Dear People of St. Michaels,
Thank you for all of your cards and expressions of sympathy upon Denny's passing. He was always so proud of being a member of our parish and that he counted his forefathers as original members.
Thanks to Fr. Jake for the beautiful Mass and homily and for his kindness to us during our difficult time. Thanks to Fr. George for his caring. Thanks to the servers and to Thom for the lovely music. Thank you also to those who prepared and served the delicious dinner for us to continue sharing Denny's memory.
We are blessed by your kindness!

“AROUND OUR PARISH”
Dear Parishioners of St. Mike’s Ridge & St. Isidore:
It has come to my attention that someone is trying to scam other parishioners of our parish using my name. They are doing this via an e-mail or text from another phone number other than my own, whether it be the phone number of the Rectory or my personal cell number. Rest assured, I would never contact anyone of you in any manner requesting monetary funds of any form, whether it be cash, check, account numbers, gift cards, etc. If you are contacted in such a manner, please HANG UP AND DO NOT RESPOND!
