Come out and enjoy St. Francis Xavier’s Fish Fry each Friday during Lent, 5-7pm.  The menu includes fish, fries, slaw, fried biscuits, drinks & desserts.   Thanks to everyone for your support.

Knight of Columbus Fish Fry at St. Michael
Beginning the first Friday of Lent from 5:00pm-7:00pm the K of C will be having their Fish Fries.  The menu will include fried or baked cod fish, fries, mac and cheese, vegetable, dessert and drink for $8.50.  The Knights of Columbus use some of the money they make to help with maintenance and projects for the school and church buildings.  We all need to help support them by donating a dessert for the fish fries.

Dear Parishioners,
As we enter into the celebrations of Holy Week we are encouraged to immerse ourselves in the events we remember through the rituals of the Church.  While these days are not regarded as an 'Obligation'   each of us should regard this week as a time to grow in faith and in our understanding of who we are as the Church.  We are so much more than a group of people who gather on a weekend, we are more than a social club, We are the Mystical Body of Christ called to be a leaven for society, a source of grace and hope for the world!  We cannot do this without the life of our God flowing through us and knowledge of His love permeating everything we do.  Our starting place should be at the side of Christ our saving grace.  We do more this week than just call to mind events of the past, as Church, as Christ's body we take part in these events themselves, walking with and among the disciples as they enter with Jesus into the holy city, around the room sharing in the new Passover meal, praying and sleeping with Jesus and the disciples in the garden, fleeing in fear standing off by ourselves watching as our Lord is humiliated, beaten and killed, participants in this mockery of Jesus, and finally astounded by the empty tomb.  This is a week filled with emotions.  May each of us find ourselves caught up in these events and be changed by what awaits us.
God grants us all the blessings of this holy time and gives us courage to boldly live more fully our Faith.
For those who are traveling, please be safe and don't forget what this time is about, be 'Catholic' in name and deed wherever you may find yourselves.
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.
