ST MICHAEL'S IN THE MOMENT: September 27, 2018

Tomorrow is the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. Of the many angels spoken of in the Bible, only four are called by name: Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael. The Archangel Michael is the powerful agent of God who wards off evil from God’s people, and delivers peace to them at the end of this life’s mortal struggle.

“Michaelmas,” as the feast is called in England, has long been one of the popular celebrations of the Christian Year in many parts of the world. Michael is the patron saint of countless churches, including Mont Saint-Michel, the monastery fortress off the coast of Normandy that figured so prominently in medieval English history, and Coventry Cathedral, England’s most famous modern church building, rising from the ashes of the most devastating war of our time.* And of course, St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church in El Segundo, California!

Everlasting God,
you have ordained and constituted in a wonderful order
the ministries of angels and mortals:
Mercifully grant that,
as your holy angels always serve and worship you in heaven,
so by your appointment they may help and defend us here on earth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

LETTER FROM THE RECTOR 
Rev. Dina Ferguson

Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church!

We are glad you are visiting our website and hope you will visit us in person soon. If you are looking for a spiritual home, we welcome you to worship God and grow in grace with us. If you are looking for a temporary place of spiritual rest and fulfillment as you travel on to another destination, you are welcome to spend a day or a month or more with us. 

St. Michael the Archangel Church is part of the Diocese of Los Angeles of The Episcopal Church. Our worship services use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. Our early service at 8am is a quiet service using Rite I. The family service at 10am is a choral Eucharist using Rite II. The child care is always available at this service and we offer Sunday school beginning at 10am in Yeaton Hall on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month during the school year.

We invite you to walk with us on your spiritual journey. Wherever that journey takes you, may you know the blessings of God who calls us all in love.

MISSION STATEMENT

Growing in God's Love.

Working in God's Spirit.

St. Michael the Archangel Episcopal Church is located in El Segundo, California, a coastal community in Los Angeles’ South Bay.  The city was founded in 1911 by Standard Oil Company and its name, which means “the second” in Spanish, is the site of Standard Oil’s second refinery. The east side of town is a bustling business mecca, home to twelve Fortune 500 companies. The west side features a quiet residential area and a quaint downtown. St. Michael’s is located on the corner of Richmond and Holly just west of the main downtown business district in the residential part of town.

 

Because of its centrality to the surrounding areas of Manhattan Beach, Playa Del Rey, and Hawthorne, St. Michael’s serves parishioners from across the South Bay, and routinely welcomes travelers passing through nearby LAX.
