Thank you for your continued financial support of our parish, both by mail and online. Like all churches, this situation is hard on St. Michael financially and, of course, it is financially difficult for all parishioners and households. And yet, despite expected lower collections, we have also seen a real commitment from our parishioners to stewardship, including an increase in online giving. This is a sign of a vibrant parish, even in the midst of a difficult situation.
Our parish finance council continues to work with Father Benson and Bruce Gordon, our business manager, to monitor the situation, help the parish be responsible financially, while also ensuring that pastoral services remain a priority. If you would like to switch to online giving, please go to

Don’t let technology get in the way! If you need any assistance - or if you need us to enter data directly - please call Bruce Gordon in the parish office at (330) 492-3119, extension 211. Thank you.
