Much has happened in the past many months to affect our world and parish community. As a pastoral team at St. Michael the Archangel, please know our priority is supporting our parishioners and families.

Public Masses Resume

Archbishop Vigneron announced on May 12, that public Masses would resume by May 19.  St. Michael the Archangel began Masses on the weekend of May 23 and 24, with a limited seating capacity.  On June 22, Masses were moved from the church to the school gym for the start of the Restoring God’s House construction project.  Seating in the gym has been setup following the guidelines from the AOD's Directives of Resumption of Public Masses: Phase II.  


Archbishop Vigneron has extended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation for all the faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit, as well as for all travelers during their time within the territory of the Archdiocese of Detroit, until Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021.   While the dispensation from the grave obligation to attend Sunday Mass is in effect, all baptized Catholics are reminded of the grave necessity they have to keep holy the Lord’s Day.
