Mount St. Michael
     Mount St. Michael: Celebrating 100 Years - Tradition Endures

The Mount’s Centennial (1915-2015)

Our Centennial celebration began on Sunday, August 24, when we commemorated the 100th anniversary of the ground-breaking of Mount St. Michael at the Annual Parish Picnic. The climax of the day came when 100 balloons were released in the courtyard and sailed off over the city, each with a note attached that can be redeemed for a souvenir. Be sure to check out the Centennial brochure and Centennial poster-calendar of events. Check back in the weeks ahead for more information about this year-long celebration.

DOWNTOWN FATIMA ROSARY MARCH – On the 13th of each month, from May to October, we have a Rosary March, beginning at the corner of Mallon and Howard at 6:30 p.m. All are invited to take part in this powerful prayer and important witness to Faith. Please dress appropriately to this religious event, i.e. women & girls, please wear dresses; men and boys, no shorts.

WARNING – For the sake of safety and security, some outlying areas of the Mount have been designated “No Trespassing”zones. Mind the signs and stay away. If anyone trespasses, the sheriff will be called and we will have to press charges against the trespasser.

HOLY ROSARY CEMETERY – Remember that our cemetery is a sacred place, and was solemnly consecrated by the Bishop (in 1993). Only those who are practicing traditional Catholics are permitted to be buried in the section that was consecrated. When visiting the cemetery, always conduct yourself in a reverent and prayerful spirit

SUNDAY SERMONS AVAILABLE ON CD – Would you like an audio copy of a recent sermon? Order forms are available in the vestibule.

REV. FR. MICHAEL OSWALT Ordained a priest in the modern Catholic Church in 2008, Fr. Oswalt soon came to see that not only were his orders invalid, but that his Church was not truly the Catholic Church. He came to Mount St. Michael in January 2010 to prepare for his ordination according to the traditional Catholic rite, which took place on June 29. View his online interview (2009)
