St. Michael's to celebrate 165th anniversary
The St. Michael’s Lutheran Church congregation of Richville will celebrate its 165th anniversary of its founding on Sunday, September 25.
The congregation was actually founded on September 29, 1851, on St. Michael and All Angels Day. The special services will be held at the usual times, 7:45am and 10:30am, and will feature special decorations, songs by the choirs and church bands and barbecued chicken dinners.
A special German Prayer and Praise service will be held at 9:15am, between the two regular services. The service is printed in German and English.
Earlier this year, the congregation voted to move its chicken barbecue from its long-time traditional Mother’s Day Sunday to coincide with the church’s anniversary.
The take-out barbecue will begin at 11am at the school, with a cost of $8.50 per meal. The menu will include half a chicken, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and pie. Proceeds from the barbecue will benefit tuition scholarships for St. Michael’s School and to erect a new outdoor sign at the school. The sign was damaged beyond repair in an accident nearly two years ago.
