St. Michael Catholic Church

BOLD FUTURE Campaign

WE ARE ON MISSION

As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook, and they were all filled with the holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. – Acts 4:31

The greatest challenge in the Church today is the number of Catholics— especially young people—leaving the faith. Our culture is turning away from belief in God and hope in eternity, but not in St. Michael. Here, we continue to be blessed by the wisdom and courage of our founding families, who created a faith-filled community that is still growing today.

We have many strengths, including a culture of discipleship supported by groundbreaking youth ministry, a thriving school and more than 70 other ministries for parishioners of all ages. Many of you are deeply devoted and  fearless in your faith, but even so, less than a quarter of parishioners attend Sunday Mass regularly and even fewer are engaged in parish life.

We are missionaries, even in our pews. We cannot be content to worship in a beautiful church, but not love each other as family. We cannot truly adore Jesus in the Holy Eucharist without inviting others to encounter Him with us. And we cannot serve each other, let alone the broader community, without spaces to meet people where they are and bring them to Christ.

By God’s grace, we have a blessed heritage, and with your help, our future looks just as bright. The world needs BOLD Christians who are unafraid to share the Good News. The time is now.

May God continue to bless our parish!
