"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.
