Saint Michael’s is a Parish of the Anglican Church in North America, part of the One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  We worship the One True God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and we regularly celebrate and share the Sacraments.

As a Biblically faithful Church we seek to know Christ and to make Him known in all of our teaching and practice.

We Are Evangelical Christians 
and Orthodox in Doctrine

We profess the Faith uniquely revealed in the Holy Scriptures and set forth in the Catholic Creeds.  We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and contain all things necessary for Salvation.  We obey the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to preach the Gospel and make Disciples.

We Are Catholic Christians
and Orthodox in Worship

We adhere to the traditions of the ancient, undivided, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  We follow the historic Catholic faith as confessed by the ancient Church in the Apostles (A.D. 150,) Nicene (A.D. 325) and Athanasian (A.D. 401) Creeds.  Our worship is Eucharistic and Liturgical.  We use the historic 1928 Anglican Book of Common Prayer.

Saint Michael’s Anglican Church is a parish of the Anglican Church in North America, serving the wider Harrisburg/West Shore Enola area.  Our aim is to glorify God by maintaining the practice of the ancient catholic and apostolic life of faith centered upon Jesus Christ in the Liturgy of the Mass and other sacraments revealing Himself to his people.  We believe that Jesus is the Incarnate Son of God who died for our sins, and through whom we are reconciled to God and offered a place in heaven.  We regard Scripture as God’s word, containing all things necessary to salvation, and understood within catholic Tradition as the source of safety and abundance in our community life together as disciples.  This faith which has been handed down to us from the apostles is a priceless treasure.

In the midst of the world’s capsizing winds and growing confusion in the world and in the Church today, the parish of Saint Michael’s has become a safe harbor helping people come to an awareness of God’s presence with all the help of our rich Anglican tradition. Our worship is Eucharistic and centered at the altar.  Using traditional Anglican forms, our worship has formality as well as intimacy, times of quiet thanksgiving as well as praise. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the Hymnal 1940.  We are determined to live in Christ upholding His life in us, and actively practicing this life as best we can to pass His life spiritually unimpaired to future generations of faithful Christians.

beautiful music, beautiful people at st. michael's
Celia Finestone, a regular guest at St. Michael's Anglican Parish, is a harpist and pianist who writes her own music. She says of St. Michaels, "This church has a sweet, sweet spirit." Humbly, we agree.
