Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, Associate Professor of Justice and Peace Studies at the University of St. Thomas will facilitate a discussion on Authentic Hope in our hurting world. This workshop will focus on authentic hope, facing problems honestly, the possibility of making difficult changes with “soft landings” and ways in which we can embody hope through faithful actions.
We are upgrading the playground with new equipment and will be tearing out the old equipment on the north side of the church. We will need more people than usual and lots and lots of strong people to remove the playground equipment and pea gravel. The flower beds need to be cleaned up and prepared for planting and the church needs a spit and polish. If you can help us with these projects, please call the parish office at 763-545-1443 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
