St. Michael’s Woodshop, originally a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, re-opened last year under the guidance of executive director James Smith, a board of directors and two sponsor parishes; Church of the Assumption in Fairport and St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish in Rochester. St. Michael’s teaches teens life skills through woodworking. Students say the support they receive there from peers and mentors makes it a special place.
