P.S. This is also the first drop-off date for donations for the Christmas bazaar! You can bring clothes, kitchenware, knickknacks, really anything that you think someone else might enjoy and could even be given as a Christmas present. Drop off the goods at the church around 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
We are looking for volunteers to help us at the Christmas bazaar! Helping hands needed the day before, Friday 15th from 10-13 for organizing the basement and accepting donations, and at the bazaar for sales etc. We also welcome baked goods for sale - cookies, pulla etc.

We are organizing it again, and we are inviting YOU to to join our team! Help us serve supper to those in need. A warm meal on a cold evening is a big deal. We promise you a very humbling and heart-warming experience, and a very concrete way to help. We will start at 3:30 p.m. and it usually takes about 3 hours to serve the meals.
Interested? Let us know, we have a limited amount of spots!
Send email to iitu.vuokila (at) gmail.com to sign up.
On the All Saints Sunday on October 27th, three members of our congregation received awards from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland's Ministry to Finns Abroad. They were recognized for their significant contributions to the congregational life and operations of St. Michael's Church over the years. Congratulations to all! Here is our council chairman Samuli with one of the awardees: Heli Parenteau, a long-term active member and currently in the church council. The other awardees were Pirkko Kotkavuori (Metsämarttila) and Heikki Metsämarttila.
Pyhän Mikaelin kirkossa jaettiin 27.10. Suomen evankelis-luterilaisen kirkon ulkosuomalaistyön ansiomerkkejä ja kunniakirjoja henkilöille, jotka ovat antaneet merkittävän panoksen kirkkomme toimintaan. Onnittelut kaikille tunnustuksen saaneille! Kuvassa seurakunnan puheenjohtajan Samulin kanssa yksi ansiomerkin saajista, Heli Parenteau. Ansiomerkin saivat myös Pirkko Kotkavuori (Metsämarttila) ja Heikki Metsämarttila.
A place for Finns, for those who love Finland, for those of faith, and those who simply ask meaningful questions of LIFE
