Our School is Named after St. Michael the Archangel
God has many ways to show loving concern for us. One of these is through the angels. God has sent angels into people’s lives when they needed protection. In art St. Michael is usually pictured as strong and youthful, clothed in armour and wearing sandals. The Book of Daniel describes him as a heavenly prince who stands guard over God’s people, helping them to return from captivity. The name Michael means “Who is like God?” He is the main fighter in the battle against Lucifer, or Satan, as related in the book of Revelation. The Christians of the second century took courage from these accounts. They believed that Michael’s intercession was powerful in rescuing souls from Hell. Because of the archangels’ closeness to God, the Church urges people to pray to them for help. In times of temptation, people pray to Michael.
