Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Website!


Welcome! You have reached the website of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in South Glens Falls, NY.


From 1954 -- when, in a converted storefront building, St. Michael the Archangel had its initial start -- to today, the people of St. Michael the Archangel parish have worked and worshipped together for the greater glory of God for over half a century.


Our parish is a vibrant, faith-filled community that continues to proudly work to live out and joyfully spread the Word of God. We are a relatively young parish in the 165-year-old Diocese of Albany, NY, yet we are blessed with a tremendous legacy of love instilled by all those who have gone before us and who were motivated by a desire to practice the Faith and live the message of the Gospel in their own parish Church.


Their example of dedication has helped us to grow into an enthusiastic, caring and committed family of Faith that welcomes all with open arms who wish to worship with us here. Feel free to visit the various pages of our website for more information about our community.


May the Lord bless you.
