Parish Mission 2023

We are called to love generously as Jesus loves generously. His love is the ultimate gift. He gave us many gifts to remember His love for us - the most significant is the gift of the Eucharist.
 
We will encounter this gift during our upcoming parish mission through multiple events planned for all of us. There are events designed to engage particular audiences and bring us together through March 4. These events are meant to draw us together as a community that is in love with Jesus and help us draw closer to him as we learn more about His presence in the Eucharist. Register below or call the parish office at 952.469.4481.
 
 
 
February 10 - Middle School Fusion
6-8pm, in the commons
Explore the Gift of the Eucharist
Middle schoolers are invited to learn more about the mystery of the Eucharist.
 
How do we know the Eucharist is the real presence of Jesus Christ? Has anyone ever seen it – is there any proof? The answer is YES! Come explore the gift of the Eucharist from a scientific perspective in a “lab” as we take a closer look at real Eucharistic miracles throughout history. Learn more about the truly amazing nature of the body and blood of Christ through hands-on activities with special “guest” Dr. McScience! Enjoy all the other regular activities that happen at each FUSION – great snacks, fun games, and prayer time. This event is free.
 
 
February 11 - Men's Event
8am - Noon
Defend the Gift of the Eucharist
As men of All Saints, in our Catholic faith, we know that Jesus is the real presence in the Eucharist. Do we appreciate this gift? Do we know how to defend this gift to those we encounter who may question how it is possible? 

Presenter Father Connor McGinnis serves at the Church of St. Michael (St. Michael, MN), is a gifted apologetics speaker, and will share from the depths of the Church’s understanding of the person of Jesus. He will also share the role of the Eucharist in his own life and discernment of his vocation.
 
There will also be a panel discussion with men of the parish on the mission of defending the Eucharist in today’s world. This event includes breakfast, engaging discussion, prayer, Mass, and adoration. This event is free to attend. Childcare is available, please email [email protected] to reserve your spot.
 
Please register by February 8.
 
 
 
February 25 - Cana Dinner
Share the Gift of the Eucharist
As Catholic married couples, in the sacrament of marriage, a promise is made to share the gift of our faith which includes passing the gift of the Eucharist to our families. Do we appreciate this gift? Do we share this gift with our families and all of those we encounter?

Chuck was a local news anchor in St. Louis before starting his own production company and hosting The Inner Life on Relevant Radio for over ten years.
