The Episcopal tradition values the role community plays in spiritual formation. It’s at the core of our beliefs and can be found in the very words of our Sunday worship gatherings. While individually we may not have all the answers, or even know what questions we want to ask, we strongly believe that the Holy Spirit is present when two or three are gathered. St. Michael's parishioners are active and engaged. Sharing a meal at the altar or around the dinner table, working alongside one another, learning through scripture together, we greatly value the many ways in which this faith community enriches our lives and draws us closer to God. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome!
During the season of Advent, our focus turns to the practice of Truth Telling, as we continue to lean into the invitation to Become Beloved Community. We invite you to ground yourself in the hopeful truths that are found in revisiting the story of Jesus as Emmanuel, the one who dwells with us.
Adult education at St. Michael's consists of a variety of programs and events. Through study of scripture, small group conversation, and topical presentations, we are always seeking to grow in our faith. All questions and curiosities are welcome! Please check our calendar and social media for the latest offerings.
We intend for the St. Michael's annual Block Party to take place sometime in October, 2022, pandemic restrictions allowing.
What is “The Divine Feminine”? It is the spirit of empathy, connectedness, wholeness, and creativity that dwells within and around us. It is the sacred, sensuous, and invisible presence that urges us to explore, express, and grow. It is the soul’s yearning to connect with the infinite.
In this exhibition, four artists express their interpretations of The Divine Feminine in personal and unique ways. Each focuses on an aspect of The Divine Feminine: the natural world, relationships, the containing vessel, and the shape of the feminine. Drawing on inspiration peculiar to their experiences, the artists produce an array of landscapes of the spirit in nature, figures in relationship, abstract designs of feeling and spirit, and visual evocations of creativity and intuition.Read More »
