Young Adult Book Study
The last date will be Thursday, August 6th at 7pm for the young adults in the parish to join our Seminarian Luke Agnew in a book study covering Saint Jose Maria Escriva’s compilation of homilies contained in his book Christ is Passing By. Saint Jose Maria Escriva the founder of Opus Dei, which literally means God’s Work, sought to help men and women sanctify their work in the world and inspire within them a commitment to holiness!
Coming to St. Michael’s

Crossroads was founded in 1995 by Steve Sanborn, a student at Franciscan University of Steubenville (Ohio) as a response to John Paul II’s call to the youth of the world to take an active role in the pro-life movement in order to establish a Culture of Life. An integral part of Crossroads is our yearly pro-life pilgrimages across the United States. Each summer, young adults walk on four simultaneous pro-life walks across America from Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.. Walking over 12,000 miles and through 40 states, these young people hope to convert the hearts and minds of others – at the grass-roots level – by witnessing to the dignity and sanctity of all human life, from the moment of conception to natural death.
If you are a frequent visitor to the chapel but are not signed up for a specific hour, please prayerfully consider taking one of the open hours posted on the board. We would like to fill these hours first but you can choose any hour that suits your schedule. Having two adorers at every hour ensures that the Blessed Sacrament will never be left alone even in an emergency situation.
The reason we can keep the chapel open is because of the many sacrifices of the registered adorers, division leaders and substitutes. This allows visitors, like yourselves, the privilege of adoring our Lord at any time of the day or night at your convenience. However, this is not an easy task at times and more committed adorers and substitutes are needed.
This chapel is a gift from the Lord. We are not giving to Him, He is giving to us. We can console His heart with our visits, especially a special hour set aside just for Him. He gives us 168 hours a week. Surely, we can set aside one of those hours to keep him company.
God bless you all and may the Holy Spirit inspire you to make that commitment. Please call CHRIS WARNER AT 973-527-3839 to sign up or to answer any questions.
