In memory of one of our former rectors at Saint Michael and All Angels, the Robert E. Ratelle lecture was established in 2004. Fr. Ratelle was deeply interested in biblical theology and ethics and encouraged bringing speakers to Saint Michael who can make these topics relevant to faithful daily Christian living. We invite you to mark your calendar for the entire lecture series. We look forward to seeing you!
