Our parish community will gather for Mass on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29 at 9:00 am at the flag pole. You are welcome to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on. In case of inclement weather, the Mass will be held in the Chapel off of the Worship Space.

New Parishioners Parish Scavenger Hunt: Sunday, June 4 at 11:00 am

All New Parishioners--and those that are not so new--are invited to a campus-wide Scavenger Hunt! Because our church campus is so large, it is hard to know where everything is located. Working in teams, you may have to find a spatula in the kitchen or perhaps say a prayer in the Historic Church! You'll learn a lot, meet some other parishioners and enjoy some refreshments! Take an hour and connect with our parish community!

  • Date: Sunday, June 4, 2023
  • Time: 11:00-12:00 noon (After the 10:00 AM Mass)
  • Location: Meet in Room ??? 

RSVP: [email protected] or call 651.784.3015

Celebrating over 126 Years of Ordination: Saturday, June 17, 2023 at the 5:00 pm Mass

St. Joseph of the Lakes is excited to celebrate our three ordained men for their 126 plus years of ministry! Fr. Ken Pierre recently celebrated his 60th anniversary, Fr Mike is celebrating his 40th on May 28 and Deacon Tom Konkel is celebrating 27 years of being in the Deaconate this September. Our parish is hosting a special Mass and reception on Fathers' Day weekend. Archbishop Hebda is our presider for Mass on Saturday, June 17 at 5:00 pm. A special recognition of service presentation takes place at the end of Mass that includes gifts from our parish to Fr. Ken, Fr. Mike and Deacon Tom. An Open House style reception takes place afterwards in the Great Hall with light hors d'oreuvres and refreshments of  beer, wine and soda.

If you would wish to contribute to the gifts from our parish simply put your check made out to St Joseph of the Lakes with "ordination gifts" in the memo line into the weekly offering basket, or mail them, or drop them off at the Parish Office during business hours. Help us celebrate the consecrated life of these three men.
