Saint Michael the Archangel Church, Silver Spring, Maryland

On a recent trip to Silver Spring, we visited our old parish of Saint Michael the Archangel. We were married there and our first two children were baptized there. We have many happy memories, including being part of the Neocatechumenal Way. We happened to visit on a Saturday morning inbetween activities and had the place to ourselves.

The church is fairly simple inside, without ostentation or distraction. It's home to a large variety of communities.

The baptismal font is also simple and straightforward. It seems like ages ago that we had our son and daughter baptized.

The church has a few statues. The one of Jesus (that looks new to me, but we haven't been there in over seven years) looks quite glorious and was the favorite of our kids.


The sanctuary is flanked by the typical statues--Our Lady and Saint Joseph.

They also have a nice painting of Saint Michael in action.
