WELCOME TO ST. MICHAEL'S

A big church with a small family feel

Think of your favorite place in the world...the place that makes you stop, take a deep breath in, and sigh with the relief of being home. A place where you can be yourself, be vulnerable, and be truly content.

We hope that's what you'll feel when you walk into our church.

Whether it's your first time ever, your first time in a while, or your first time today, we welcome you. And even more importantly, Jesus welcomes you.

WHO WE ARE

St. Michael's is a Roman Catholic community called by God to discipleship through worship, education, and service. We strive to be a place that exudes the joy, peace, and mercy of Christ.

WORSHIP

Worship is how we praise God! Our primary form of worship (and the main reason we exist!) is the Mass, but we also offer the sacraments as a way to enter into deeper relationship with God.

EDUCATION

What good is Good News if you don't share it? With our vibrant preschool, school, and numerous formation offerings for all ages, you could say we're pretty passionate about sharing our faith.

SERVICE

One of the most tangible ways we can love God is by loving our neighbor. That's why you'll find so many ways to get involved and give back, not just in the parish, but also in the larger Cary community.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

St. Michael's is a Roman Catholic community. What exactly does that mean?

It means we believe in one God the Creator; His Son, Jesus, who died and rose to save humanity from sin; and the Holy Spirit, who guides us.
It means we are dedicated to living out the example that Jesus set in the Bible on loving God and others.
It means we follow the Church's teachings on what it means practically to be a Christian in daily life.

The most fundamental aspect of our faith, however, is that the Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Not familiar with Catholics' belief in the Eucharist? The resources on this page can be very helpful for beginning to learn more!

HOW WE LIVE THIS OUT

Our goal is that your experience here at Mass on Sunday is just the beginning. We want to equip you to take what you gain here out into the world, which is why we focus on formation and action.

We believe that spiritual education is a lifelong process, which is why you'll find opportunities for formation from birth to adulthood.

We also take seriously the command to love God by loving others, and our numerous social action opportunities allow us to serve those in need in all walks of life: the abused, the impoverished, the incarcerated, and the sick.

One of the words we hear most about St. Michael's is "home." And isn't that what you want most in a church community? Here's what else makes us special:

We offer over 60 ministries and groups to grow your faith, give back, and connect with your community.
We have a preschool and school on campus in addition to our traditional faith formation programs.
We have a vibrant Hispanic Ministry and bilingual worship opportunities.

Most importantly, our community is amazing! We love and support one another and grow together in faith.
