It is through tithes and offerings to the Church, especially the local parish, that the "Good News" of our what our Lord has accomplished for us can continue to be spread in this local community and that the spiritual needs of those who call this parish community their home can be met.  Furthermore, it is the means by which this parish can continue to simply stay open - to pay its expenses (utilities, maintenance, clergy support, etc.)

The Biblical model of giving is to “tithe” or give 10% of your income.  Not only does the Lord ask us to give in this way, He also asks us to make offerings above and beyond the tithe. Additionally, He wants us to do so cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).  This might be difficult, especially in a day and age where being in debt has become normal.  None the less, the Lord wants us to give first to Him, through His Church (His Body).  Consider how much you spend on entertainment (Netflix, movies, games...) or electronics or on eating out, or coffee...  It isn't wrong to enjoy those things, but God wants us to learn to put Him first.  To see how you "stack up" take a look at this chart below.  If tithing is something new to you, then at least try to give some percentage of your income that is manageable with your budget.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

St. Michael's is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Wilmington and the local area. 

More Information >


The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >


Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
