Our Vision of Parish Life
A concrete expression of a Catholic Christian Faith Community.
We provide the opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist and the Sacraments;
We learn from Christ and share Christ’ teachings with others;
We develop a community centered in charity and justice;
We spend time with each other at parish functions designed to promote a communal life;
We encourage the formation of small group gathering for prayer, study, and socializing;
We welcome new members with a spirit of hospitality;
We provide the buildings necessary for worship, education, and community;
We accept the responsibility of sharing our time, talent, and treasure to live out these pledges for the glory of God and the good of our neighbor.
Thanksgiving Food Collection
Each year St. Michael the Archangel helps to fill several food banks in the Aurora area as well as helping our parishioners. This year, the process will look a little different. We will not hand-out the paper bags, and the groceries will be dropped-off in the parking lot on November 21st & 22nd. For the list of food items, click here.
Cherry Creek Nursing Home Christmas Gift Collection
Take a moment and visit our giving tree and pick-up a Christmas tag. Each tag will have the name and gift for someone at the Cherry Creek Nursing Home. Once you have picked-up your tag, be sure to register your choice on the clip board next to the tree. You can also visit the tree during the week when the crowds are sparse to pick-up your tag.
Please call Kathie at 720-678-4177 with your questions. You can also e-mail Christmas.firstname.lastname@example.org to get a name.
Thank you for helping in making this Christmas special for the residents!
In previous year’s we have asked for Turkeys, to help complete our Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets for Parishioners and Aurora residents in need. This year, we are asking for gift cards instead. If you would like to donate a gift card from King Soopers, Safeway, Walmart or Target, simply bring it to the Parish Office. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness!
