Here at St. Mike's, we are growing to meet the needs of people at every phase in life. Some parents with young children like to take advantage of the child care offered on Sunday mornings in our Little House from 10am-noon. Other parents love being able to have their children with them during the service. Everyone is welcome at St. Mike's!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cafe Picasso (brunch, garden, and pantry) is suspended until further notice. Check back here or visit the Cafe P Facebook page for updates.
Join area residents, faculty, staff and other students for worship in a liturgical tradition. Every Sunday morning at 10:30am we gather to hear sacred readings from the Bible, a short sermon and communion. A small choir made up of students, faculty and associates leads us in joyful song. Students serve as greeters, readers, choir members, acolytes, altar guild members and Eucharistic ministers. Our service is meditative and casual. The word Eucharist comes from a Greek word meaning "thanksgiving." Our Sunday worship service is a time for us to come together in community and give thanks for the great blessings of God in which we all share. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at God's table. Take some time out of your busy week to reflect, pray and deepen your spiritual life in community!
