American Saints VBS and more!
Happy Summer! I apologize (and maybe you are grateful) for the lack of contact recently. I wanted to share with you some updates as there has been much going on behind the scenes here at St. Michael.
We have most recently been working on rescheduling First Holy Communion and at this point, the families who prepared for the sacrament in 2020 have received a new sign up for those dates.
We have also been working closely with the diocese, who is guiding our re-opening procedures. This week we received the diocesan plan for Phase III which does not impact much of what we are doing right now. By now I expect you have seen in-person Mass has begun at St. Michael. While the livestream option is still available to you, I do encourage you to consider trying returning to Mass. It has been truly wonderful to receive the Eucharist again!

We have not made any definitive plans for fall as of yet. We are hoping we can offer registration for 2020-2021 Faith Formation beginning in mid-August though we are awaiting further guidance from the diocese about what Fall might look like in our parishes. As a staff we have been discussing and weighing all of the options. That being said, we would like to know how you are feeling about returning to faith formation at St. Michael. Please take a few minutes to share with us your thoughts by completing the Elementary Survey below:
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL:
I sent out a survey regarding offering an online VBS and there was very little interest. It seems most people are zoomed out! As a result, I am sharing a fun VBS below that you can use at home and teach your children about the American Saints.
