St. Michael Prayer Experiences

In addition to our celebration of the Eucharist (Mass), which we also livestream, our tradition includes many ways of praying. Recognizing that so many are looking for ways to pray from home, St. Michael the Archangel Liturgy Committee invites you to join us for these upcoming and recent prayer experiences.

Additionally: various prayerbooks are available in both our upper and lower Gathering Space, including Lenten books for adults and families, and also Give Us This Day, Living Faith, and At Home With the Word.

We invite you to pray with us the Stations of the Cross every Friday in Lent at 7pm. These particular prayers are taken from the Stations of the Cross for the Life of the World.
