Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
We are pleased to share with you a few updates.

Most recently, she taught music at Holy Family Academy in St. Louis Park. Debra is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, where she studied music and elementary education. Debra is a member at Nativity of Mary Church in Bloomington, where she played in the bell choir and sang in Nativity’s Alleluia choir. Debra most recently bought a used church organ and is currently studying organ with Dr. Christopher Wallace, liturgist and music director at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Edina. She lives with her husband in Bloomington, and enjoys spending time with their two children and nine grandchildren.
As you probably know, forty of us recently returned home from a wonderful pilgrimage in Rome. We brought your prayer intentions to each of the holy sites we visited and we experienced your prayers for us as we journeyed through the Eternal City and Assisi.
There were many highlights, but one that stands out is that we saw Pope Francis!! We were also able to pray in the presence of the bones of Peter which are located underneath Saint Peter’s Basilica. We are excited to share with the parish a slide show on March 8th after the 8am and 10am Masses!
Additionally, we are excited to announce that the carpet project is moving forward. Depending on how things go, it may be installed before Holy Week, but there is a chance it will be after Easter. As we were making preparations and looking at the flooring in the church, it was brought to our attention that the wood flooring underneath the pews is in need of re-finishing. If possible, we hope to do this before installing the carpet. Hence we are in the process of obtaining a proxy from the Archdiocese to go forward with the project, which is needed because the total will be more than $25,000. The carpet will be covered by the Gala fundraising event as had been planned and the wood refinishing, costing about $6,400, will be covered by proceeds from the Traders Market and from areas in which we have been under budget. We will keep you posted as we learn more about the timing of the project. There will be about three weeks in which daily Mass will be in the old school building, while weekend Masses will remain in the main church.
God bless and have a wonderful Lent. Please keep praying for the parish!!
