About Us‎ > ‎


Sharing the Good News does not just happen on Sundays -- it happens every day.  In fact, every moment is an opportunity to more fully live into and share God's love.  

We intentionally make our building and facilities available to groups and organizations who share a vision of reconciliation, justice and peace.  St. Michael's is home to San Damiano Ecumenical Catholic Church we continuously try be aware of other ways in which the building and facilities might be used to share the Good News.  

St. Michael’s is a “roll-up your sleeves and pitch in kind of place.” 
We, as your Vestry, have just made it easier for you to do just such a thing. Below you will find a list of ministry needs and their coordinators. (Some ministries may need coordinators; perhaps that’s your gift.) 
Please peruse the list and see where you want to come on-board with your talents and time…and contact the leader that is listed. 
This list does not preclude activities, events, ideas, etc., that will come up in the unfolding life of our church. It does, however, and importantly, give us a base understanding of our starting place and our resources of time and talent. 
Everyone can pitch in at their level of availability so, if you are interested at all, inquire. Surely, there is a way you can help! 
If something is not listed that you are interested in doing, please contact Dick Babeu at rbabeu@aol.com or by calling him at (501) 803-4756.
