Happy Michaelmas!

The big weekend is here! Bishop Guerra is visiting us from Guatemala, the big, free Arizona Baroque concert is tonight at 7 PM, and the actual Mass of Michaelmas is going to be an extravaganza!

Rehearsing the procession.

Our best dragon ever is waiting in the wings, and soon may have to give up his candy to St. Michael's children!

 Puff waits patiently.

The church website has been updated with current info on the Music page, an expanded History page and a detailed listing (with more to come) of church groups and activities on the Ministries page.

And we have new publications! The Michaelmas issue of The Messenger is ready, all 12 pages of it, with articles by Fr. Joel Ireland, Michael Leeming and others, looking back across the history of St. Michael's and also forward into the future. There is also a new brochure of church ministries and activities, a two page history of St. Michael's to match the History web page, and a print only, full color pamphlet on the Art of St. Michael's!

So as you can see, we've been busy, getting ready for the Big Weekend, and now it's here! All we need now is YOU! Sign up on Facebook to let us know you're coming to tonight's concert, or just show up, and bring someone with you! And don't forget to attend our Michaelmas procession and High Mass. There will be a Family Mass session at 9 AM, and the main mass will start at 9:30. Mision San Miguel will be art of this mass, with two Bishops participating, special music and a Confirmation. Be there!
