. Because the number of Saturday and Sunday Masses available for intentions is somewhat limited, it is necessary to limit those Masses to 1 per year per deceased person. Weekday Mass intentions will be limited to 5 Masses per year per deceased person. Mass offering is $10.00. Read more about Mass availability HERE.
If you are interested in bringing up the gifts in the Offertory Procession, please see the ushers before Mass begins.

SPONSOR "THE WORD AMONG US"
As many of you know, we provide copies of “The Word Among Us” for our parishioners; they can be found at the doors of the church at the beginning of every month. “The Word Among Us” contains the daily Mass readings as well as prayers and reflections to enhance your spirituality. But what you may not realize is that our subscription to this publication currently costs us over $800.00 a year. If you enjoy “The Word Among Us”, and would like to help defray the cost to the parish, you can make a donation in any amount to help us out. Simply mark your donation for “The Word Among Us” and place it in the collection basket, or drop it off at the office.
DONATE TO OUR SOUP KITCHEN MINISTRY
Volunteers from Saint Michael work one Saturday a month at the Saint Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen in Youngstown to prepare and serve breakfast to people in need. Please consider making a monetary donation to help defray the cost of required security protection. Extra money can also go for extra food. Just mark a plain envelope “Saint Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen” and place it in the collection basket on Sunday. It’s a tangible way to be a part of this important work.
BUY BRICKS FOR THE FAMILY LIFE CENTER
If you would like to honor a deceased loved one, please consider a Commemorative Brick for the piazza at the Family Life Center. The cost of a brick is just $75.00. Forms are available in the Parish Office or at the Family Life Center.
If you are interested in ordering a brick please call Audrey Geskey at the Family Life Center (330-533-3181) for more information. Brick orders will be place twice a year.
