This ministry welcomes those who are new to Saint Michael, including visitors, new members, and those who transfer from other Episcopal churches.
Newcomers are incorporated into our parish family in several ways:
Newcomers' Luncheons with the Rector
The Welcome Ministry sponsors two luncheons each year for all those who are visitors, regular visitors or new members. If you are new to Saint Michael, please join us for lunch and a time of conversation about this parish and the ways you can be engaged in ministry.
Every fall and spring, Saint Michael offers an adult Inquirer's Series for those interested in joining the church. Even if you’re a life-long Episcopalian, this is the best way to learn about Saint Michael and meet others new to the parish. The series takes place every Sunday from 10-11a.m. in the Parlor and concludes with confirmation. We practice a generous Christianity at St. Michael that invites all kinds of questions about every aspect of faith. As an Inquirer, we will help you journey more deeply into God, Jesus, the Bible, the Church, and things that really matter. Led by the Reverend Michael Dangelo along with clergy and lay ministers, our Inquirers' Series is for all seekers – newcomers, long-time churchgoers, skeptics, or those who haven't thought about their faith in a long time.
The schedule for Winter Confirmation is as follows:
Wednesday, January 8th -6:30-8:00 p.m. potluck dinner & confirmation rehearsal
Sunday, January 12th - Adult Confirmation (during the 11 a.m. service)
The schedule for Spring Confirmation is as follows:
Wednesday, April 30th - 6:30-8p.m. potluck dinner & confirmation rehearsal
Sunday, May 4th - Adult Confirmation (during the 11 a.m. service)
Knowing the names of the people in your church home is an important piece of becoming involved. Please make sure you wear your nametag on Sunday mornings or when you are at any Saint Michael event. To order a nametag, sign up at the reception desk in the South Lanai.
If you are interested in transferring your membership from another church to Saint Michael and All Angels, please contact Celise Stephenson (Church Registrar) for more information on how this process works. She can be reached by email or at #214-363-5471 ext. 223
