Welcome to the Parish of Saint Michael the Archangel! We are located in the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey under the leadership of the Most Reverend Dennis J. Sullivan. The Parish serves the communities of Franklinville and Clayton.  Rev Lawrence E. Polansky is our Pastor. The Parish of Saint Michael the Archangel was established September 29, 2010 through the merger of the Church of the Nativity, located at 2677 Delsea Dr, Franklinville, and Saint Catherine of Siena Church, located at 700 N Delsea Dr, Clayton. The Parish Office is located at 49 W North St, Clayton. We invite you to visit the pages of our Parish Site to learn about who we are as a community of faith and the services our parish provides. If you are thinking about moving into our area, we cordially invite you to make the Parish of Saint Michael the Archangel your parish home and join us in our mission.

From the Pastor's Desk

 

 My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

  Self-identity is a big deal in our society. Knowing who we are enables us to journey through life with confidence, with a sense of direction and purpose, and with an accurate assessment of our capabilities as well as our weaknesses. In this weekend's Gospel, Jesus' question to His disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" was not about His seeking His own self-awareness. It was a question put to the disciples that would reveal to them more deeply who He was and why He came among them. In Peter's response, "You are the Christ," we meet a high point in Saint Mark's Gospel account. We are invited to struggle more deeply with who Jesus is. We are invited to prepare ourselves for what faithful discipleship entails.  

  May Saint Michael the Archangel protect, defend, guide, and intercede for us always!

Fr. Larry
