Who We Are

An Episcopal Church community at 5th & Wilmot in Tucson, we are Anglo-Catholic in our worship, and socially involved in community, country and the world.

Founded in 1953, originally as a a parochial mission of St. Philip's in the Hills Episcopal Church, St. Michael's has been socially active since its earliest days under its first rector, Fr. John Clinton Fowler. That spirit is still reflected in our mission statement: "St. Michael and All Angels Tucson strengthens people by word and sacrament to be agents of Jesus' gospel of justice, peace and love in the world."

Over the years the church has been expanded numerous times, starting in 1964. The campus includes St. Michael's School, an award-winning primary and middle-school. The church itself boasts one of the finest pipe organs in Southern Arizona, a 45-rank, 3750 pipe Æolian-Skinner Pipe Organ, first built in 1959.

Our Services

What are services like?
St. Michael and All Angels has five services on Sunday, serving the needs of parishioners and visitors with several liturgies and styles of worship. The early and late Masses at 7:45 AM and 5 PM are shorter masses for busy people. At 9 AM our Family Mass, led by Mother Clare Yarborough, has family-friendly music and contemporary retellings of the week's Bible readings, often read and performed by young churchgoers. Godly Play for children is available in our Parish Center at 10:10 AM, concurrent with our High Mass at 10:15 AM. This AngloCatholic liturgy includes the "bells and smells" - traditional hymns with our Parish Choir, accompanied on our Æolian-Skinner organ; incense, chants and traditional vestments. At 12:30 the church becomes Mision San Miguel for our Misa en Español, led by Father Jorge Sotelo. We also have several masses during the week, and a contemplative Taizé service of of music, prayers, spiritual readings, and silence, first and third Tuesdays at 6:45 PM. Holy Eucharist is available at all masses.

What is the community like?
Our parishioners range in age from babies to seniors over 90 years old - young and old and in between, rich and poor and in between, straight and gay, married and single, but united in a sense of community and service to the world beyond the church's adobe walls. The church has many ministries and many opportunities to serve, from preparing food bags to working on border issues, from participating in the liturgy to making candy, from serving food at Coffee Hour to bringing health care to remote villages in Guatemala.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All are welcome at St. Michael's, regardless of faith background. However, the service is Christian, rooted in the Anglican Communion and proclaiming the Nicene Creed.
