ST MICHAEL'S IN THE MOMENT: November 3, 2018

All Saints’ Day commemorates all the saints, known and unknown, on November 1st. It is one of the seven principal feasts of the church year and the Sunday celebration is typically on the Sunday following November 1st.
While many saints have a particular feast day, those whose sainthood is known only to God have no particular feast day—and so on All Saints’ Day we remember all the saints of the church. In addition, in the New Testament all the followers of Jesus are called “saints” and so this day remembers all those who have died in the faith of Christ.
All Saints’ Day is an ancient feast. It arose out of the Christian tradition of celebrating the martyrdom of saints on the anniversary of their martyrdom. When martyrdoms increased during the persecutions of the late Roman Empire, local dioceses instituted a common feast day in order to ensure that all martyrs were properly honored.

In English, the traditional name for All Saints’ Day was All Hallows Day, since in Old English a hallow was a saint or holy person. The vigil or eve of the feast, October 31st, is still commonly known as All Hallows Eve, or Halloween
If you have loved ones who have entered the larger life that you would like included in our remembrances on Sunday, please reply submit your names via email no later than Friday morning, November 2nd.

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.

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.
