Welcome to St. Michael in Old Town


Welcome from Pastor Ted Lawson, C.Ss.R


“You’re not a visitor anymore. You’re one of us.” Since 1852, the bells of St. Michael in Old Town have welcomed thousands of parishioners, guests, and neighbors – not just for worship, weddings, funerals, and spiritual guidance, but for a range of activities open to Old Town Triangle and neighboring communities. The historic church also welcomes numerous tour groups each year, to marvel at St. Mike’s architecture, art, and beauty.

Presider Schedule

Fr. Lawson has announced earlier this month that our Associate Pastor,   Fr. Joe Morin, had a stroke and he is in rehab working to recuperate. Due to this sudden turn of events, the Presider Schedule has been removed from publication until Mass assignments can be reassigned.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and ask that everyone keep the Redemptorists community at St. Michael’s in their prayers.


See mass times for our complete schedule at St. Michael in Old Town.
