Upcoming Event:

Restorative Justice and Healing Event for the Clergy Abuse Crisis

In the wake of the clergy abuse scandal, the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis has led the way with programs addressed at healing the harm. Janine Geske, former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice and Marquette Law School professor, has led conversations on restorative justice at the Vatican and throughout the world. Justice Geske will lead restorative justice programs at four locations in February:

  • St. Mary of the Lake in White Bear Lake: Wednesday, February 20, 7-9 pm
  • St. Odilia in Shoreview: Thursday, February 21, 7-9 pm
  • University of St. Thomas School of Law Mpls Campus: Friday, February 22, 12:30-1:30 pm
  • St. Thomas More in St. Paul: Saturday, February 23, 10 am-12 pm (in the church)

Justice Geske will be joined by Father Dan Griffith from Our Lady of Lourdes and the St. Thomas School of Law. Father Griffith will introduce restorative justice in a biblical and theological context. Justice Geske will then share more about this work from her experience and introduce and conduct healing circles. Details:

Pastoral Care
Pastoral Care means responding to the needs of parishioners as they arise, to reach out and offer help where it may be needed. Please contact Carol Arend if you are in need of pastoral care or if you are interested in becoming involved with this ministry: email or call 651-227-7669 x 305.

Homebound/Infirm Care
Lay Ministers bring the Eucharist and prayer to those who are unable to attend Mass; they become the link between the Church and home. Infirm visits are made whenever we are aware that someone is having special care.

Prayer Line
Prayers are offered for those who are sick, in life transitions, in the military or who have died. Our prayer team holds them and their families in prayer. If you would a name added to our prayer line please contact Carol Arend, Associate of Pastoral Care.
