The worldwide health crisis has brought a lot of hardship and anxiety to families and the whole nation. Please be safe. We are praying for the safety of all our parish families, our country, and our worldwide family.

This coronavirus has of course had a dramatic impact on finances for households, businesses, and organizations. With the cancellation of weekend Masses, St. Michael’s will also suffer an enormous economic loss. At the same time, we are most grateful for the continued giving we have seen this past few weeks. We obviously need your continued support, so that our parish family can continue its ministries of prayer, formation, and outreach to those most in need.

Please consider continuing your Sunday contributions by sending them via mail to the parish office. An alternative would be to use our parish’s online giving capability. You can enroll and give online at https://stmichaelcanton.weshareonline.org/.

Don’t let technology get in the way! If you need any assistance - or if you need us to enter data directly - please call Bruce Gordon in the parish office at (330) 492-3119, extension 211. Thank you.
