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 and Saint Catherine of Siena Church. The Parish Office is located at 49 W North St, Clayton. We have two worship sites: Nativity Church located at 2677 Delsea Dr, Franklinville and Saint Catherine of Siena Church, 700 N Delsea Dr, 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,

    It can be a true challenge to forgive on a daily basis. There are so many opportunities for slights, annoyances, oversights, and sometimes even deliberate harm. Something in our human nature wants to learn and remember when these things happen to us. And while we will probably never forget such experiences, we are to forgive. In doing so we continue the victory Jesus won on Easter Sunday. By our forgiving others, we advance the glorious reign of peace. This is our task and we have the Holy Spirit to help us. Forgiving means letting go, so that the matter does not consume us from within. Forgiving doesn't mean that the matter was okay. When we forgive, we do so as much for our benefit as for the one we are forgiving. By forgiving we are simultaneously conforming ourselves more perfectly to Christ, and dying to ourselves and to our earthly cares and desires.

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

Fr. Larry
