Pastor's Welcome

Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church


Hello and welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in Cary, NC! We are a vibrant, dynamic, and diverse Catholic community of nearly 5,000 families. Whether you are new to western Wake county or just new to our parish community, we are grateful that you are here and hope to meet you in person very soon! Please fill out this new member registration form and one of our staff members will get you set up on our parish database, REALM, and get you welcomed into our parish.

We want to meet you! Please come worship with us at one of our weekend Masses and stick around to speak with either me or one of my brother priests. Our hospitality ministers will also be present to welcome you with a smile.

St. Michael parish may be quite large - which we know can at times be intimidating - but rest assured that there are plenty of "pockets" and small groups that make our parish more welcoming to those of all age groups and walks of life. By way of over 70 different social action, prayer, and service ministries, we offer many opportunities to grow as intentional disciples of Jesus Christ, to serve as His hands and feet, to meet lifelong friends, and to grow in knowledge of Him as we journey toward our heavenly homes. 

We understand the importance of forming a robust Catholic education. Whether it's St. Michael Preschool, StMS (Pre-K - Grade 8), youth ministry, adult or youth faith formation classes, or mission speaker events, there are plenty of opportunities to grow your faith. If you would like to learn more about our education and formation programs, check out our Education page or speak to a staff member.

Since 1963, service to our neighbors has been a hallmark of our parish life. Service is one of our core mission principles, and we strive to reach out in love to even the least of our brothers and sisters. These programs include our Sister Parish in Honduras, Habitat for Humanity, Orphans, Adoption, & Foster Care (OAFC) and so many others! If you are interested in learning more about our annual service projects and campaigns, take a look around our Ministries & Volunteers page.

Here at St. Michael, we are in the business of making saints! I look forward to assisting you in every facet of your faith journey.

In Christ,

Fr. Michael Burbeck
