Since 1703...A Community of Prayer, Compassion and Justice; United in Diversity... A Founding Parish of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey
The focus of St.
Michaelís Church ministries is the enrichment of our journeys of faith through the
dedication of our time, talents and efforts in the service of our Lord.
The beautiful fresh flowers and white linens which adorn the altar at each worship service are made possible through the efforts of the Altar Guild, a volunteer organization of members of our congregation, serving the parish.
Altar servers are men and women from the congregation who assist the priest, and other clergy, at the altar during worship services and special liturgy.† These individuals are volunteers, and serve on a rotational basis.
Chalice Bearers are congregational volunteers who assist in the distribution of Holy Communion at worship services.
Episcopal Church Women (ECW) is a volunteer organization of congregational women empowered to do Christ's work in the world.† Each year, ECW members provide leadership for an assortment of projects with the goal of serving the parish directly, as well as the greater community through our parish.† Click here for information on the national ECW organization.
On a continuous basis, St. Michael's solicits food donations for distribution to agencies addressing the dietary shortfalls of residents of our community.† To participate in this program, please deposit donations of canned, dry, or other non-perishable food items in collection bins located in the main sanctuary, or in the coffee room.
MINISTRY OF THE WORD
To promote inclusion of all parish members during worship celebration, lay readers from our congregation are invited to participate in the proclamation of God's word.† These volunteers convey first and second readings, and responsorial psalm at our Sunday liturgy, as well as other services.
