Cookie Walk for Backpack Buddies On Sun. Feb. 26, the Rebecca Guild will be selling home baked cookies for $5 a bag. Your Cookie Walk purchase feeds hungry children over the weekends! On Fridays at their school, each AFAC Backpack Buddies child is given a meal pack with enough food for the weekend. AFAC also partners with local out-of-school programs to provide healthy snacks over the long hours between lunchtime and dinner. Your support of AFAC’s Backpack Buddies is reaching children in crisis, feeding their minds and fueling their bodies
A Parish in Transition With our Interim Rector the Rev. Canon Rosemari Sullivan presiding, we held our 2017 Annual Meeting on Feb. 5th. We elected our new Vestry members: Michelle Casciano, Penny Jones, and Molly White as members of the class of 2020, and Karen Ruff to fill a vacancy in the class of 2018. We have been tested by the departure of our former rector, and we have found new strength through our support for each other and our church.Download the 2017 Annual Report to learn more about St. Michael's mission and ministry.
