Cavalcade of Announcements!

St. Michael’s Annual Parish Meeting will take place

There will two elections:
1. Election of the Vestry: Endorsement of a proposal to retain all current members and the addition of a member from Mision San Miguel.
2. Election of delegates to the Diocesan Convention.

The above is in addition to the usual Wardens’, Head of School, Committee reports and a report from the Nominating Committee on the transition process by Ohia Hodges.

PLEASE NOTE: committee reports need to be submitted to Karen at the church office (mavarin2@gmail.com) by Monday, January 18th to be included in our annual report to the Parish!

Following Mass, a “Festive Brunch” will be served by Chef Andy Bruno in the Smith Parish Center. (Donations will be graciously accepted to defray the cost of the food.)

This is an important Mass and meeting for all St. Michael’s Parishioners to attend and recap the year of 2015 and move expectantly, prayerfully and joyfully into the New Year of 2016.

(Please note:  there will be only one Mass that day.)

St. Michael’s Parish Day School Open House.

Episcopal schools throughout the USA have a tradition of excellence in education in a setting that promotes diversity, academics, and spiritual growth.  If you have or know children who will be in grades K-5 in the coming year, it’s not too early to save the date, Wednesday, January 13th for the St. Michael’s Open House campus event located at 602 N. Wilmot.  This open house is from 9-11am, and provides potential parents with information about how a balanced Episcopal school education is the right match for so many of our children.  For more information or for a tour, please contact Paul Pierce, Director of Admissions, at 722-8478 ext 259, or email: ppierce@stmichael.net.

Help us fill the Epiphany Trunk!

Epiphany Gifts for Primavera.  During the 5 Sundays of Epiphany, please fill the treasure chest in the back of the Church with NEW socks and underwear, toiletries, and new or gently used gloves, hats or caps, sweatshirts, jackets, sweaters, blankets, and other clothing in good condition for distribution to Tucson’s homeless population by Primavera and other programs. Socks and warm outer wear are always critical. What do we mean by "gently used"? If you would be willing to wear the garment yourself without embarrassment, it’s good to give. Last day of collection will be February 7. Thanks to Diane and Joe Tyron for delivering your donations as you fill the chest to overflowing.
