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.
CDPHE has launched a COVID-19 Exposure Notification System. This is a new feature on your phone that notifies you if you may have been exposed to someone contagious with COVID-19. By opting in through your iPhone device settings or downloading the app onto your Android device, you can better protect yourself and your
family. Through the service:
Anonymous tokens are shared with other CO Exposure Notifications users using your phone’s bluetooth;
If another user you’ve been in contact with tests positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period, the service will notify you;
If you test positive, you can easily and anonymously notify others to stop the spread of COVID-19; and
Your name, location, IP address, phone number or any other identifying information will not be shared.
Using this service could result in receiving notifications days earlier than you would typically get notified by a contact tracer. The more Coloradans who participate, the better we can contain this virus and slow its spread.
For more information about CO Exposure Notifications, visit addyourphone.com.
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!
