After more than 50 years of transforming high school boys into well prepared Catholic young men, St. Michael’s Preparatory School will be closing its doors after the 2019-2020 school year, in anticipation of the move to our new abbey home. Our community will continue to participate actively in the numerous apostolates we are currently serving in; parishes, chaplaincies, retreats, Catholic radio, Catholic schools, etc. This transition calls us particularly to re-focus our efforts on educating our 40 current (and future) seminarians, in the spirit of our founder and great reformer of the Church, St. Norbert. Yes, God has blessed us greatly and we move onward continuing to trust in His holy will for us.
One essential element of our religious vocation is to pray for the needs and intentions of others. We would be honored to pray for you and your loved ones. Please share with us your intentions and be assured that we will carry them with us in prayer.
The Mass is the highest form of Christian charity. It re-presents the perfect sacrifice of Calvary, and so it is the priest’s essential duty and his greatest honor to offer Holy Mass. In all ages, the Christian faithful have traditionally offered alms for the celebration of the Mass, for the support of the priest and the maintenance of the church where the sacred rites are celebrated.
St. Michael’s Summer Camp exists to bring young souls closer to Jesus Christ. Our primary goal is to promote in our campers an increase in the virtues of faith, hope, and charity. The camp experience also seeks to strengthen their respect for parental and civil authority, as well as provide a Christian setting in which the boys can have fun participating in activities and associating with others of their age group.
We are blessed to have the ability to visit and minister to people currently in local hospitals and prisons. Carrying out corporal works of mercy, we are able to accompany those who are lonely, suffering, or seeking the Lord, as well as to offer them access to the sacraments.
