IN YOUR KINDNESS... please pray for all the sick who are being remembered by our Prayer Ministry and, in a special way: Diane Andre, Mary Ann Carter, Rita Holmes, Wally Ladwig, Kay Larson, Evie Lausen, Pam Murphy, Duane Nelson, Christopher Nyberg, Vivian Provo, Bob & Joan Roos, Theresa Ross, Justin Smith and Family, and Helen Stock. In your charity, remember the soul of Ed Corbett, brother of Patty Corbett, who died last week. May his soul and the souls of all the Faithful Departed rest in peace!

SOUP SUPPERS start on Friday, February 12th. The Social Justice Committee will host this Supper. We are in need of hosts for February 9th, & 26th and March 18th. Please call the parish office if your organization is able to provide soup, bread and a light dessert on any of the above dates.
Due to a generous grant from the Catholic Community Foundation, we have been gifted with a free NET retreat, which will be held at St. Austin Campus on Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 5:00-9:00 PM. The NET Retreat will be open for students in grades 7-12 and all students are welcome to bring a friend. The retreat will be of no cost to students, but we do need to know how many will be coming so that there will be enough NET staff and provide adequate food for meal times. If you’re interested in attending or want more information, call Mary Majkozak, Director of Faith Formation at 612-521-7454 or Alex Schindler, Coordinator of Youth Ministry at 612-529-7779 ext. 312.
Another Successful Tea
What an awesome group of folks to work with. The list of thank you’s could go on and on. The Tea committee was a fun group to plan an event with. The servers did a great job and were so attentive to their ―customers‖. Hostesses—did such a lovely job with their tables. Thanks to those who sponsored a table, for all those who stayed and helped clean up, as well as those who help with the set up. Rick and gang did a marvelous job with the food. Father Anthony with the slides and stories of St. Bridget was so well done. Thanks to Jean Eidem for keeping good track of all our registrations. Oh yes, thanks to Mike and your helpers for the lovely and tasty ―snowflake‖ rosettes. Sister Gert
