Saint Michael Catholic Church

Welcome to St. Michaels Parish

Rev. Arturo Chagala, Parochial Administrator

We welcome you here on our website and in person!
Founded in 1831 by the first wave of Irish immigrants coming to America for the sake of religious freedom and economic opportunity, and site of the Nativists riots of 1844, St. Michael’s today continues to serve the needs of its resident members, its alumni and the new immigrants from all over the world who are still coming to our neighborhood.

  • Sharing the good News of Jesus in our lives.
  • Acts of charity, attending to our parishioner needs.
  • We proclaim Jesus as Lord almighty.
