Expressions of Love

Our love of God and God’s love for us is what binds the St. Michael’s community together. We gather for worship every day of the year. Our worship takes many forms, from quiet early morning services on weekdays to the rich mix of music and community at the Sunday 10:00 am service. The casual, contemplative Intersection service invites seekers on Sunday evenings. The Wednesday evening Choral Compline service offers some midweek tranquility. Join us for any or all of the services in our beautiful and historic church.

Sacraments and Life Events

Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two great sacraments given by Christ to his Church.

Confirmation is adult affirmation of our baptismal vows.

Weddings are celebrated at St. Michael’s in the sacrament of Christian marriage (the Episcopal Church offers the sacrament of marriage to same-sex couples). Other faiths and religious backgrounds are welcome to inquiry about the availability of our venue and clergy for wedding ceremonies.

Funerals are observed at St. Michael’s for members of the parish and non-members alike. Our cemetery is located in Queens and was established in 1852. Niches are also available in our columbarium, located in our sanctuary.

To find out more about observing any of these sacraments at St. Michael’s, contact the Church Office at:
info@saintmichaelschurch.org
or (212) 222-2700

Prayers and Healing

Prayer is central and a fundamental component of Christian life. At St. Michael’s, we pray for the specific needs of individuals in our community as well as collective, global concerns. We pray for those who have requested prayers at every service, seven days a week. For individuals, we maintain two prayer lists: one for urgent/short-term needs (used on Sundays) and one for longer-term needs (used at weekday services and by the St. Michael’s Prayer Chain).

Whenever you need a member of the clergy, we are here for you. Call our main number at (212) 222-2700, or find further contact information here.

St. Michael’s Prayer Ministers are offering one-on-one confidential healing prayer over the phone on Sundays from 11:00 am until 12:00 pm. To schedule in advance, please e-mail your phone number to divaeleuthera@aol.com. To schedule during the Sunday service, you may send your phone number to Deacon Elena at elena@saintmichaelschurch.org or, if not using e-mail, call 347-766-7632; leave your phone number and request Healing Prayer.

Prayer Ministers and Laying On of Hands

The ancient prayer practice of the Laying on of Hands is available in the Chapel of the Angels during the 10:00 am and 6:00 pm services on Sundays. The Laying on of Hands is offered by Prayer Ministers, who are clergy and specially-trained laypeople.

Those coming to the Chapel for prayers may request prayers for themselves or for others.  The Prayer Minister places her or his hands on the requestor’s head and prays, beseeching Jesus Christ to sustain them with his presence and bestow his healing power to help in any situation.  This can be a powerful experience of receiving the grace of the Holy Spirit.
