Dear Parishioners,
As we begin the month of May we are surrounded by new life. We see it in the leaves emerging on the trees, in the flowers that have been hidden in the earth and in the birds chirping. God revealing in the world of nature what He calls us to, what His love promises us. The Living Word of God, Jesus, offers us hope and promises fulfilled. His death sets us free, His resurrection brings us home. The Easter celebration is realized when each of us begins a new day eagerly, knowing that we have life to live, tasks to accomplish for Him and all out of love. The plan of God for us is not drudgery, illness, suffering, fear. His plan is that our lives be filled with love and peace. When the darkness covers us He calls us to light. Like the new growth we see in nature, our lives blossoms because we are united to Him. Our lives become so much more when we strengthen our bond to Him especially in the sacraments of the Church and in service to one another.
    Next weekend several of our young parishioners will receive Holy Communion for the first time. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers as they prepare these next few days. May they always hunger for The Lord Jesus and have the opportunity to receive Him weekly, daily, until He receives the in Heaven.
A reminder!  If you are going into the hospital, planned or emergency, please let me know by calling the parish office. If you would like for me to visit please leave your name and the hospital you are going to. Or make sure you family knows to contact us. The Divine Physician ( JESUS) is eager to bring  healing  and peace, to be present with you.
Finally, receiving The Lord in Holy Communion is a sacred moment. Remember the fast of one hour before receiving and please don't presume that chewing gum is okay as you approach to receive the Precious Body and Blood of The Lord Jesus.
God bless all of you and keep up the 'good'  work.
Fr. Tully

Have a Happy and Blessed Mother's Day

"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.
