Sunday Morning at St. Michael's

Main Sanctuary and Virtually
Weekly Formation offerings
All are welcome to gather in the parish hall following worship on Sunday, for a time of sharing our stories, while getting to the core of the Christian story. There is no homework, and no need to have participated in conversation the week before. The intention is for this to be an intergenerational conversation, accessible no matter how much time you’ve spent with Holy Scripture.
Children who are four or older, are invited to follow the second cross to Children’s Worship at the end of our opening processional. Children of any age are welcome, but need to be accompanied by a parent if younger than four. Please be in touch with our Minister of Children and Families, Karen Ruff, [email protected], to learn more about this weekly offering.

The root of the word "liturgy" is "the work of the people." Meaning all that happens in the sanctuary with the community who gathers works because of communal participation.
