The mission of Eucharistic Adoration is to promote personal prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Adoration is a form of worship and devotion to Jesus Christ present in the consecrated host.
The regular schedule for Adoration at St. Michael the Archangel Parish is:
Tuesdays: After the 7:00 am Mass until 8:00 pm
Fridays: Begins after the 7:00 am Mass and continues for 24 hours, ending before the Saturday morning Mass at 8:00 am
Annually during Holy Week there is an extended period of time for Eucharistic Adoration. Adoration begins after the 6:00 pm Mass on Palm Sunday and continues until 12:00 am on Holy Thursday.
Adoration is held in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of the Main Church
Recitation of the Rosary is held every Sunday morning prior to the 9:00 am Mass in the Downtown Church.
As part of the ministry of the Rosary Altar Society, the rosary is recited prior to the funeral of the deceased women of the parish.
FAMILY HOLY HOUR
The Family Holy Hour Ministry arranges for benediction and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the second Sunday of each month (September - June) from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm in the Day Chapel of the Main Church at 750 Bright Road. A potluck meal follows in the Auditorium. All are welcome.

NURSING HOME/HOMEBOUND VISITATION
For those in our parish family who are unable to join us for Mass on Sunday due to illness or an accident, we have a committed group of volunteers who will bring the Eucharist to them.
To insure that parishioners are visited when in a nursing home, even if in the nursing home for rehabilitation services, it's helpful if a family member would notify the Parish Office.
For those parishioners who are homebound, visits can be scheduled at the convenience of the person being visited.
Call Debbie Benson at the Parish Office, 419-422-2646
HOSPITAL COMMUNION MINISTRY
The Priests and members of the Hospital Communion Ministry visit parishioners who are hospitalized. The Hospital Communion Ministry takes Communion to hospitalized parishioners every day of the week, except for Saturday.
Because of current government privacy regulations, the hospital can contact the parish only if the patient or family gives permission. To insure that parishioners are visited when hospitalized it is important to let the hospital know your faith, and the desire to receive Communion while hospitalized. Patients or family members are always welcome to call the parish office to inform the staff of a hospital visit and make a request for a visit.
Contact Parish Office, 419-422-2646.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
Formerly referred to as “Last Rites”, the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick previously was most commonly administered to the dying for the remission of sins and the provision of spiritual strength and health. The Church now makes this sacrament available to all Catholics who are gravely ill or are about to undergo surgery recognizing a secondary effect of this sacrament – to help a person recover health. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be repeated as often as necessary.
The priests of our parish are available anytime day or night to administer this sacrament.
Please call the parish office during normal business hours to make arrangements.
In an after hours emergency, please call the Rectory phone, 419-423-8776.
SAINT OF THE DAY
Catholic saints are holy people and human people who lived extraordinary lives. Each saint the Church honors responded to God’s invitation to use his or her unique gifts. God calls each one of us to be a saint.
