Ministries: Loving and serving our neighbors
What hurts in the world are you healing?
What Need in Your Neighborhood are you meeting?
Members of Prayer Works! ministry meet weekly to pray for members of our community and the wider world. They maintain contact with the sick and homebound through cards, phone calls and visits. They distribute hand crafted prayer shawls that have been blessed during Sunday services, manage a loan closet of wheelchairs and walkers, and at Easter and Christmas distribute seasonal plants and flowers to homebound parishioners. They also send birthday cards to every parishioner.
Lay Eucharistic Visitors
We have a small but dedicated group of trained and licensed Lay Eucharistic Visitors who take communion to our homebound and hospitalized members. They also conduct a monthly Episcopal service at a neighboring long term care facility.
Our Lay Eucharistic Ministers, Acolytes, Lectors, Altar Guild, Choir, Greeters and Ushers are a special group of parishioners who care passionately that all who attend a service at St. Michael’s have a meaningful worship experience.
