Earth Care Corner - A Prayer for Our Earth

Earth Care Prayer

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


Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flow'rs before Thee
Op'ning to the Sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
fill us with the light of day

All Thy works with joy surround Thee
Earth and heav'n reflect Thy rays
Stars and angels sing around Thee
center of unbroken praise
Field and forest, vale and mountain
Flow'ry meadow, flashing sea
chanting bird and flowing fountain
call us to rejoice in Thee

First two verses of the lyrics by Henry van Dyke for the tune Ode to Joy by Lugwig van Beethoven, taken from the Wikipedia website.

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 or another families tuition.
