A Note From Your Pastor

Jesus appeared to the apostles after his resurrection from the dead. And when they saw Jesus with their own eyes and heard him with their own ears, the apostles believed in the risen Lord. Eventually, they preached the good news of the resurrection.

In the gospel this second Sunday of Easter, Jesus praised us for believing him, though we did not personally see or hear him. He said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” We came to the conclusion that Jesus had indeed risen from the grave because of the written and oral traditions handed to us; and from these, we affirmed that Jesus could not but be God.

Let us nurture and persevere in our faith in the resurrection of Jesus. And like the apostles, preach this to the people we can reach so that they too would love and serve the risen Lord. This hopefully, at the end of life, would lead us all to our own resurrection in the Kingdom of God. 

In the risen Christ,

Fr. Nonito  


Divine Mercy Sunday

On this Sunday celebrating God’s Divine Mercy, let us remember that we are His Hands here on earth, serving Him by serving His children in need. How long as it been since you contemplated those Works of Mercy you were taught as a child?

  1. To feed the hungry
  2. To give drink to the thirsty
  3. To clothe the naked
  4. To shelter the homeless
  5. To visit the imprisoned
  6. To visit the sick and infirm
  7. To bury the dead

Let us all pray to have not just a spirit of Mercy, but hands that are busy showing His mercy to those less fortunate.



Mass will be Live Streamed on Sunday at 9 am. Please go to St. Michael’s Facebook page:  St. Michael’s Church to watch this live Mass. 





Religious Education Update 


Due to the current COVID situation, St. Michael’s Faith Formation classes will not be meeting.   If you wish to have packets sent to your home, please call the parish office or pick up a form in the entrance to church.



 First things first

A teacher asked the children in her Sunday School class, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would I get into heaven?”

“NO!” the children answered

“If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would I get into heaven?”

Again, the answer was “NO!”

“Well”, she continued, “then how can I get to heaven?”

In the back of the room a five-year-old boy shouted out, “You gotta be dead!”

St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in 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 power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen
