We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening the church for in-person, limited seating, starting May 30th. Please make sure to read the guidelines presented here and register online before coming to the church. Your cooperation is crucial for the success of this reopening. Thank you for your understanding.
On Sunday, June 21, we will celebrate Father’s Day. We pray for all the fathers, both the living and the dead. And we remember our spiritual fathers in a special way. With the intercession of Saint Joseph, patron of the Holy Family, may the Lord bestow his blessings and mercy on them. A gesture of appreciation will be handed to the beloved fathers in the community.
This has been an unusual time in our lives. Some of us have actually had time to clean out those attics and storage spaces. With that in mind, please consider donating NEW items to the Silent Auction events. We will help you recycle those unused Christmas gifts and give them new life. Please, please, we can only use NEW ITEMS or ANTIQUE items.
The SILENT AUCTION committee welcomes new items of just about any category. There is almost always a theme basket in the works that it will fit into. The basket committee supplies items for the bingos, and other events throughout the year including the Fall Festival. If you have items you would like to donate, please contact Carolyn Marker at 612-270-0451 or send an email to email@example.com to let her know that you have left items.
YOU CAN DROP OFF AT CHURCH ONCE IT IS OPEN AGAIN OR CONTACT CAROLYN FOR PICK UP.
Saturday, June 13, is the feast day of Saint Anthony of Padua. Saint Anthony of Padua (15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231) lived 36 years full of teaching and preaching and converting even the worst criminals and sinners to the faith in Spain and Italy. His tong relics are still exposed in his great shrine of Saint Anthony of Padua in Padua close to Venice in northern Italy.
Monday, June 29, is the great Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul, the two major pillars of the church. In this day we pray to the Lord for the successors of Peter, especially his Holiness, Pope Francis, and all of our church leaders, particularly his Beatitude Cardinal Bechara Rahi, the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch, Elias Abdalla Zaidan, our Bishop and Bishop Bernard Hebda of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Paul and all bishops of the true faith.
Due to the current situation, classes are held on-line Wednesdays at 6:30 pm. Parents are invited to encourage and help their children participate in these classes from home. First Communion will be rescheduled this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Gary will be contacting families impacted by this situation.
