Dear Parishioners,
    Now that I am well rested from my week away, it’s time to get back to work.
This past year has been different to say the least!  Getting use to a new situation, a new parish and ‘new’ people has been an interesting experience, one  a pastor experiences every time he is moved.  It has it’s challenges, it’s own particular life, both social and spiritual.  Over this past year since first coming to St. Michael and St. Francis Xavier I have seen an eagerness on your part to renew, to grow and to become more the Body of Christ in our local communities.  This is indeed encouraging and at times daunting for me.  As we continue this journey with Our Lord and the universal Church, let us tackle the future with an eagerness to truly be who we say we are, opening ourselves to the challenges that will come, encouraging each other, welcoming Christ as we welcome those who are returning, those who are looking, and those who are new to our faith community.  Let us open wide the doors not only of our Church, but of our hearts as well.
Keep up the good work and God Bless,
Fr. Tully

The goal of evangelization today is, as always, the transmission of the Christian faith. This task primarily concerns communities of Jesus’ disciples which are organized into particular Churches, diocesan and eparchial, whose worshippers gather regularly for liturgical celebrations, hear the Word of God, celebrate the sacraments — especially the Eucharist — and look to pass on the treasure of faith to the members of their families, communities and parishes. They accomplish this task by proclaiming and bearing witness to the Christian life through the catechumenate, catechesis and works of charity.

(Instumentum Laboris of the Synod on the New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Faith, 2012)

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis is calling for each parish in the archdiocese to have a parish evangelization team, regardless size of the parish or location. Its role is to assist the pastor in the New Evangelization by sharing the Gospel with each of the groups of the New Evangelization - those who do not know Jesus Christ, those whose faith has faded, and "ordinary" Catholics who continually need to deepen their relationship with God. The parish evangelization team can take various forms, as can the activities it facilitates.

"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.
