Mission Statement: St. Michael’s Christian Community, located on the Menominee Indian Reservation, is a diverse Christian community reaching out to all residents, learning, loving, sharing and communicating with one another through the teachings and practices celebrated in the Mass & the holy sacraments of the Catholic Church by integrating sacred symbols and spiritual practices of the Menominee. 

A Note From Your Pastor

Jesus cured Simon’s mother-in-law and others who were afflicted with various diseases. However, people were still looking for him. Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also.”  Why not stay longer? Why turn his back on all those people who were in need?  I think Simon’s mother-in-law and her action could give us the answer. As she was relieved of her fever, the gospel this Sunday tells us that she waited on them. I take this to mean that she attended to the needs of others.

Jesus is calling us not only to depend on him, but also to learn from him. He is inviting us to be his extensions, so to say, and attend to the needs of those people around us. And may his example and message touch our hearts so that we too may know the joy of being instruments of healing and comfort.

In Jesus,

Fr. Nonito

Holy Hour will be changed to the second Thursday of each month starting on February 11, 2021 following 8:00 am Mass.
