Feast of St. Michael and All Angels

September 29th


Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels takes place on Thursday, September 29th


The Feast of St. Michael and All Angels or Michaelmas is a day in the Western Christian liturgical year that occurs on 29 September. In medieval England, Michaelmas has delineated time and seasons such as the ending of the harvest and beginning of making out financials accounts for the year. The name Michaelmas comes from a shortening of "Michael's Mass," in the same style as Christmas (Christ's Mass) and Candlemas (Candle Mass, the Mass where traditionally candles used throughout the year would be blessed).


Although very little is known about the Archangel Michael, in Christianity he is known as the greatest of all the Archangels and is honored for defeating Satan in the war in heaven. He is one of the principal angelic warriors, seen as a protector against the dark of night, and the administrator of cosmic intelligence.


In Anglican and Episcopal tradition, there are three or four archangels in its calendar for 29 September feast for St. Michael and All Angels: namely Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, and often, Uriel. The Bible itself identifies only Michael as "the archangel" (Jude:9).

Outreach: Serving the Community



Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.
