About St. Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael is an archangel, a spiritual warrior in the battle of good versus evil. He is considered a champion of justice, a healer of the sick, and the guardian of the Church. In art Saint Michael is depicted with a sword, a banner, or scales, and is often shown vanquishing Satan.
(See our St. Michael The Archangel basque relief at the entrance to the church)
Prayer to St Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl around the world seeking the ruin of souls, Amen.

New to St Michael's?
A warm welcome to all visitors and new parishioners!
We have plenty of information for new parishioners wanting to get involved in the parish, for returning Catholics or for those wanting more information on the Catholic faith.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands where this Church now stands, pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within this community.
Ashgrove's native name is 'Kallindarbin' and was originally inhabited by the indigenous 'Turrbal' or 'Duke of York clan'. The main thoroughfare, Waterworks Road, was built on a Turrbal pathway that led to Mount Coot-tha, a place of the 'Honey-Bee Dreaming' and to the Enoggera Reservoir.
