Dear Parishioners of St. Michael's,
January 10, 2023
Greetings Fellow Parishioners,
January 1, 2023 was the start of our new calendar year. Our liturgical year started with the 1st week of Advent. The four weeks of Advent culminated with the celebration of the birth of Jesus, our Saviour.
With Christmas and New Years behind us, it is time for some reflection. A time to take stock in regards to our personal and spiritual life. Our church family has weathered two plus years of restrictions. Our “new” normal is here.
So what does or should our “new” normal look like?
Volunteers are the biggest support of any organization. St. Michael’s is very fortunate to have a solid base of volunteers, but there is always room for more. Generally, volunteer sign-up sheets are at the back of the church and notices about upcoming events are in the bulletin, at the back of the church or on or website. Check them out. Don’t hesitate or wait for a phone call to let the organizers know you are willing to help.
More “work” needs to be done. How can we strengthen our Christian community? Are there some activities that you are supporting or contemplating supporting that we should know about? Are there any programs or services you would like see offered at St. Michael’s that would enhance your spiritual journey i.e. living the Eucharist? Take action! Let a member of any of our committees know your thoughts and ideas. There is also a Suggestion Box at the back of the church. Be proactive and take the initiative to start these programs/activities. The support will be there. Persons you may contact to help steer you in the right direction:
At this time, a huge thank you to all our St. Michael’s Family. You have been and are the core of St. Michael’s. Without you we would be a shell.
Wishing you and your family a very healthy and blessed 2023!
Fr. Sylvanus, Parish Pastoral Council and the Administration Board
