For your convenience, all photography and portrait viewing will take place at the church where you will have a variety of poses taken, and Lifetouch does not charge a sitting fee.  One pose will be selected for the directory taken on a caramel background.  You will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits but you are not obligated to do so.  Portrait guides and pricing brochures are available at the sign up table that show the new portrait options offered by Lifetouch.  Lifetouch offers both contemporary and traditional posing.  Pets and meaningful items are welcome too! All households that participate will receive a 20% discount off portrait pricing.  Lifetouch will give back to you a $5 coupon to use on your portrait purchase if you donate a non-perishable food item to our food pantry. 

You will also have the opportunity to invite your extended family and have portraits made with everyone together.  Just schedule together and add additional time slots for each of your extended family units.  We are hoping for 100% participation.

Earth Care Prayer

The St. Michael Parish Earth Care Team offers this prayer for your reflection.  You might pray it every day this week.


What A Thing It Is

What a thing it is
to sit absolutely alone,
in the forest, at night,
cherished by this wonderful, unintelligible,
perfectly innocent speech,
the most comforting speech
in the world,
the talk that rain make by itself 
all over the ridges,
and the talk of the watercourses
everywhere in the hollows!
Nobody started it,
nobody is going to stop it.
It will talk as long as wants, this rain.
As long as it talks
I am going to listen.

Published in ”Prayers for the Earth” by Benetvision.  The prayer is by Thomas Merton, Trappist monk of the Abbey of Gethsemani, KY, a poet, social activist, and mystic.

St. Michael Earth Care Team is looking for new members to be a part of our team.  Meetings are generally held quarterly; dates vary.  If you are interested in becoming a member or learning more about the Earth Care Team, please contact Dave Smith at smithd86@msu.edu or the parish office at 517-627-8493.

St. Michael Parish Scrip Program

We are pleased to share some exciting news about a program our organization offers. It is called “Scrip”.  The program that works while you shop. 

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money”. In other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. Hundreds of popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including Meijer, Shell Gas, Speedway, Cuginos and many, many others.

The program is simple.  Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families, like yours, buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and you and our school share the difference/rebate. Our school retains 14% of the discount, which goes towards the annual school budget and helps to cover expenses to run the program. Our families keep the remaining 86% of the discount. This amount may be applied to any of our programs offered at St. Michael.

School Tuition                                     School Endowment Fund
Preschool Tuition                                Parish Endowment Fund
