Celebrating over 70 years as a nurturing spiritual community in Christ Jesus, from which we go forth and serve God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We Welcome Our New Rector,
Rev. Beth Magill
God has answered our prayers! The Vestry and Search Committee are overjoyed to announce that the Rev. Beth Magill has accepted a call to serve as 7th Rector of St. Michael's. She began conducting services on Sunday, December 10.
Every St. Michael's parishioner is invited to sign up for a Fellowship Gathering in January or February. The gatherings are intended to provide an opportunity for our new rector, Beth Magill, to get to know us and for us to better get to know each other. Our hope is for every member of the parish to attend a gathering!
Each gathering is of no more than 10-12 people, over dinner, lunch, coffee and muffins, wine and cheese, or cupcakes and apple juice. Families and youth are most warmly invited to attend! Michele Casciano and Dan Plafcan are co-leading the organization of these fellowship gatherings. Please contact them with any questions.
Sign-up online (click here) or in hardcopy at the church on Sundays. (The hardcopies will be reconciled with the on-line sign-ups at least weekly.) Hosts will email all guests with a confirmation of the gathering, the address, and any other relevant details the week of the gathering.
