Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday blessings to you all! Here is our Mass for the Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time with our presider Fr. Ken Pierre assisted by Deacon Tom Konkel.

Bible Study - Eucharist

We are excited to announce a new FORMED Bible Study! When we think of how the Mass or the Eucharist is presented in the Bible, likely the first passages that come to mind are the Gospel accounts of the Last Supper when Jesus celebrated the Jewish Passover and broke bread with His Apostles. 

Over the sessions of this Bible Study on the Eucharist, Dr. Brant Pitre shows us the prefigurements of and teachings about this sacrament, and how they are found in numerous books of both the Old and New Testaments. Join us as we learn why the Church has always referred to the Eucharist as the "source and summit of Christian Life," and why it is so important for us today.

  • What: Eucharist Bible Study
  • When: November 4, 11, 18, December 2, 9 and 16, January 6, 13, 20, 27, February 3, and 10.
  • Time: 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
  • Where: In the Worship Space
  • Cost: Study guides will be provided at a cost of $20. Couples may choose to share a copy. 

On November 11 in addition to our Eucharist study we will also watch and discuss the The Mass of Corpus Christi homily by Fr. Mike Schmitz, notable for his many videos on Catholic Teachings and most recently voted top "5" Apple podcast for “Bible in a year.”

Come join us for Bible Study of fun, learning, and deepening our faith! Sign-up by clicking the register button below or call parish office at 651.784.3015.

Updated Guidelines for Masses

We at St. Joseph of the Lakes continue to follow Archdiocesan and Minnesota Department of Health Guidelines for best practices regarding Covid-19 in celebrating the Mass and other operations here at St. Joe’s.

The mask mandate has been lifted. We recommend that those who have not been vaccinated or care for a person who is immunocompromised to continue to wear a mask for Mass. If you are ill or caring for someone who is ill, please continue to watch the Mass online as the dispensation from our Sunday Mass obligation is still in effect in these cases.

Our parish has returned to congregational singing and our priests and lay ministers are processing in at the beginning of Mass and out at the end of Mass. W have also returned to processing up for communion (Body and Blood) and social distance requirements in the pews are being relaxed. We will have sections of pews available for those who prefer to social distance.

If you have any questions regarding Covid-19 procedures here at St. Joe’s please contact Amy Moore at [email protected]

*By attending the 5:00 pm Mass on Saturdays you agree to be filmed for our recorded online Mass.
