The Bread of Life: The Eucharist in Galilee - Small Group

Join Missy Rodriguez for 6 weeks starting Sunday, February 18 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm for the Art of Sourdough baking class where you will receive a sour dough starter and learn about the Eucharist.

The Bread of Life: The Eucharist in Galilee shares Christ's teaching about the Eucharist and that it was not reserved solely for the Last Supper. Rather, this profound mystery is the crescendo of Jesus' entire ministry: all his work in Galilee prepared for and pointed to the Eucharist. Join Dr. Tim Gray in Bread of Life: The Eucharist in Galilee for an exciting series about Jesus' teaching on the Eucharist.

To inquire or sign up contact Missy Rodriguez by email: or by phone: 651.235.9915.

Maximum of 12 people. 


One Day at A Time  - Small Group

All parishioners, especially those that are "newer" to St. Joe's and/or new to small groups/Bible studies, are invited to participate in a brand new Sunday morning small group! This stems from the Archdiocesan Synod, which encourages all parishioners to be involved in a small group. Small groups build community and we want YOU to join us!

As a co-ed group, we welcome singles and couples, young, old and everyone in between! For just 1.5 hours, after the 10:00 AM Mass on 5 Sunday's, we will focus on the daily reflection emails of Matthew Kelly's, "Dynamic Catholic". Topics will vary each day, but all provide thought-provoking information. We will also discuss the Sunday gospels, talk about our faith in today's world, and try to improve our Catholic lives, one day at a time!

Dates: February 25, March 3, 10, 17, 24

Time: 11:15 am to 12:30 pm 

Location: Rooms 105-106 at St. Joe’s

Cost: Free--just sign up for the emails from Dynamic Catholic:

Registration: please email
