Parish News and Events


Dominick Albano returns to lead the St. Michael 2020 Discipleship Workshop.

February 6 & 7 

6:30-9:00 PM

Zryd Parish Center


Dominick Albano has always had a heart in ministry for true evangelization: sharing good news with people who are not already deeply engaged with the Catholic faith. During the course of this two day workshop, we will dive into the true meaning of Evangelization, practical how-to’s for individuals who want to share the faith with their friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors and the simple but important strategies a parish can put in place to be sure they are bringing in more people, adding to their numbers, and growing like God intends them to do!

Coffee Klatch

Wednesdays in the Zryd Parish Center

Koffee Klatch is German for casual conversation over coffee. Please stop by the Zryd Parish Center on Wednesdays, 2-4 PM to socialize with fellow parishioners, students, and friends. Bring your cribbage boards or knitting or other hobbies...or just come visit with friends. Let's share a cup of coffee in friendship and maybe even complete one of those projects you have been meaning to get to. No cost except maybe a laugh or a smile. Everyone Welcome! Bring a friend! We'll have the coffee ready!

Reflections of a Eucharistic Minister

When the question was asked: “Would you consider being a Eucharistic Minister?” my first thought was commitment, obligations, meetings, a schedule and once I say yes “they” will keep calling and expecting more. I admit I hesitated.


What I found was that I was scheduled for the Mass I regularly attend.  There is one training (re-commitment) every three years. I am asked if I have any conflicts before the next months’ schedule comes out and if something unexpected comes up, there is someone to call if I need a sub.


I want to express what I feel in being a Eucharistic Minister. Most people think of it as a service to the church-I don’t. Some people think you have to feel worthy to be one-I don’t. I get something out of it that makes me a better person.


When I am standing there and you come forward, I look into your eyes. When our eyes meet I see reverence, pain, sadness, twinkles, joy, life, happiness, tiredness, and sometimes tears. I smile and most of you smile back. We connect. I distribute the host and I see your hands. I love your hands whether gnarled, arthritic, innocent, perfect, calloused or aged. I think I love the calloused ones the most. I know what it took to make them that way. You see, when I place “The Body of Christ” in your hands, what I see is the Christ in you and that makes the Christ in me stronger.


Thank you, Colleen

The Equal Exchange Program

Why it matters and how it helps.

We know many have been enjoying the Equal Exchange Coffee served every weekend after Mass. St. Michael's Equal Exchange program helps Catholic Campus Ministry at NMU, but  it also:

  • nurtures a community of dedicated individuals who believe that honesty, respect, and mutual benefit are integral to any worthwhile endeavor,

  • allows farmers the means to raise crops while at the same time protect and improve valuable ecosystems,

  • helps small farmers and their families gain more control over their economic futures,

  • educates consumers about trade issues affecting farmers,

  • provides high-quality foods that nourish the body and the soul,

  • supports a company that remains controlled by the people who do the actual work.


This program offers CCM income and sustainability and you a great way to support both CCM and Equal Exchange alike.  Organic coffee, and tea products are available for sale year round in St. Michael’s Gathering Space. So, pick up your favorite items any time it is convenient to you.  Simply stop in, pick your treat and using the pre marked donation envelopes, drop your donation in the office mail slot. It’s easy!  This time of year, Equal Exchange makes a thoughtful end the year gift for a teacher and Father's Day alike.
