Misyon Pa Nou

Sen Michel se yon pawas solid ki la pou réponn a bézwen tout moun. Se yon kominoté ki fè wè prézans Jézi-Kri ; yon réyalité ki poté libèté, ki édé tout moun viv nan la jistis, é ki sélébré lavi sa ki sé dézi ak kado Granmèt la pou tout moun. Nou kwè ké nap viv lavi sa pi byen lè tout moun ap viv égal ak kè pozé. Anplis nou vlé ankourajé yon lavi ki pran swen tout lot moun, ki kléwonnen belté lavi nou é ki sélébré egzistans nou ak anpil kè kontan.

Kinyarwanda/Kirundi:

Indangagaciro za Paroisse ya Mutagatifu Mikayile

Paruwasi ya Mutagatifu Mikayile ibereyeho kugira ngo ifashe gukemura ibibazo by’abantu bose. Ni umuryango uhamya ko Yezu Kiristo ari kumwe natwe; akaba ariwe cyemezo gitanga ubwigenge, kandi ni umuryango ufasha buri wese kubaho mu butabera, yizihiza ubuzima nkuko Imana ibishaka kandi ko ari impano kuri buri wese. Twemera ko twabaho ubuzima neza, iyo abantu bose babaho mu buringanire kandi bakabaho mu mahoro. Ikirushaho, dushaka gushyira ubuzima imbere, tugahanira ko buri wese akiza abandi, agasangiza abandi ibyiza byo kuba ariho, kandi tukabwishimira iminsi yose.

History of St. Michael the Archangel Providence RI

As we look back over the past fifteen decades, and more, we have seen a history of which all of us can be proud. Each and every person who has ever been a part of St. Michael's Parish has helped to forge a great history and to create a legacy of service and love in the name of Jesus Christ, for anyone seeking a home.

Our service is our legacy, to South Providence and to the Diocese of Providence, no matter the people, the time or the circumstances.

Our rich history begins on June 21, 1857, when a tiny Baptist meeting house was dedicated as St. Bernard's Mission Church, which would eventually become St. Michael's Parish. The city's Irish immigrants, many of whom had left behind the Great Famine, and who had to contend with malnutrition, hazardous work conditions and poor housing, began a ministry to the disadvantaged that became the legacy of our parish.

This legacy was acknowledged and lived out decade after decade, for new immigrants (Irish, Spanish Hmong, African, Haitian), by people of faith who had only one answer to strife; to love like Christ loved his people.

This small introduction is offered as a prologue to a history of our parish which can be found in WORLD HISTORY AND ST. MICHAEL'S HISTORY:

https://www.saintmichaelprovidence.org/go/download/share/7b7e71780552484526262e2b00000b0c7b787f7606020e037b

This short history of St. Michael's Parish is offered to you to help you understand, decade by decade, the developments in our parish in counter-balance to events taking place at the same time around the globe. Enjoy our history.

Our parish has grown and evolved over our 150+ years. The English, Irish brogue, French Canadian, Italian, and Portuguese languages of our early years, though still spoken by our community, have been enriched by Portuguese Creole, Spanish, Hmong, Haitian Creole, Kirundi, Kinyarwanda, Swahili and Arabic. In a 2016 survey, St. Michael's community members represented over 40 different countries of origin or identifcation. We are Many Languages, Many Cultures, One Community and we are so blessed to have such diversity in our Providence home. Please take some time to read the individual stories of how our major Language and Cultural groups came to join St Michael's and add to our mosaic.   Edit

The power of Christian prayer I want to know Thee
Father, I want to know Thee, but my coward heart fears to give up its toys. I cannot part with them without inward bleeding, and I do not try to hide from Thee the terror of the parting. I come trembling, but I do come. Please root from my heart all those things which I have cherished so long and which have become a very part of my living self, so that Thou mayest enter and dwell there without a rival. Then shalt Thou make the place of Thy feet glorious. Then shall my heart have no need of the sun to shine in it, for Thyself wilt be the light of it, and there shall be no night there. In Jesus Name, Amen.
