A Vision for the Future of St. Michael's
Facing significant growth in the parish, a decision was made in 2004 to launch a capital campaign with a view towards beginning an expansion program.
The first phase of our building project is a 4,300 square foot fellowship hall, with a new kitchen and handicapped-accessible bathrooms. The hall will be physically attached to the church and will seat 176 people. This phase will also include a new porch for the church which will mesh architecturally with the new hall.
Construction on the first phase of the project began on September 6, 2009 and the new building was dedicated on October 10, 2010 in a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Metropolitan JONAH and Bishop TIKHON, which also marked the parish's 95th anniversary.
The second phase of the project, to be launched when funds permit, will add wings to the nave, thus adding room for more worshippers, as well as more parking.
