Phone a Friend/Parishioner/Neighbor

 

We are in the middle of the dark days of winter as well as this pandemic and people are in great need of talking and visiting with others!! A challenge to parishioners: Contact/call/reach out to at least one person this week! Reach out to anyone you’ve not seen or connected with in a while—you might think that they're getting enough contact and are 'fine'--but, they just may need your call....and you may need it too! Share this message with others. Contact Barb Uschold Anderson, Pastoral Minister for additional resources for those who are in need at 651-784.3015.

Easter Cards!! Offer Joy & Care

 

 

Thank you to so many wonderful people who offered Valentines of care!...PLEASE, let’s offer our neighbors, homebound parishioners, and Care Center residents some Easter Joy!  PLEASE, take a bit of time out of your day and write/make some Easter cards or notes preferably with a message of hope & joy for us to deliver to our care center residents and some of our homebound parishioners. Please note, at this time we do not need blank cards, we need signed cards with a written message ready to share-thanks! Drop off at Parish Office, marked "Easter Cards” by March 29, 2021. 

Homebound Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Have you felt the Holy Spirit opening your heart to something new? We are in need of a few more homebound Eucharistic ministers-Extraordinary Ministers. With the current pandemic and protocol surrounding visits (under 15 min, masked, physically distanced) we really NEED some persons under the age of 65. If you are interested, please contact Barb Uschold Anderson, Pastoral Minister, at the parish office for more information. This will be a gift to another and surprisingly a gift to you.
