A Note from The Pastor's Desk

Note from Father Wayne

Posted on with 4 Comments

Dear St. Michael’s Parish Family,

I hope and pray that you are doing well. You are sincerely and lovingly in my heart at every moment in prayer. I miss all of you and I truly look forward to celebrating Mass with you in our beloved church sooner rather than later. Even though we do not know how long we will be separated from one another in prayer and worship we do know that Christ is loving us and guiding us in every way.

I trust in that and I believe in that with all of my heart. I was very grateful and humbled to offer Mass online for everyone this past weekend. It is the intentionality of my heart to continue to offer Sunday mass online every weekend until we are together again. You will be able to pray the Mass with me by watching on our Facebook page, our parish website (www.stmichaelsel.org), or through an email that is sent to all parishioners who have signed up for that service through our parish office.

If you are a "registered parishioner" and did not receive the link for the Sunday Mass this past weekend in your email and would like to sign up, please email our parish office with your name, street address, and email address. You will then receive all future emails from our parish office for each online Sunday Mass during this time of separation and you will receive further important communication from Saint Michael’s Parish as well.

It is the hope of my heart to take all of the intentions for the previous week and pray for all of our loved ones on each Sunday online Mass. Those intentions are sacred and important. Those we love who have passed deserve to be loved in that sacred way. I will make sure that we have the grace filled invitation from God to love them during each online Mass.

On this upcoming Sunday I will make sure that all of the intentions for the past two weeks will be prayed for and embraced with love.

I pray that we are together again soon and know that I love you with all of my heart.

Love and Prayers,
Fr. Wayne

We are so Blessed that St.Michael’s has the Gift of You and Beth to “feeed” us Spiritually during this difficult time. Being able to celebrate Mass with You gives us “food” as we are quarantined. Even your “youngest” parishioners miss You, the smile, “fist bumps”, and Love you radiate. BlessYou and keep You safe and Healthy

Thank you for offering weekly Mass online. Hal and I stopped what we were doing and sat and watched you and Beth. We are very fortunate to have you both in our lives during this difficult time. We pray for our St.Micheal family that all remain healthy and safe. Love to you and yours....

Thinking of you, Fr Wayne and Beth. Your past sermons have kept me going these past few weeks. Looking forward to better times again soon. God Bless You.
