Parishioners are invited to take part in an important ministry of visiting those incarcerated. Matt Winston, (870) 257-2857, visits those in the State Prison at Calico Rock; Rose Brandenburg, (870) 944-2744, visits those in our local County Jail. If you would like to get involved, please call Matt or Rose for more information.
Prison Pen Pals:
Some prisoners have little to no contact with the outside world. There are others who are eager to learn more about the Catholic Faith. Letters are written anonymously and are mailed to the Church Office. If you would like more information on how to become a Pen Pal, please contact Matt Winston, (870) 257-2857.
St. Vincent de Paul:
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a world-wide ministry founded by Blessed Frederic Ozanam. They minister to the needs of the poor, specifically spiritual, but financially as monetary means allow. The SVDP Society, which meets at St. Michael’s Church, is comprised of volunteer parishioners who minister to those within our parish boundaries, regardless of religious affiliation or belief. If you are in need and would like to speak with one of its members, please call their hotline, (870) 257-3448, and leave your name and phone # on their answering machine. If you would like to become a member, or learn more about this very important ministry in our community, call President, Nancy Paluck, (870) 421-9383.
