Other activities & ministries

Choir

Our beautiful acoustic space is filled each Sunday at 10AM Mass with our talented parish choir and gorgeous pipe organ. The choir rehearses on Sunday just before and after 10AM Mass, so there is no extra weeknight commitment. Interested singers should contact David Bartlett at 651-239-6914.

Council of Catholic Women

The CCW is an association of women in the parish who assist with raising money for special purposes, such as special gifts to the school, Mass intentions and stipends, and other needs of the parish. The CCW also coordinates funeral luncheons in the social hall. For more information, please contact Mary DeLuney at 612-724-2856.

Donuts and Coffee

Each Sunday after 10AM Mass we offer coffee and donuts in our social hall as a way to provide hospitality for members and visitors. This is a popular weekly tradition for adults and children alike. Each week one family takes charge of the set up and clean up for the morning. Children enjoy this immensely. For more information please contact John Sondag at 612-729-7321.

The power of Christian prayer Come Lord Jesus!
Lord Jesus, master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas. We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day. We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us. We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom. We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence. We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light. To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"
