Hispanic Ministry
St. Michael Social Action Committee has begun a ministry for the Hispanic members of our community.  If you are interested in helping, please call Connie Basso at 815-777-6229 for more information.

Currently, St. Michael's Social Action Committee is comprised of a few members. We meet on an irregular basis. If anyone is interested in joining this group please contact St. Michael's Parish office. 
Some of the activities we are involved with are as follows: 

  • Support a Partnership Parish through the Catholic Extension Society. Collections are taken at St. Michael's in support of St. Theresa Mission in Naknek, Alaska. Additional information in regard to this mission/parish may be found at and following the link to St.Theresa Mission in Naknek, Alaska.
  • Collection of food and support for the United Churches of Galena Food Pantry.
  • A yearly "giving tree" with tags for gifts, collecting at Christmas for needy families in the Galena area, as well as for the Galena nursing home and assisted living center.
  • Easter baskets for the Galena nursing home and assisted living center.
  • Collection of school supplies for children in need at the Galena schools (Apple Tree Project).
