St. Michael Cookbook Order Form

The Cookbook Committee is excited to report that we are near completion in producing the St. Michael Cookbook titled “THE FOODS THAT UNITE US … A Collection of Recipes from Our Kitchens, Our Heritage and Our Traditions”. Thanks to the wonderful, talented and creative cooks in our parish, we have put together a dynamic collection of recipes that reflects our diverse church family, its faith, fellowship and, of course, great food. This cookbook, complete with easy to follow directions, color photos, commentary and warm memories from its contributors, make it special and unique for yourself and for those to whom you gift it.

We are hoping for a SUMMER 2021 delivery and are now taking orders. The cost is $30 each or $25 each when ordering 5 or more. Order forms can be found at the back of the church and here:

Tying Scarfs 2021

Scarves on Main Street, Hyannis was a success. Thanks to everyone who came out to hang scarves and leave care packages for those who need.

THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who selflessly baked cookies and generously gave money to make our Christmas meal donation breathtakingly successful!

We donated SIXTY-FIVE hams, SIXTY-FIVE $25 grocery store gift cards, and 104 tins of homemade cookies! Thank you for spreading the hope, the love, the peace, and the joy of Christmas to so many Cape families in need.

Calling All Cookie Bakers 2020

This year, we will be donating 65 Christmas meals to needy families at Faith Family Kitchen. The meal will consist of a ham, a grocery store gift card, and a tin of homemade cookies. Delivery of the meals will be on the morning of Monday, December 21. If you love to bake, have always wanted to bake, or are just willing to share some of your time to make a struggling family’s Christmas a little brighter, please, please, please:

  1. Email Kh. Alyssa (alyssakjendal@yahoo.com) and let her know how many filled cookie tins you will be donating. We need 65!!!
  2. Buy (or reuse) some cookie tins. (Please contact Kh. Alyssa if you are willing to bake but getting tins will be an issue for you.)
  3. Bake! Bake! Bake! (Most of the cookies should be homemade, but you can certainly include some candy or store-bought cookies in each tin.)
  4. Bring your filled cookie tins to the church by Sunday, December 20. (Please contact Kh. Alyssa if you are willing to bake but are unable to get your filled tins to the church.)

We have cookie recipes that need to be tested. If you’re interested in trying something new, please let Soraya know.

THANK YOU! May you and your family be blessed by the time you spend sharing the love of Christ with others!

Thanksgiving Meals 2020 – Thank You and Photos

On Thursday 11/19, we delivered 15 Thanksgiving meals (complete with a turkey, pie, fresh produce, and all the traditional fixings) to Faith Family Kitchen in Hyannis to be distributed to food insecure families. While we were making the delivery, it came to our attention that there were additional families that would be blessed by receiving a meal. Five more meals and five $25 gift cards were purchased and delivered that evening to Faith Faith Family Kitchen for distribution. Thank you to all who donated time and resources to feed these hungry families!

Thanksgiving Meals 2020

Once again, we have the opportunity to provide Thanksgiving meals to struggling families who are served by Faith Family Kitchen in Hyannis. Kh. Alyssa will be collecting money to purchase the meals, and we will be delivering the meals to Faith on the evening of Thursday 11/19. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity!
Thanksgiving meal checks should be made out to St. Michael with “Thanksgiving Meals” in the memo. Please mail checks to:

St. Michael International Cookbook Project

We hope everyone is doing well through this pandemic and finding comfort in Faith, Family, Friends and Food!! Speaking of food… the Women of the Church started thinking about its next project. We are very excited about this and hope you will be, too…

Our parish is very fortunate to have the BEST cooks, bakers and chefs around and we would like them to share their recipes and memories about them in a St. Michael International Cookbook. Everyone can contribute, young and old, men/women/children, amateur cooks and kitchen veterans! Our plan is to have our cookbook ready this fall, preceding the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.

There are lots of categories to which you can contribute, with some dishes falling into more than one category. Feel free to submit as many recipes as you like. Remember that variety is the spice of life! Please also let us know if there is a dish you would like included, but do not make yourself.

Perhaps consider including a memory about your recipe(s) if you have any (for example, making it with your grandmother or your children). Sharing artwork or photos would also be welcome. Consider this a love letter to our heritage, our families, and our experiences. Your memories and comments will make that possible. We can help you with the process if you need it.

Categories for your submissions are:

  • Religious – example: Holy Bread; Memorial Wheat (Koliva)
  • Appetizers
  • Soups/Salads
  • Main Dishes
  • Side Dishes
  • Lenten Dishes
  • Kids’ Corner
  • Pastries/Desserts
  • Breakfast

Please, download the Recipe form, complete the form on your computer (without printing) and sent back to us with your recipe and information. This will minimize having to re-type and will help with editing formats. You can just email your recipe as well. If you have any questions or need some assistance, please contact us.
The deadline to submit the completed form is the end of summer.

With much love and thanks to you all,
Your Cookbook committee:

Thanks to Our St Michael’s Outreach Angels

Thanks to our outreach angels, St Michael was able to donate 90 reusable face masks to the staff and residents of Cataumet Village homeless shelter for families. We were able to turn out these masks in a record 10 days from call to action, to donation of supplies, to actual production.

God bless our Angels and thanks to all who made this such a successful project. The staff and residents of Cataumet are beyond grateful for all your hard work and dedication. Below are pictures of the staff from Cataumet with the food donation that Kh. Alyssa has been having delivered and with our masks for all residents and staff.
