Liturgy Help Needed 

Ever thought you'd make a good lector or greeter? Felt moved to share in the distribution of Holy Communion? We need your help! Please contact Patrick Henning at (651) 696-5430 or if you're able to lend a hand in these important ways.  Thank you!

Dedication of Mary Major 

Tomorrow we celebrate the first church dedicated to Our Lady, St. Mary Major in Rome. Legend has it that a miraculous snow fell in the fourth century at the height of the Roman summer (depicted above left), inspiring a wealthy family to build the Basilica. To this day, the church rains white rose petals on its congregation on August 5 in honor of "Our Lady of the Snows."

Sunday's Readings

The first and second readings explore God's plan of salvation beginning with Abraham's faith and manifesting itself especially at the first Passover. And in Matthew's Gospel, Jesus offers the parable of vigilant servants, reminding us to live every day like it's our last.
