Prayer Meetings - (Twice a month)

Join us on the 1st and 3rd Monday's of the month at 7:00 PM at St. Michael's Church. Anyone from the parish and community is welcome to join us for a time of singing, teaching, and prayer. Our next meeting is Monday, January 18. Call Elizabeth if you have any questions or need more information 412-374-3980.
A parish newsletter is sent via email by a parishioner every Sunday and when there are special events at the parish. If you are interested in being added to the list, sign up on our online form here. Your email address will not be shared with others and all names added are BCC'ed when emails are sent.
Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD (CLOW) is in need of volunteers to share the Word of the Lord with the children of our Parish during the 11:00 Mass. The Leader and the children leave the church before the Liturgy of the Word begins and congregate in DeLuca Hall to break open the Word of God. The schedule is done in two to three month intervals. The leaders are usually scheduled once a month as long as we have enough volunteers to rotate. Please consider sharing your faith with our 4 year old to 1st graders during the Mass. If interested please contact Cindy Capell who is in charge of the scheduling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of an ongoing effort to keep record of our NAM Alumni we would like to take this opportunity to ask each of you who have graduated from our school to complete the information found on the flyer in today’s bulletin. Throughout the years, we have changed and developed many different aspects within our school community and are eager to share these events. In previous years, we have held alumni events and would like to continue this tradition. Our school would like to keep our alumnus informed of all of the remarkable changes and invite you to join in our efforts and celebrations. We appreciate the continued support of our school and parish families as well as the many benefactors of NAM. Please feel free to contact our Advancement Director, Jennifer Speranza at 412-373-0889 X24 or by email at speranza@ namschool.org for any information.
