Daily prayer

Daily prayer is vital for the growing Christian's daily schedule. You can pray by yourself, with your family, with friends, at home, at church, with anyone, anywhere! The important thing is that you are growing in your commitment to and practice of daily prayer.

St. Michael’s currently has three opportunities for daily prayer at the church with others:

a) Evening Prayer on Mondays at 6:30pm.

b) Morning Prayer on Tuesdays at 8:00am.

c) Morning Prayer on Thursdays at 10:00am.

Nearby Nashotah House Theological Seminary holds Morning and Evening prayer every day (Monday through Saturday, 7:45am and 4:45pm) which is open to the public. Nashotah House is located just west of St. Michael’s.
