The Parish of Saint Michael the Archangel has received two (2) State Homeland Security grants to improve safety and security around our campuses in Clayton and Franklinville. These projects include panic bars on the doors, improved parking lot lighting, glass breakage alarms, motion sensors, and a closed-circuit television system. In addition, a risk assessment of our campuses was performed and it was suggested that once an event begins in any of our buildings, the exterior doors should be locked. The suggestions generated by the risk assessment survey were shared with the Parish and implementation began when the churches reopened in June 2020. Homeland Security agencies recommend being especially vigilant as Mass first begins and when Mass is ending.
For these reasons, we ask that you try to arrive 5-10 minutes early. The exterior doors will be locked and monitored as Mass first begins. If you are a few minutes late, one of the ushers will let you in. Once the Gospel is proclaimed, the doors will remain closed and locked.

You might have received an e-mail recently from Fr. Larry asking for gift cards or to contact him regarding a personal matter. It's a scam!
Please be aware that I would never ask you to contact me via e-mail regarding a personal matter, nor would I solicit gift cards (or anything) via e-mail.
If I was to ask for the help of the parishioners and / or staff and / or anyone for help with anything, it would be by a direct phone call or at the end of Mass during the announcements (for Parish or Diocesan solicitations), or a direct mailing from the Parish or from me personally for whatever cause.
For your protection, delete these e-mails immediately. If you have a question about it, please call the Parish Office or contact me directly before replying to the e-mail or clicking on any links found in the e-mail.
Did you know that you can submit your weekly contributions via the USPS or even drop them off?
The Parish of Saint Michael the Archangel accepts your weekly contributions via online giving, however, if you prefer, your envelopes can be mailed to or even dropped off at the Parish Office. (If you choose to drop off your envelopes at the Parish Office, please call or e-mail us first and we'll let you know where and how you can drop them off safely.)
Mass Intention Book
& Sanctuary Candles
You will notice from the Mass Intentions on the second page of the bulletin that there are many open Masses during the week …
In this time of COVID-19, social distancing, and closed Parish Offices and churches, you can still request a Mass or Sanctuary candle. (Our Lord is still present in the Tabernacles of both Saint Catherine of Siena and Nativity churches.)
You can call 856-881-9155 or you can e-mail PSMA.Rectory@gmail.com to make your request. You can then send your Mass stipend to the Parish Office via regular mail or drop it off at the Parish Office. (I will give you instructions how to drop off your stipend, if that is your choice, when you call or e-mail the Office … I also ask that your stipend be received at least one (1) week in advance of your requested Mass (so that it can be printed in the bulletin).
Thank you for your continued prayers and support of the Parish during these extraordinary times.
~ Fr. Larry
