December 11, 2019
Our 10th Parish Trip was a trip to NYC to see the Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall featuring the Rockettes. It was a cold, winter day and definitely got everyone into the spirit of the season.
Thirty-seven parishioners, their friends, and relations spent the day in NYC for the show, a bit of touring around Rockefeller Center, and dinner at Puglia's Italian Restaurant before making the trip home. It was a wonderful time enjoyed by all!

Parish Feast Day Celebration
Deacon Jim Hogan's Retirement, and
Re-Dedication / Re-Opening
of the Rev. Msgr. Louis F. O'Meara
September 29, 2019
This year, our parish celebrated it's ninth anniversary. Saturday evening, we had our Social in the Saint Michael the Archangel Regional School Gym with 85 parishioners, friends, and family in attendance (see below). On Sunday, the 10:45a Mass was a Children's Mass with our eighth-grade PREP students who assisted at the Mass as greeters, lectors, gift-bearers, and helpers who distributed bulletins at the end of Mass. The Masses this weekend were special because Father Larry got to wear a chasuble donated by a parishioner for this special day. It was also special because we got to say "Thank You" to Deacon Jim Hogan and his wife for their many years of service to the Parish. The Conference Center Grand Re-Opening in Franklinville was held after a summer of renovations and was rededicated as the
Rev. Msgr. Louis F. O'Meara Conference Center in commemoration of Msgr. O'Meara and his work for the parishioners of Franklinville and Clayton and in the building of Nativity Church.
