Important Parish Announcements
 

The Diocese of Youngstown has further updated information and guidance for the gradual return to public liturgies with daily Mass the week of May 25, allowing for a gradual return to weekend Mass May 30 and 31 (Pentecost weekend), with directives for maintaining a safe environment. St. Michael's will have further details on liturgies and procedures at our parish, including what we will be asking of parishioners coming to liturgy, and so we ask that you please ensure that you are registered and receiving emails from the parish, and contact us at (330) 492-3119 or via the form at www.stmichaelcanton.org if necessary.

Please note that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass remains in effect for all Catholics. Understanding the desire of many to return to church, it remains important for those who are at greater risk (because of age or health condition) to refrain from returning until such time they feel comfortable and confident to do so. Also, those who are symptomatic or who have been exposed to another with the virus within 14 days should not attend Mass in accordance with national, state and local health directives. For those who are not able to gather at this time, we will continue to livestream our liturgies online.

Our Temporary Food Pantry serving St. Michael parishioners continues. Please click here for an updated list of items, how to contribute, and how to access this temporary food pantry if you are experiencing food insecurity. To set up an appointment, email Jeff Fricker or call the parish office: (330) 492-3119.

Our parish 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.

If you or someone you know is struggling with anxiety, feeling isolated, or feeling overwhelmed, please contact Julie Sutton at (330) 492-3119 ext. 219 or julie@stmichaelcanton.orgStephen Ministers are avaliable for tele-support!

Eucharistic "Adoration at the Window" continues Monday - Friday, 9am-6pm, in the lower parking lot. Please stay in your vehicle and practice social distancing. Thank you to the Canton Repository for the wonderful article.

Thank you for your continued financial support of our parish, both by mail and online. Like all churches, this situation is hard on St. Michael financially and, of course, it is financially difficult for all parishioners and households. And yet, despite expected lower collections, we have also seen a real commitment from our parishioners to stewardship, including an increase in online giving. This is a sign of a vibrant parish, even in the midst of a difficult situation.
 
Our parish finance council continues to work with Father Benson and Bruce Gordon, our business manager, to monitor the situation, help the parish be responsible financially, while also ensuring that pastoral services remain a priority. If you would like to switch to online giving, please go to 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.
