About Us

Who We Are

St. Michael’s on the Green in Naugatuck is an inclusive, caring, and unified congregation, offering a radical welcome to all people, whether you are from the valley or beyond.

We are a multigenerational Episcopal parish with a strong Anglo-Catholic tradition. We are also a diverse, affirming, inclusive parish with a rich history of outstanding worship, music, and social action.

Located in a suburban community, at the "gateway" to Waterbury, we lift up Christ in our liturgy, Christian formation, spiritually inspired music provides holy ground for anyone on a faith journey. In order to improve ourselves, we look beyond to serve God in our community. We have a forward looking and growing commitment to local mission and Christian stewardship. We seek to share Christ's light and grace with others.

No matter who you are or where you are on your own faith journey, you are welcome here. We proclaim the Gospel promise of liberation in our preaching and are a congregation whose members are embodied in justice, hospitality, and love. We offer a safe space where you will hear an unfailing message of God’s outrageous and unconditional love for you.

 

Join us and experience an environment of healing, reconciliation, sanctuary, empowerment, and peace.

As members of Christ's body we strive to spread His love in the world by:

1. Feeding the hungry
2. Expanding Christ’s ministry
3. Encouraging individual participation in His Church
4. Sharing the gift of music.
5. Welcoming and supporting all who seek His grace

Greeting

When you arrive at one of our Sunday services, you will be greeted and welcomed by members of the clergy and lay ministers of hospitality. Ushers, our Name tag ministers, will make you a name tag (and when you return again, will help you find it!). By wearing a nametag, our clergy can welcome you at God’s Table by name when you come to receive the Holy Eucharist. Praying over you by name is also an important component of our Healing Ministry if you wish to avail yourself of that. Finally, wearing a name tag will help our congregation to greet and welcome you to St. Michael’s.

 

 

Music

Music is an integral part of our worship life. Many opportunities exist for choral and ensemble singing, available to all ages and for all people. For more information, or to learn how to be involved in the music programming at St. Michael’s please come visit or give us a call.

 

 

Coffee Hour

After worship is over, we invite you into the wing of the Church (the exit door immediately to the left of the altar) for coffee, refreshments, and an opportunity to meet your fellow worshipers and our clergy. We will be delighted to greet you and to get to know you better!
