St. Michael's Church is located in the very heart of the North Clinton Avenue community. We are at the center of a very exciting and promising renewal effort that is attracting new people, new programs, and new ideas into the neighborhood. St. Michael's is the spiritual home of many members of the community. We also find ourselves in the unique position of being the resident and service provider with the longest history in the North Clinton Avenue area. St. Michael's has carried on a wonderful, vibrant ministry for over one hundred and thirty years. We have always sought to serve the needs of the immigrant population that has settled here. Now we stand at the threshold of a dynamic new phase of our Christian witness. Because of our location, the good will and generosity of our people, and the unique resources that our buildings provide, we can now begin to reach out to those most in need with new ministerial offerings. We specifically look to target the disenfranchised, the alienated, along with those who may simply feel left behind as the world moves on. Our outreach efforts are aimed at both young and old. Our ministry to the sick and the homebound involves volunteers from both our Hispanic and Anglo members. They visit hospitals, nursing homes as well as private residents. Our original school building which has been turned into Senior Housing was expanded with an additional building that was added at the rear of our parking lot in 2007. The security and family atmosphere our Senior Housing provides to its residents is enhanced by living in the shadow of our church.
