Welcome to St. Michael Unionville, PA

Okay, the characters above are not the real staff at St. Michael, but you might find them hanging around the church on any given Sunday. They are members of our popular puppet ministry, and they love welcoming visitors and entertaining everyone with their hilarious antics. But when it comes to making St. Michael the church you will want to call home, there are no harder working, more serious, or more effective folks than our real staff. We'd like you to meet them. ...
