Air Conditioning Help

We are very blessed at St. Louis Church to provide our parishioners and friends with soothing air conditioning during the hot summer months. As you know that comes with a cost similar to air conditioning your own home only much larger. There will be a second collection to help out with this added summertime expense this weekend at all of the Masses. Thank you in advance for your generous help.

Consider Electronic Giving

Do you plan to spend weekends out of town this summer? Have you ever misplaced your church envelopes when it is time to leave for Mass? Consider Electronic Giving. There is no fee associated or minimum amount required to use this method of giving. Funds can be deducted from a savings or checking account and St. Louis receives 100% of your intended donation. It is easy to sign up for and easy to cancel or change. Please call the parish office to learn more about EFT-Electronic Funds Transfer, 651-224-3379.

Pictorial Directories

We recently received the proof for our parish directory and the final copies will soon be printed and distributed to those parishioners who had their photo taken. Thank you for your patience in this process.

Parking

A Capitol security officer patrolling the Andersen Parking Ramp that is used by St. Louis Church noted that several vehicles were parked in the disability parking stalls on the lowest level of the ramp. In an effort to avoid costly citations, please remember the disability/accessible stalls throughout the entire ramp are enforced 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Additionally, stalls that have a sign indicating “FMD Parking” are also enforced 24/7. You are welcomed to use the non-accessible spaces in the Andersen Parking Ramp for weekend Masses at St. Louis Church. Thank you.

The Catholic Spirit is the official newspaper of the Archdiocese. It is an excellent way to keep up on Catholic news, issue analysis, and reflections on Catholic living.

Team Louie and the Catholic Charities Service Project

Every second Sunday of the month, approximately 20 enthusiastic and dedicated members of our parish come together to prep and serve meals for about 175–200 needy people in the community. It is a humbling and uplifting service project for all team members involved plus a wonderful way to meet new friends from our parish. Besides serving the dinner guests, team members have the privilege to share fellowship with those they serve. If you’d like to join the team, please contact RoseMary Januschka for further information at rmjanuschka@gmail.com or 651-769-4119.

Requests for Masses and Bells 2019

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Adoration extends its influence far beyond the individual adorers, touching their homes and families and reaching out to the parish community and beyond. (Pope Paul VI)

St. Louis offers Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 11 am, immediately before the 12:10 pm Wednesday Mass.

Eucharistic Ministers

St. Louis Church is very much in need of Eucharistic Ministers to help out at all of the weekend Masses. If you would be willing to volunteer an hour of your time while you are at Sunday Mass it would be most appreciated. As our faith teaches us, we are called to serve. Being a Eucharistic Minister does not require that you be a reader at Mass. Please call or email the parish office at 651-224- 3379 or markmstlouis@comcast.net.

Free Parking

Ample free parking is available for weekend Masses (as well as those which fall on “bank” holidays) just steps from St. Louis Church in the Andersen Human Services Building parking ramp across 10th Street. Enter through the “Contract” entrance from Minnesota Street. You can descend to street level either through the stairway at the corner of 10th and Minnesota, or by the elevators located in the opposite (northwest) corner of each level. Ascending back to your parking level can only be done via the elevator. If the barrier is down at the exit, approach slowly and the gate will open. Note that the church also has a small parking lot off 10th Street, and parking is allowed right next to the church on 10th Street during weekday masses.

Lose Something?

Did you lose your reading glasses or sunglasses? Forgot your Bible or prayer book? Gloves or mittens, some jewelry or keys? We may have them. Our lost and found box has a number of things we’ve found in the church or the chapel. If you think we may have something of yours feel free to visit the sacristy after any of the Masses.

Any Changes?

If you have changed your address, telephone number or email address, or you wish to receive or discontinue contribution envelopes, please call the parish office to update your records and preferences at 651-224-3379.
