Parish Announcements
 

Please see today's bulletin which includes a financial report as we complete the Fiscal Year, as well as details about our paving and roofing projects.

The paving project will affect parking in the upper and lower parking lots this week. Those attending daily Mass are asked to park in the upper school lot and access the chapel using the sidewalk. We hope to complete this project by next weekend's liturgies. But if not, please use the parking that is available and not blocked off.

Our Year - Round food drive continues, but collections during this week will take place under the carport, also in the upper school parking lot.

Our roofing project will involve temporarily blocking off some walkways, including access to the bell tower entrance. Of course, our main "building project" is how we are building faith!

Our bulletin also includes information about upcoming liturgies, ideas from our stewardship committee, an invitation for those who are interested in becoming Catholic, information about volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, and more. 

To set up an appointment to access the food pantry, please email Jeff Fricker or call the parish office: (330) 492-3119.

Our parish office remains open from 9am - 2pm by appointment. Please call to set up an appointment: (330) 492-3119. If you reach our voicemail, please leave a messsage and we will return your call as soon as we can.

We again thank all who have continued your financial support of the ministries of St Michael Catholic Community. As you have seen in the weekly bulletin, we have been falling behind the needs of normal operations. For example, the month of May was the lowest month for Sunday contributions in the past 5 years, and the month of June was very similar.

Our original contingency financial plans assumed a return to ‘normal’ in August, which we now know was overly optimistic, and we expect that we will continue to see challenging financial trends through next year. Our parish’s Finance Council continues to carefully monitor the financial landscape and provide expert advice, helping us ensure that our parish operations are financially responsible even as we seek to prioritize vibrant parish ministries (see this bulletin for some of those ministries, including Social Justice, Youth Ministry, and or Summer Stewardship Project).

As we consider this new reality, we again thank you for your support as it has been amazing - especially since we know that so many are hurting right now. And, we ask that you review your existing level of support. Use online giving if you can and please increase your contribution where your circumstances permit. You can enroll for online giving at https://stmichaelcanton.weshareonline.org/ | You can also sign up for electronic giving even without going online - see the form in this bulletin, or please contact Bruce Gordon in the parish office with any questions: (330) 492-3119, extension 211; bruce@stmichaelcanton.org.
