  One last very vital aspect in the Sacrament of Baptism are the Godparents; they are to represent the Christian Catholic Community, the Church. Since, by Baptism it gives a person both a new and special status as a child of God and it makes a person a member of the Church, thus Godparents must truly represent that Christian community. Hence it is most advised that Godparents should be active and committed Catholics. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church; a Godfather or a Godmother must be firm believers, able and ready to help the newly baptized-child or adult on the road of Christian life.  Moreover, being a Godparent is likewise a ministry in the Church. In its simple manner, Godparents are helpers of the parents in nurturing especially the baptized child, or the baptized adults themselves (in case of adult baptism) about the Catholic Faith basically.

So, to be Godparents one should be; at least 16 years old (matured enough to do his/her responsibility), fully initiated (which means have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist), someone other than the legal parents, who leads a life in harmony with the Church.

Concluding our very compressed ‘review’ regarding the Sacrament of Baptism; first, it is good to note that Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God who first loved us from the moment of conception. Second, Baptism is a celebration and manifestation of the outpouring of God’s Spirit and of our acceptance of that transforming love. And lastly, Baptism is an experience of family/community celebration.

“That in all things, God may be glorified


Youth Talk

Our second youth night met on August 25th at St. Mary’s in Leopolis from 7-9pm. We continue to create more possible ways to gather the youth again, (and maybe sometime together with you dear parents), and try to foster more fun-filled and spiritual activities to open themselves in the service of the Church by the grace of God.

Kathy King-Tucker will be our new Religious Education Coordinator.  Congratulations to Kathy on her new position. Thank you Lois for the many years you have given to St. Michael’s children.   Classes begin in September for first through eighth grade. There will be an Open House at St. Michael’s in Barrett Hall on September 13th at 5:30 pm. Come and register for class and meet the teachers. Classes will be held on Wednesdays starting at 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm.  Confirmation classes will be offered if we have a minimum of 5 students register.  



The Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, our Parish Patron on September 29th is fast approaching. We are starting our preparation for this celebration. We will again have our Novena Masses starting September 20th through September 28th at 6 pm (except Saturday and Sunday).  In connection with this, we will be taking special intentions for these Masses. The money collected will be our starting fund for next years’ celebration.  If you wish to have a Mass said for a special intention, please go to the Parish Office and sign up for this.  On the Feast of St. Michael, September 29th, Mass will be at 8 am. There will be a potluck breakfast after Mass to Celebrate the Feast of St. Michael. 



The Mass: A slice at a Time - The Liturgical Year

Changes from the old translated English Mass to the New translated Mass.  The Confiteor In the prayer known as the Confiteor (Which begins, “I confess to almighty God..”), the new translation better reflects the Latin text of the Mass and helps us cultivate a more humble, sorrowful attitude toward God as we confess our sins. Instead of simply saying that I have sinned “through my own fault”, as we have in the old translation, we now say and repeat three times while striking our breasts in a sign of repentance, saying: “Through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievously fault.”


This repetition more fully expresses our sorrow over sin. When we are at fault over something small, we might simply say to the person whom we have wronged, “I’m sorry.” But if it is a more serious matter and we deeply feel sorrow over our actions, we sometimes apologize several times and in varying ways: I’m so sorry,,, I really regret doing that…Please forgive me.” This prayer in the liturgy helps us recognize that sinning against God is no light matter. We must take responsibility for whatever wrong we have done and whatever good we failed to do. At Mass, one does not simply offer an apology to God. The revised translation of this prayer helps the Christian express even more heartfelt contrition and humbly admit that one has sinned “through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault.”


There will be a second collection on the second Sunday of each month for Building & Grounds.

It’s time to “GROW A ROW” AND “SHARE THE BOUNTY”!  These programs are hunger prevention programs which allow gardeners to bring their excess produce to drop off sites where it is distributed to families and individuals who can use it. There is no paper work for the recipient. It is a “win-win” situation because recipients get healthy food and gardeners know their produce will not be wasted.  Drop off is 1st & 3rd Monday – 11 am to 1 pm and 1st & 3rd Tuesday 11 am – 2 pm. Pick up is 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month, 1-3 pm. This is for St. Michael’s Food Pantry.
