This is our celebration of the 5th Sunday of Lent at St. Michael the Archangel Church in Canton, Ohio. Our pastor, Father Benson Okpara, is presider and preacher, with an important message to the parish.
 

While the sound is low at the beginning, please know that it is much better for the readings, homily, and Eucharistic prayer. We encourage our parishoners to pray Mass at any of our Sunday times (8:30am, 11am, 5:30pm), if possible. This will allow us to pray together at the same time and be together spiritually, until we are again able to be together physically. (Nevertheless, this video will still be available "on demand" so as many can participate as possible.) Please see resources for preparing for Mass, other prayer tools, and also important parish announcements, below. Read Father Benson's Invitation.

Online Giving

The worldwide health crisis has brought a lot of hardship and anxiety to families and the whole nation. Please be safe. Follow instructions from the Center for Disease Control and Ohio Public Health Authorities. Thank you for doing your part to protect yourself, your families, and the most vulnerable. 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. 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.
