Our Sympathy to Rosemary Guinzy’s Family -  “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live” (John 11:25). As we mourn the passing on to eternity of our dear parishioner; Rosemary Guinzy, we thank God for the many years he granted her on this earth; years spent in truthful witness to faith in Christ Jesus, serving besides other things as a member of St. Michael’s Altar Sodality.  On behalf of the parishioners of St. Michael the Archangel, I express our sincere condolences to the family of Rosemary Guinzy, praying the Lord who called her from this life on Sept. 7, 2019, to grant her eternal rest in heaven.  May he comfort the family and friends she left behind with the assurance of the resurrection when we shall all rise in the Lord to part no more.  Fr. Oliver Nwachukwu, Ph.D.  


Our Sympathy to Kay Winka’s Family – “If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s (Rm 14:8).

For many years Kay served as one of our PSR teachers at St. Michael the Archangel Church, a service she very much enjoyed and wished to continue if health permitted. As we mourn her departure to life eternal, we thank God for the services she rendered to our parish.  On behalf of the parishioners of St. Michael the Archangel, I express our sincere condolences to Kay’s family, praying to the merciful God to grant her eternal rest in heaven. May he comfort her family and friends left behind with the assurance of the resurrection when we shall rise in the Lord to part no more.  Fr. Oliver Nwachukwu, Ph.D.

Although Joann Pelka Green, a non-parishioner of St. Michael the Archangel who died on Sept. 11, 2019 will be buried in our cemetery on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, beside her Pelka folks, she was not a stranger to this area having been born in DuBois in 1938.  On behalf of the members of St. Michael the Archangel Parish, I express our sincere sympathy to Joann’s family, praying to God to grant her eternal rest in heaven. May be comfort her family and friends with the assurance of the resurrection when we shall all rise in the Lord to part no more.                       Fr.
