The World Apostolate of Fatima's Centennial U.S. Tour for Peace is underway and coming to our parish!
The historic tour, marking the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, will feature the world-famous International Pilgrim Virgin Statue, traveling worldwide for nearly 70 years.
St. Michael’s is hosting the tour on June 9, 2016 from 3pm-8pm. It will be an extraordinary occasion of healing, hope and grace. Please join us that day to hear the story of Fatima and venerate this beautiful statue that set out from Fatima in 1947 to bring the graces of Fatima to all who might not ever be able to make a pilgrimage to Fatima, Portugal. We bring the pilgrimage to you!
Hundreds and favors and graces, including cures, and countless conversions are associated with the image. The presence of this special Statue (sculpted by Jose Thedim in 1947, based on Sr. Lucia's description of her encounters with Our Lady) is a great gift to our community.

At the moment of Holy Communion
Holy Communion is the real presence of Jesus with us, it means that in each Holy Mass comes the Holy Spirit by the priest. The real Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We as Catholics have to respect that. We have to understand that in there is a Real Presence of our redeemer. We as a Catholic community of St. Michael have to teach our children with our example. For instance, we have to say aloud “Amen” when we receive the Holy Body and Blood of Christ.
Please look at this video below and share it with your friends, it will be really great for all our community. This video has subtitles in many languages and you can choose the best for yourself. This video will teach you the best way to receive Holy Communion, and it will also explain to you why we say “Amen!”.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.
(John 6, 56).
God Bless you.

How important is Eucharistic Adoration? In the words of priest and author, Fr. John A. Hardon, SJ
"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow."
If you could possibly take one of the open hours in our Perpetual adoration chapel and spend some time with the Lord, please let us know.
Here are the open hours:
