Dispensation to be Lifted July 1
As the pandemic subsides and public gathering restrictions and safety protocols are lifted, it is time to gather as the Body of Christ once again. Therefore, the bishops and diocesan administrators of the Minnesota Catholic Conference have decided to reinstate the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation beginning the weekend of July 3-4, 2021.

Donation Bin Relocation
All HFS bins are now located at the rear (south) entrance to the church. During COVID, there were also bins at the chapel entrance, but we have cleared that area of clutter and those bins have been relocated to the rear entrance. Thank you for feeding our community!
Looking for Something?
Now that Adoration is back in the Chapel, we have decided to move the candles out of that location. Over the years, all the candle soot not only made the walls and ceiling dirty, but the fumes made breathing difficult for some, especially those with respiratory conditions.

We are actively finding a place and system for votive candles in the sanctuary. In the meantime, please do not light candles, bring your own, or light any flame on church property until our new votive candles are installed.

Thank you for your patience as we make this transition!
