In 1992, St. Michael Catholic Church was formed to serve the Catholics living on the expanding far West End of Richmond. In May, 1992, the first weekend Masses were held at Good Shepherd United Methodist and Short Pump Middle School.
Twent-five years later, the parish has grown from 280 families to nearly 3,000 families, and it is ready to celebrate a quarter century of being the "village" to which all are welcome.
Over the next months, St. Michael has a number of celebratory events planned to mark its 25th Anniversary. Some of those include:
Lenten Parish Mission
Richmond Symphony & Chorus
Anniversary Liturgy - One Mass
