It's an age-old question, one you might be tired of hearing. But listen, as two of our parishioners share why they give each year to our Annual Fund.
Have you given prayerful thought to pledging to the operating budget of St. Michael's? More than 401 households have pledged so far, supporting the work we do in our parish and in the world. We hope you will join them in giving to the Annual Fund 2018 campaign. Pledge online today!
If you are new to St. Michael's and are interested in learning more about our parish, we offer a series of required classes to acquaint you with St. Michael's.
Wednesdays, January 10, 17, 24 & 31
These classes are required for all seeking membership in our parish, regardless of denomination. In addition, second set of classes will be held in February for all non-Episcopalians and for parents seeking baptism for their children, when we will explore the Episcopal Church.
Contact: Lee Hayden to register. Child care is provided with advance reservation. If you are undecided about membership, please come learn more about our parish during your time of discernment.

The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and their director Graham Ross present a sumptuous Christmas programme in praise of the Virgin Mary and the coming of the light. Renaissance masterpieces, including Tallis's sublime 'Videte miraculum’ and Hieronymus Praetorius’s Christmas Magnificat (performed with its original interpolated carols) sit alongside more recent much-loved seasonal works, including motets by Howells, Britten, Tavener, Rutter and Ross, and some highly-catchy arrangements guaranteed to put you in the festive mood. A perfect start to the Christmas season.
Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1972, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the world’s leading university choirs. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the Choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing. Former directors have included John Rutter and Timothy Brown. Under the direction of Graham Ross, Director of Music since 2010, it has been praised for its consistently ‘thrilling’ and ‘outstanding’ performances worldwide.
