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 or 651-769-4119.

Holy Hours for Vocations

Each month, the Holy Hour for Vocations will take place at a different parish in the Archdiocese. Come spend an hour with Jesus each month to pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, consecrated lie and diaconate.

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 immediately following the 12:10PM Wednesday Mass until 2PM.

Godspeed, Fritz

We are sad to announce that our long-time custodian, Fritz Eckman, will be leaving St. Louis, King of France for medical reasons. For twenty-one years, Fritz poured his heart and soul into our Little French Church. We will miss his energy, efficiency, expertise and sense of humor. We ask that you please keep Fritz in your hearts and prayers.

Welcome, Father Roland!

We are happy to announce that a fourth Marist priest has joined the staff at St. Louis, King of France. An insert with details about Father Roland A. Lajoie, S.M. can be found in the Sept 2nd bulletin or by clicking here. Please extend a warm welcome to Father Roland as he joins our Little French Church.

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

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.

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. Note that if you’ve been a member for a few years we may not have an email address on file for you yet.
