Join us on Tuesday, December 16, at 7 pm for an Advent showing of the 2006 film The Nativity Story, a drama that focuses on the events leading up to the birth of Christ. In the words of one review, “though the New Testament is sparse on details about Mary and Joseph, the thoughtful screenplay of Mike Rich, a practicing Christian, manages to flesh them out while remaining faithful to Scripture, beautifully suggesting the humanity beneath the halos.”
The Nativity Story is rated PG and is suitable for adolescents as well as adults, so feel free to bring your older children with you. We will begin the film, which runs for an hour and 45 minutes, at 7:00 p.m., and take some time afterwards for people to share their thoughts on it. We will provide the popcorn. Feel free to bring other snacks to share with your fellow parishioners.
By now, parishioners and friends have likely received our Annual Report either in the mail or at Mass. Our financial position has improved this last fiscal year, and we have begun pledging our stewardship for the year to come. Please join us by pledging how you will give back to the Lord your time, talent, and treasure. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
On Sunday, November 16, approximately 200 people attended a celebration to witness the lighting of our historic church and steeple. While the project is not fully complete, it makes a beautiful addition to the skyline of Minneapolis. Relive the lighting here. We thank the generous couple whose gift made this lighting project possible.
