Greetings from St. Michael Parish and welcome to our web site!
I’m Father John Frost, the pastor of St. Michael. I came here in July of 2010. I have been pastor of a number of rural parishes in western Iowa. St. Michael's is a parish of 600 families with a mix of all ages. As a result, we regularly celebrate baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
We support Catholic education along with the five other Shelby County Parishes by maintaining Shelby County Catholic School (Preschool -- 6th grade). The school building is on the St. Michael's campus. St. Michael's also supports formation for youth through our Children's and Youth Ministries programs which begin with Baptism through 12th grade.
We are located in Harlan, which is in west central Iowa. Harlan is a county seat with about 5000 residents. We are 10 miles north of Interstate 80 on US 59.
If you want to stop by to visit we would be happy to have you stop by.
Have a blessed day!
