Do I have to be Catholic to attend?
Everyone is welcome at Michael’s! You don’t have to be Catholic. Regardless of your beliefs or background, everyone who comes to our parish is an honoured guest. We’re here for you.
Where do I park?
The parish has lots of off-street parking, but it does fill up. At most masses, our parking team will guide you to a parking spot on our lot. Just follow the smiling faces.
Is it safe?
The parking at St Michael’s on campus is safe, but it is important to be vigilant nonetheless. Look out for the parking team, and if necessary, ask someone to accompany you to your car, particularly if it is after dark.
Where should I go when I get there?
Our hosts will meet you at the door and will show you where to find the sanctuary, the restrooms, and children’s programmes. If you need anything throughout the mass, feel free to stop by the Information Desk, or just ask anyone with a name-tag. We’re here to serve!
What can I expect at mass?
We’re a Catholic Church, so if you have ever been to Mass before you’ll recognise the liturgy and prayers. If not, please tell one of our hosts at the info desk and we’ll be sure to brief you. They’ll also tell you why we stand, sit and kneel so much.
What should I wear?
Catholics are mostly very casual so don’t feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.
What about my kids?
We love kids and want them to hear about God on their own level.
On Sundays at the 9 am mass, the kid’s and tots can join our Genesis programme in the parish centre. The programme runs on for the first half of the 9 am mass and is for children from 1 to 7. They return to the church at the offertory. The sessions are safe and are run by parents who have all been trained and vetted.
Our foyer is set up with seating for parents with small children – there is a carpet for the kids to play on. Families with kids are very welcome in the church itself during mass; we do however ask that you be sensitive during the homily.
