If you have a need for prayers regarding a health issue, call Carrie at 763.295.3191. We will activate the chain and we will all be praying for your need.

Faith Filled Family Series: We are thrilled to be offering a new adventure for the whole family this year. Mark your calendars for November 19th from 6:00-7:30pm. We will be hosting a great event for Faith Formation Families with incredible and inspiring speakers for parents and fun Christ centered activities for students. All Faith Formation parents will listen to dynamic speakers while students participate in great Faith enriching activities. November’s theme for Family Night is “Made in the Image and Likeness of God”. Jean Stoplestad, Director of Marriage, Family and Life at the Archdiocese will be speaking to the women on “Motherhood”. Bill Dill, marriage preparation and youth ministry events coordinator for the Archdiocese, will be speaking to the men on “Fatherhood”. We will have Faith Filled Family nights on January 28th and March 11th as well.
Activities for the youth will be led by older students but we need adults to be present during this time. These nights will begin in the Worship Space with opening announcements to the theme of the night and family prayer. Students will then leave and come down to the Faith Formation classrooms and participate in crafts, skits, games, etc. In order to make these nights possible we need the whole parish to support and help with these faith forming events. We need 45 adult volunteers and 10 adult nursery volunteers to be present on the Faith Formation side of the evening. Adults will not be asked to lead the activities but be a presence and chaperone the students and children of the program. It would be wonderful to get as many Virtus trained volunteers without children in the program as possible. This will allow more of the parents to hear these fantastic speakers. Please click the link below to sign up to help with these great events!
The “Spirit on 7th Street” is a publication designed to communicate a variety of messages, focusing on news worthy information, efforts and events at St. Henry’s and our surrounding community. The newsletter will be distributed at least quarterly. It will be mailed out and available for down load on this web site.
