   Scripture and Prayer

"In Sacred Scripture, the Church constantly finds her nourishment and her strength, for she welcomes it not as a human word, but as what it really is: the Word of God. In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven comes lovingly to meet his children, and talks with them.” –Catechism of the Catholic Church.


"Prayer is the response of faith to the free promise of salvation and also a response of love to the thirst of the only Son of God" —United States Catholic Catechism for Adults




A group gathers in the pews near the Blessed Mother’s altar for an oral recitation of the rosary the first Saturday of the month at 3:45 PM.  Please call Mary Ann Camardo at 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

If you would like to become involved in a more spiritual way at Saint Michael, you can… by devoting time to pray for your fellow parishioners’ needs as they arise. Saint Michael has established a Prayer Chain Ministry to pray for the special requests of our parish family and friends.


A prayer chain is a way for people to gain God's assistance by interceding or praying on behalf of one another. It is an effective way to bring the power of many prayers to those in need. The commitment to pray for others is a sacred privilege and is an example of our faith in action. It is a comfort to know that others are praying for us.

Consider being a part of the Saint Michael Prayer Chain. Pray as time allows during your day. To be a part of this church ministry: Email Anita Gorman:  or Text Holly Buente at 330-540-0314.


New members are always needed.


Therefore I tell you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24

Prayer to Saint Michael


Saint Michael the Archangel,

defend us in the day of battle


Be our protection against the

wickedness and snares of the devil;


May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,

by the divine power of God, thrust into hell

Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
