Exploring our Faith Collectively and Individually
Adult Formation at Saint Michael’s Continues Online
Despite this era of social distancing, there are plenty of opportunities to connect, explore our faith, and deepen our community. The Saint Michael’s family is alive online: we meet in weekly small groups, gather for special seasonal events, walk the path of Sacred Ground, and pursue training and education of all kinds.
Sunday Forum (May 16)
At our online forum on May 16th, John Cantrell will give a presentation on the musical development of Slave Song. You may have heard about the hidden messages buried within the lyrics, and the stories that shaped them. But what can we learn about the actual development of the musical structure, melodic content, harmonic content, vocal effects, and more? Come hear examples of what was lost and what was created anew.
St. Michael’s Small Groups
St. Michael’s Small Groups are a weekly one-hour gathering of eight to twelve people who come together for fellowship, study, and prayer. Small Groups foster a deeper sense of belonging, lasting friendships, and rich spiritual growth. Read more about St. Michael’s Small Groups here.

Note: Small Groups are currently meeting on Zoom only.
Our Relationship With God

Working on our inner life of faith is a necessary practice to keep it healthy and growing.We welcome you to explore your faith on a deeper level in the following ways
- Lent/Advent Quiet Days
- Ignatian Spirituality group
- Celtic Spirituality group
- Faith & Film Nights

Connecting With Each Other
Oftentimes, you will hear members of St. Michael’s referring to our community as a parish family. In fact, one of the most popular monthly activities is our Family Dinner nights. We also have small groups that meet informally, such as the Men of St. Mike’s; Motherhood of Grace; Parents of Adolescents Support Group; Young Adult Group; Knitting Group; Family Camp and Hiking outings. Supportive and caring small groups in a large Church setting enable us to minister to each other.
Connecting to Our Community
We are a faith community that supports each other and our community in multiple ways. Whether it is helping the jobless through CareerSearchers; mentornig our parish and neighborhood children on Monday evenings during Homework Help; or providing food and meals to those who struggle with food insecurity, service to others is part of our Core Values.
