Members of the parish should familiarize themselves with the state guidelines while Parish Council is developing our own reopening procedures.

Supporting the Church During the Outbreak

Even though we are not able to gather in the church to worship, we still need to financially support the church as best we can.  Please mail your offerings to the rectory address:

All OCA Online Church School

In addition to St. Michael's own Church School classes, parents might want to check out classes at the All OCA Church School.  Since the initial class held on March 25, the school has brought together hundreds of Orthodox kids from throughout North America, and abroad, to share in their faith, to prepare for our Lord’s Pascha, and now to celebrate with each other in the joy of the Resurrection.  Check it out!
