“Celebrate St. Michael’s”

A celebration of our years together.

Let’s make plans to get together on July 30th at 12:30 to celebrate St. Michael’s, as a church, as a community of faith and as a place of belonging.  This year we will “Celebrate St. Michael’s” with tacos (you knew there would be food), live and lively entertainment, and just all around good fun.

St. Michael’s ECW (Episcopal Church Women) is hosting this event.  Opportunities to help can be found on the sign-up sheets in the In-gathering Space beginning Sunday July 16th.
