407 Registered Families and 172 have made a pledge to the Capital Campaign.

Information about our Capital Campaign


The Capital Campaign & the Building Fund are two separate, distinct funds.
The Capital Campaign is a pledge for the next 3 to 5 years specifically to build our building. The pledge total counts as collateral for a loan. The Building Fund is a restricted account that will be used to furnish our building with what we need inside—Chairs, tables, plates, pots, pans, etc. Currently we need total participation in the Capital Campaign in order to meet our goal of $1.5 million, so we can obtain a loan to build. At this point, the Capital Campaign is the more important of the two.

If you are new to the parish or find you do not have a packet, you may participate by picking up a blank packet at the Greeters Table. Whether you are new or not, we ask that you pray about an amount that you can give sacrificially, fill out the pledge card, drop it in the collection basket or mail it to the Parish Office or drop it off at the Parish Office. Together we can make our building happen!

Building Update:
We have created a new page for all future Church buidling project updates. You can find the building project link below under "Parish Links". Please check back often as we will post any new information there.

Online Giving is now active for our Parish! The "Online Giving" link is now updated to reflect our online giving site. If you have any questions, please call the parish office or call Craig Rudko at 480-250-0722. You can also email webmaster@stmichaels77.org.

Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
may God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of the souls.
Amen.

Prayers to Build Our Church

O Lord our God, whose might upholds all creation: Establish the work of our helpless hands; And make this lowly church a place for the showing of Thy glory; and for all peoples a house of prayer pleasing in Thy sight. We pray Thee: Hear us and have mercy.
O God, with whom every good thing has its beginning, and through whom it is improved and increased: grant, we beseech Thee to us who cry to Thee, that this work, which we are beginning for the praise of Thy name, may be happily brought to completion through the never failing gift of Thy fatherly wisdom.
Through Christ our Lord
Amen.

O Lord, Divine Architect, Creator of our Human Family;
Risen Jesus, Cornerstone of our Faith,
Lover of us all; Spirit of Wisdom,
Builder of community, Our Inspiration and Guide;
You call us to build up Your Kingdom. Bless us with generous hearts,
open minds, greater unity,
renewed vision, as we seek to build a house for celebration and worship.
May it be a home where all are welcomed, nourished, and empowered
to be Christ for others.
Amen
