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,

   If we are to be God's abundant harvest, then our first task for living the Gospel and Paschal Mystery is to hear God's Word. In that divine Word we receive God's direction for our lives, hear God's will, and determine how we are to live God's mystery of salvation. The Word is like the mustard seed that is planted in us. We nurture it with caring acts, help it to grow by watering it with the tears of our self-giving, and weed it by rooting out all in us that is opposed to God's desires for us. Each good or not-so-good choice we make each day affects the growth of the mustard seed-Word that God plants deep within us.

   It is never enough to hear God's Word, though. We must always let that Word inform the actions we undertake. Understanding God's Word is a matter of standing up for Gospel values, standing under those who need support and encouragement, and standing for Jesus and His invitation to live as He did. In other words, to live the two greatest commandments ... "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength ... AND your shall love your neighbor as yourself."

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

Fr. Larry
