BROKEN ROSARY?

If you have a broken rosary that you would like repaired and returned, or rosaries that are broken and not being used, we invite you to bring them to the St. Bridget Campus and leave them on the rack by the Emerson Avenue entrance (near the baptistery). If you’d like your rosary returned to you for your own use, please leave it in an envelope with your name and address on it. Otherwise, they will be left on the rack for others to use them or take them home.


EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Eucharist.jpg

 

Eucharistic Adoration is offered each Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

 

As schedules and seasons change, some folks who have been committed to Eucharistic Adoration for many years find themselves needing to change their scheduled hour or withdraw from adoration on a regular basis. At the present time, we find ourselves in need of several people to cover various times between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. If you are interested in spending a quiet hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament each Friday, please call Alice Wortman at 612-521-4005612-521-4005 or the Parish Office during regular office hours.



Unable to Attend Mass?

BEREAVEMENT MINISTERS

Given the number of funerals our parish community celebrates each year, there are—at any given time—members of the parish who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. Sometimes grief can cause physical, emotional, and spiritual pain and make a person feel isolated and alone. If you would like to learn the skills to walk with people through their grief, we invite you to call Sr. Gert or the Parish Office. We are presently gathering the names of interested individuals and then will set up a time for training.


SACRISTANS NEEDED


Volunteers are needed for both the St. Bridget Campus and the St. Austin Campus. When volunteers have come forward, we will schedule a training session. Please call the Parish Office during regular hours to express your interest.

Your loved one will also be listed in the bulletin for 2-3 weeks, they will continue to be remembered in prayer by our Prayer Chain Ministry, even though their names may not be listed in the bulletin.




RIDES WANTED

Some parishioners who are accustomed to walking to Mass may need a ride from one campus to another. If you are a parishioner with a van or have room in your car for one or more people, consider offering a ride to those who may need one. Call the Parish Office 612-529-7779 to let us know if you need a ride or are able to offer a ride.


PARKING AT ST. AUSTIN CAMPUS


In addition to the two small parking lots on the south side of the church, weekend Mass goers may also park in the Noble Academy parking lot. This parking lot can be accessed from Upton Avenue or through the alley between Upton and Thomas Avenues.

 

DO NOT PARK IN ANY WAY THAT WOULD BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY OR GARAGE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING AT THE ST. AUSTIN CAMPUS.


NO PARKING, PLEASE!


When parking in the small lot on the south side of St. Austin’s, DO NOT BLOCK the driveway and garage access to the white house closest to the church door. This is a private home and parked cars prevent them from getting in or out of their garage.
There is NO PARKING to the left of the handicapped spaces.
