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.

2017 Annual Bishop’s Appeal – Being Ambassadors for Christ

 

Please support St. Michael’s and this year’s Annual Bishop’s Appeal.   Once again, the Bishop’s Appeal has begun.  The theme is “Being Ambassadors for Christ” and this sums up so well the way in which we, as Baptized members of God’s family, we are called to bring the message of the Gospel to the world.  Just as in all families, the Diocesan family asks for the help of all parishes and households to help continue the mission and ministry of Jesus.   Your generous gift will help to ensure that what the Diocese is able to do for so many people through the various important ministries, programs and offices will be able to go on.   Please join in supporting the Bishop’s Appeal with whatever gift your means will permit.   You may make a pledge gift that may be paid over several months.  Also, gifts may be made online at www.thebishopsappeal.org using a secure and safe website.   All households and all parishes in the Diocese are invited to join together in this vital appeal, made only once per year.   Your gift provides assistance and funds for so many programs and efforts from human services which provide care for homeless and hungry people, to adult and youth faith formation traning, traning of new priests while in the seminary, providing chaplains at hospitals, colleges and nursing homes and the various Diocesan offices which support the many works of Jesus and the Apostles.   Please give your gift as soon as possible to help the parish reach our goal of approximately $72,000.00.   Thank you!

Diocesan Ministry: Divorce Support and Healing

 

Winter can be a very lonely time for those who have experienced the end of a marriage. There are two opportunities for support and healing. One is meeting at the Pastoral Center in Albany, one is at St. Pius Parish in Loudonville.   The group meets Tuesdays, starting February 7th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Diocesan Pastoral Center at 40 North Main St. in Albany.

A second group meets every other Tuesday at 6:30 pm in the St. Pius X Parish Center in Loudonville.

Facilitated by a LCSW experienced in family counseling and a family law attorney, the program’s objective is to help gain insight into and heal from the emotional challenges of loss, anger, guilt, fear and loneliness.  Participants share insights, learn coping mechanisms, feel the support of others, and renew their faith.  For more information and registration please contact mary.fay@rcda.org or call 453-6644


Every Second Sunday is Food for Families Collection Day

 

The second Sunday of each month is designated as Food for Families Sunday.

This is a very important event, since the K of C is attempting to collect as much food as they can so they can reach their goal. For every 1,000 pounds
of food collected they will get a rebate from the Supreme office for $100.

For the fraternal year ending June 30, 2015, we will be getting a rebate of $300 which we will in turn give to the Moreau Community Center.
Please bring food at any time, but especially on the second Sunday of the month so we can reach our goal.

Thank you for your generosity.
