St. Michael & All Angels, Windsor

Archangel St MichaelSt Michael, Windsor, OntarioThe parish was founded in 1957 with the first services taking place in the Rectory. The church building was dedicated on Christmas Eve 1959.

The church is named after Archangel St Michael who is the patron saint of grocers, mariners, paratroopers, police, and sickness.

Among the church groups is a Guild of St Raphael branch. The Guild's concern is with healing in its widest sense - the healing of all creation, individuals, society, the environment. It is common in Guild parishes for the Sunday nearest to St Raphael’s Day, 24th October, to be given over to the theme of healing.
