Sunday “Blog Mass”
St. Michael’s continues to bring you a virtual “blog mass” complete with a video recording of the sermon. This liturgy is designed for home devotions, and it’s super easy! First, take a moment to quiet your heart and prepare for worship. Then simply begin at the beginning! Click on the videos to watch the sermon and hymns.
Mass is celebrated at 9:30am on Sundays. Seating inside the church as well as outside on the lawn will be available. Shade tents and chairs will be provided for lawn seating. (You are still welcome to bring your own chair.) The in-person Sunday evening 4:00 pm Evensong will continue outdoors.
Daily Morning and Evening Prayer will continue online.
Daily Mass: Tuesday through Friday at 12pm and Saturday at 5:30pm have resumed inside the chapel.

Frequently Asked Questions
Updated September 2022
Why only one Sunday morning service?
There is actually theological precedence for one Sunday morning service — that is, the body of Christ gathering together as a single organism for worship. This is an ancient practice that continues in many churches to this day. We continue to have more-than-enough capacity to accommodate a single indoor service with the additional outdoor seating.
Additionally, there remains the practical challenge of pulling together enough volunteer resources to support more than one Sunday service. The pool of volunteers that serve as Sunday ushers, acolytes, readers and altar guild has been greatly reduced during the pandemic. Our base of faithful volunteers needs to grow more than two-fold in order to support an additional Sunday service.
Last, but certainly not least, having experienced the physical separation of lock-down, being able to worship and hang out together after church as one body has proved beneficial to the spiritual and relational health of the St. Michael’s parish family.
Do I have to sit inside?
Nope. Outdoor seating with sound amplification will remain an option for the foreseeable future. This includes the priest delivering communion to those seated outdoors.
Will the online service still be available?
Yes! The online “Solemn Blog Mass” is here to stay. Please continue to share this digital resource!
How about Saturday evening and daily masses?
Saturday Mass will continue in-person in the Chapel at 5:30pm. Daily Mass (Tuesday through Friday) will continue in-person in the Chapel at 12pm.
