Summer time Women's Faith Sharing
We'll meet Tuesday mornings from 9-10:30 at St. Michael's youth room - watch for signs. Come join us as we share our faith journeys. This summer we will be reading and discussing the book " Praying Our Goodbyes: A Spiritual Companion Through Life's Losses and Sorrows" by Joyce Rupp. The book is $15.00. Let's pray for each other as a community, our ACC, the church, and our world, listening to the Holy Spirit in each of us. We will use social distancing and wearing masks as recommended. Friends welcome!

The BeFriender Ministry has experienced some challenges since mid-March due to Covid19. We stopped making home visits and visits to hospitalized parishioners, however we continued to visit BeFriendees by phone. During June, some BeFrienders/BeFriendees have felt comfortable with resuming home visits. We will continue to monitor the virus situation.
2019 visit information: During 2019 there were ten (10) BeFrienders at St. Michael’s Parish. Eight (8) BeFrienders made one hundred fifty (150) home visits to seventeen (17) persons and 205 hours were spent on these home visits. In addition, two (2) BeFrienders visited fifty-five parishioners at the St Cloud Hospital. We also hosted two Newcomer Welcome Sundays.
We continue to explore ways the BeFriender Ministry can serve the parish. If you have questions about the BeFriender Ministry or know of a family member/friend who would benefit from this ministry, please give a call to Judith Knutson at 252-9992 or 248-6071.
