a little about me

Blessings and peace to all through our Lord Jesus Christ! Welcome to my blog. My name is Fr. Michael Schumacher. I am a Catholic Priest for the Archdiocese of Edmonton, ordained in 2010. Currently I am assigned the care of three rural parishes in the Archdiocese. I thank God everyday for my faith and what He has done for all of us through His Son Jesus Christ. It is my hope that this site will help others to experience what I myself have been so privileged to receive through God’s infinite grace. Do not be afraid. Open your heart to love!

  1. Good morning Father Michael. I missed chatting with you yesterday at mass, but I am thanking you for always helping me understand the word of God in such a fine manner. You have a way of explaining the readings so that everyone can really get what is meant for us to understand. Sometimes I can go to mass and not really come out of mass feeling fulfilled but you always make me feel so full of understanding.
    Thanks again God willing I will see you at mass on sunday.

    • Thank you Colleen 🙂 I am grateful for your affirmation! May the Lord bless you and continue to give you understanding and insight into His Divine Word, Jesus Christ. May the Lord bless you and lead you to the Father’s love and mercy. God be with you sister!

      In Christ,
      Fr. Michael

  2. Not a day goes by with out me reflecting on your impact on my life and your visits and prayers which helped me get through the past two years. I think of you daily and [pray that you will succeed in your new endeavours. Even as I type this message, tears come to my eyes, for I know deep in my heart I will miss your homilies and your words of encouragement and support. Bless you Father for being who you are and for entering my heart, and for bringing me closer to Christ, our Lord.

    • You are welcome brother and thank you so much Bill! You bless me with your words of gratitude. Thank you too for your perseverence in all of your struggles. You were a great example to me as well brother. May God continue to bless you and your family always and draw you even closer to Himself in loving trust.

      • I pray things are going well for you. I pray your studies are becoming easier and your grasp of the language has improved tremendously. Congratulations on completing your first year. I still miss your visits and homilies. Since October, 2016, Sylvia and I have been working on my Aunt’s estate. Unfortunately she and her late husband were hoarders, so we have been cleaning out the house and garage. We gave away 4 cube vans of items to St. Vincent de Paul Society and 2 cube vans of items to the Diabetes Association. As well we threw away 2 12 cubic meter bins of stuff.
        Things are going well with my leg. I am walking in the house with out a cane at times and I use either a cane or a walker out side. Will you be visiting Vegreville any time in the near future. I and Sylvia would love to see you again.
        Yours in Christ.

        Bill and Sylvia Smolak

  3. it is so good to hear from you FR. Michael. Hope that with God’s Blessings you are doing well with your studies and that the earthquake was not too close to you. I pray everyday for your safety and good health as you are away. Keep you in my prayers and thoughts until you are safe at home again.

  4. Hope this finds you healthy and happy and the grace of God is with you always. Had a potluck dinner for Father Lua on Sunday after mass and was thinking about you and the lovely meal we had when you left. I am so glad that you are enjoying your studies and time is going so that you may come home and see us again. I hope that the spirit of Christmas is upon you and you are looking forward to your mom coming to see you! You told us that she may be coming for Christmas and what a blessing. I will continue praying for your happiness and health and may God bless you with help with your studies!!

  5. I can’t believe that this year is nearly half over. Time flies as you get older. What took a few minutes to do when I was younger now takes half a day. It seems like our get up and go has gotten up and gone leaving us behind. Or maybe our age is catching up to us. Anyway, Father Michael, I hope to hear from you soon.
    Bless you and your endeavours.
