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.

See our CENTENNIAL PAGE with Photo Slideshow
for current information on this year-long celebration.

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)
