Dear brothers and Sisters in Christ,
  We begin this period of Ordinary Time with "the call." This is an important theme that appears numerous times in the Holy Scriptures.  This Call is not on a phone or even spoken out loud, necessarily, and sometimes is very subtle and other times right in your face, so to speak.  This call comes from God to each of us just as it did for Samuel in the temple and Simon Peter. God is offering us an opportunity to life.  Our loving God calls us day and night, at work or school, or home or wherever we may be.  It doesn't come just once but continually even after we believe we have answered.  This great calling is for you and me to live more fully as the adoptive "chosen" children of God.  God calls to every person in every place and through all time.  With Samuel let us answer, "Speak Lord, your servant is listening."
    In a short while we will begin working on our new pictorial directory.  You will receive an announcement about this shortly over the phone.  The directory is an opportunity to get that Family portrait for the living room wall, or for Grandma and Grandpa.  It also helps the parish recognize and become familiar with all our members.  Please take advantage of this opportunity.  I have found that, for me, the directory is a way to get to know you parishioners and your faces not just your names. 
    Also we will be conducting a time and talent survey in the near future.  Each of us as parishioners are responsible for and challenged to do the work of the Church at St. Michael's and St Francis Xavier.  While financial support is important for the material side of this work, a sharing of your time and talent and committing to this sharing is as important if not more so.  So prayerfully consider what God might be calling you to do for the glory of His name and the good of our parishes.
God Bless and keep up the 'good' work.
Fr. Tully

"You saw how the Lord, your God carried you, as a parent carries his child, all along your journey until you arrived at this place"  Deuteronomy 1,31

Welcome To St. Michael & St. Francis Catholic Parishes In Northern Clark County!

For a 150 years the people of St. Michael & St Francis have celebrated the presence of God in the towns and rural community of norther Clark County.  We are a pilgrim people guided by the proclamation of the Scriptures and strengthend by the grace of God in the Eucharist. We welcome new members through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.  We seek reconciliation with all through the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  We ask God's blessings upon those who commit themselves in the Sacrament of Marriage.  We celebrate God's presence in both Word and Sacrament.

Jesus taught us a message of forgiveness.  And so, we seek an openess to the grace of reconciliation.  Part of the "Good News" is that we don't have to burden ourselves with hatred and resentment.  Through the Spirit of the Risen Jesus it is possible to move beyond bitterness and exclusion of others.  With the grace of the Holy Spirit we can find God's presence in every human being.

An authentic spiritual journey is more than just prayer.  It also includes action.  As Jesus chose to be a servant of all, we seek to serve our community.  Through programs of outreach and participation in community activities we try to give credibility to our faith.  We are not yet Saints in heaven.  We are sinners seeking the grace and guidance of God. 

We hope that this webiste will be an aid to all the people of our community.  May it be an aid to your own journey of faith.
