Passion Play presented by
the Mystery Players of Fort Myers 
at 7:30 p.m.
All are invited to watch the Mystery Players act out the Passion of Christ at St. Michael's.  In order to do this well, the actors need the sanctuary to be as dark as possible for their strobe lights, so this event will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the church itself.  This is an incredible opportunity for St. Michael's and we hope to see many people there.  (The play takes about an hour.)

Parish Mission Statement

St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church is a center of spiritual growth for those seeking Jesus Christ.

We are an open, welcoming congregation that encourages the participation of members and visitors.

We affirm and strengthen our love of God through worship centered in the Eucharist, and through prayer, praise, and learning.

We express the love of Christ by ministering to one another through fellowship and pastoral care, and to the larger community through outreach and service.

We are stewards of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, stewards of the riches of creation, and stewards of the gifts of time, talent and treasure engaged in the ministry of this community of faith.
