  • YEAR OF MERCY

    The extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy
    began this week with Pope Francis opening the Holy Door at St Peter’s in Rome on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
    Bishop O’Regan opens a Holy Door in
    St Mary’s Cathedral, Sale, today.
    Here at St. Michael’s we have nominated a door as our own holy door, it is designated with the Year of Mercy emblem. A cross has been setup as a prayer focus. You can read about the logo near our reconciliation room which is a particular place to encounter God’s mercy. We are invited to experience God’s mercy and become “merciful like the Father” (Luke 6:36)


  • PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL

    Saint Michael, the Archangel,
    defend us in the hour of battle.
    Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God restrain him,
    we humbly pray; and do thou,
    O Prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all
    the other evil spirits who roam through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
    Amen.
    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus -
    Have mercy on us x 3
