St. Michael’s Youth Conference – A week of fun, friends and Christian growth, activities such as worship, prayer, and conference sessions help youth ages 13-19 to grow as Christians. The Conference takes place June 7-12, and leaders are Bishop Martins, Fr. Ian Wetmore, Fr. David Halt, and Fr. David Baumann.  Information and registration info is available in the narthex and office.

How to receive Communion – This is Christ’s Body and Blood. Receive the consecrated wafer in your hands and raise it to your mouth, or receive it directly on your tongue. (A gluten-free host is available – let us know if you need this option.) Assist in guiding the Chalice to your lips. If for personal reasons such as illness you wish to receive by “intinction”, leave the host on your palm and the Chalice Bearer will pick it up, intinct and place it on your tongue. Do not intinct yourself – this prevents fingers touching the wine. If you do not wish to receive the chalice, cross your arms over your chest.
