Together in Spirit

Prayer & Spirituality

Contact Barb Ushould Anderson at [email protected] or at 651-784-3015 ext 112 with any questions about these programs.

At St. Joseph of the Lakes we have many opportunities for sharing prayer requests, receiving or making a prayer shawl and participating in various prayer groups or reflection retreats.

Prayer Network
The Prayer Network has been a profound support to numerous persons in need. You may also place prayer requests in the prayer vase found in the chapel or in the prayer book located on the St. Joseph altar in the Historic Church. Requests for prayers can be made to Barb Uschold Anderson at (651) 784-3015 ext. 112 or [email protected] Contact Barb also if you would like to volunteer for the prayer network to pray for requests.

Prayer Shawls or Pocket Prayer Shawls
Knitted or crocheted shawls or pocket prayer shawls are distributed to the sick and those in need to assure them they are wrapped in prayer, love and are not forgotten by our community.  Contact the parish office at (651) 784-3015 to request a shawl for someone in need or to pick up a kit to make a shawl.

Centering Prayer
Community members 
meet each Thursday at 7:00pm to share Centering Prayer which is a silent meditative prayer where each person experiences God's indwelling presence. Center prayer augments more active modes of prayer by building a personal relationship with God and moving beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.

Women's Reflections

Navigating through our busy lives with God at the center can be a challenge. All women are invited to join us for a Make & Take Reflection: an opportunity to pray, reflect, and create with other women.  Like a Paint & Wine party with prayer & reflection included! Childcare will be available!  Allow yourself the opportunity to let the Holy Spirit move through you as you create, pray, and socialize with other women. $15 Freewill donation includes most supplies and morning refreshments.
