A little bit More about St. Michael Parish
St. Michael is a Roman Catholic Church community in the Diocese of Marquette, Michigan. We are a parish blessed with 700+ families. The St. Michael campus includes the Catholic Campus Ministry for Northern Michigan University (CCM) Together we form a vibrant active parish community attempting to live and share the Gospel of Jesus with one another and with those beyond our doors.
A Tithing Parish: In addition to the financial and physical plant support for CCM, St. Michael is a tithing parish and donates 5% of it's annual receipts to regularly support local charitable groups such as Bay Cliff Health Camp, Room at the Inn, the Jansen House, the Care Clinic, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Habitat for Humanity, as well as other groups or individuals in or beyond the Marquette area who are in need.
On August 27,2023, CCM had a welcome back BBQ,hosted by the Knights of Columbus,for students and parishioners. There was about 70 people that attended. A good time was had by all. Click link below to see pictures of that BBQ.
On Sunday, September 10, St. Michael Parish held its picnic. It was a big success. Many individuals gathered in the Zryd center for faith, fellowship and fun and enjoy delicious foods that included brats, hot dogs, potato salad, and bean soup. Outside children enjoyed the use of a bounce house, parachute, and frisbee. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped set up, cook, serve and clean up.
