St. Michael and All Angels, Steeple


For almost a thousand years people have prayed in this church. In the restless world of today it provides a place for worship and prayer and a place for reflection and quietness. About the time that building commenced this prayer was written: –

St. Francis of Assisi’s Prayer:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
