Thank you for visiting our Parish Web Site of St. Michael’s Parish in Gastonia, North Carolina. We pray that you will come to visit us in person when you are in our area. We are a parish of the Diocese of Charlotte. Please visit our Diocesan Web Site or that of the Holy See (the Vatican.)
The members of the St. Michael parish family, in union with the Roman Catholic
Church, are called through growing knowledge and increasing love to receive Gods
grace, that they may in turn call others to this loving communion of grace.
To build our parish community by focusing on the truth of the Incarnation and the
Holy Eucharist, “The Word Became Flesh and Made His Dwelling Among Us”. We
pledge to work together to provide programs and resources in order to bring all
of us into a deeper union with the mysteries of the Incarnation and Eucharist to
better understand “The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church”.
Forward in Faith and Hope and Love
Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love is a commitment to the future of our parishes and ministries for the future generations. This combined effort of all 92 parishes and missions in the Diocese of Charlotte aimed at addressing the most pressing needs of our fellow brethren. It is through the grace of God and the sacrifices of those who came before us that our parish is what it is today. May we always be open to God’s grace and be willing to make our own sacrifices so that St. Michael and the Diocese of Charlotte may continue to bear witness to the Kingdom of God.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle,
be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the
heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and
the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin
of souls. Amen.
