Holy Family Church, Mendota Heights, MN

In-Person Church Attendance Guidelines

Although capacity restrictions on church attendance have been lifted, we will continue to live-stream liturgies on Facebook and via the Church’s website: HolyFamilyMaroniteChurch.org. All those who feel safe and comfortable enough to attend in-person services are encouraged to do so. Parishioners who are sick or have symptoms potentially related to COVID-19 should refrain from coming to church.

  • Holy Communion will be given in the hand only.
  • Please use the hand sanitizer located at the main entrance upon entering the church.
  • Please do not bring any items which contain bleach into the church as it will damage the pews. The Church will be sanitized and disinfected after each public use.
  • The collection will be as usual, however, you may also submit your offering via U.S. Mail or online.
  • The Narthex will be closed before and after liturgy.

We look forward to the day when this virus will be gone and we will all gather together once again with no restrictions. Until then, we deeply appreciate your patience and understanding. These steps will be revisited constantly.

MYO Corner

The MYO would like to thank everyone who made our Father’s Day "survival" basket sale a success! At a recent meeting, the group picked grape leaves (waraq ‘enab) and learned how to freeze them. Gotta keep those traditions alive!! SAVE the DATE: The MYO will be holding a summer camp out from August 17-19 for youth, ages 12 – 17. Activities include canoeing, games, bonfires, and more!! Details to follow. Come join us at one or more of our summer meetings, Tuesday nights at 6 PM (normally at church). The MYO is growing. Please contact John Corey at 612.232.6377 or your favorite MYO kid with questions.

PLEASE, Don’t Forget 

There are many people in the world who are suffering in ways we cannot even imagine and not just because of the Coronavirus. Let’s not forget our families and friends, not just here in the States but also in Lebanon who have experienced and are still suffering from, a most devastating explosion. As you know, our parish has been asked to help "adopt" some families in Lebanon and you can help. For only $75.00 per month, you can help support one family in Lebanon. Please, during this time of need have compassion on our brothers and sisters in Lebanon and help if you can. We know you have all been very generous and compassionate and yet we ask you once again to ask yourself if you can help in some way to help alleviate their sufferings.

Thank you and God bless you.

Church Picnic July 11

The Men’s Club invites all parishioners to join them in the annual church picnic. Although we were not able to have one in 2020, it is back in full force in 2021. They will provide chicken, hot dogs, buns, beans and beverages. If you would like to bring a dish or dessert to share it is appreciated but not required. Tables and chairs will be set up outside where we can enjoy the weather and each other’s company. All are welcome. Thank you, Men’s Club!!!
