support of all the faithful, every generation. From
our classrooms to workshops, presentations to programs, The
St. Michael Education Foundation exists to promote and financially
support the educational missions associated with St. Michael
Parish, including St. Michael Catholic School. Since 1992, the
Education Foundation has been helping families provide their
children with a rewarding catholic education. This education would
have otherwise not been possible for these children, except for the
assistance from the Education Foundation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”How We Help ” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23dd3333″][vc_column_text]The gifts that the Education Foundation receives are used to

[/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Our History” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23dd3333″][vc_column_text]On the feast day of St. Michael in 1874, our first church was blessed and a parish was formed on land donated by Schererville founder, Nicholas Scherer. From this first generous donation, our parish families have been blessed with the opportunity to continuously grow and become stronger through the generosity of our parishioners. Today, our parish continues to be blessed with a faithful community that is dedicated to sharing their time, treasure, and talent for the benefit of St. Michael Parish and St. Michael Catholic School.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
