Our parish is blessed to welcome Deacon Ralph Poyo the weekend of December 13 & 14 to preach at each Mass. Then he will give a vibrant and dynamic talk on December 14 at 6pm in the Ministry Center! We will be joined by members of St. Mary of the Lake and St. Pius X for this special event. This is a free event with hospitality to follow.
Deacon Ralph Poyo grounds his ministry in his relationship with the Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit. He has been in ministry for over 30 years, serving the Church as a youth minister and catechist, and he became a deacon in 2004. He founded a new Ohio-based apostolate called New Evangelization Ministries that serves pastors and parish staff, equipping them with training, resources, and strategies for evangelization. Deacon Poyo leads parish missions as well as retreats for men, women, youth, and parish staff around the country. He and his wife, Susan, have five daughters, a son-in-law, and two grandchildren. He is extremely passionate about helping people experience the person of Christ in everyday life. Learn more. See more.

With the ever present plight of Minnesota families living in poverty, hunger is closer than we think, and the need for food shelves is greater than many people realize, even in the Mahtomedi area.
As the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf continues to fulfill its mission to serve families in the community, we are grateful for how you have always responded to your neighbors’ needs.
The Food Shelf, along with local civic groups, businesses, churches, our school district, community education and many volunteers, is proud to sponsor the Tree of Light and Remembrance, the Food Shelf’s biggest fundraiser.
Purchasing a light for the Tree of Light in honor or memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to cherish someone who has been an inspiration to you and your family.
This is the 14th year of the event thanks to Michael McGlinch’s wish to serve the community through the Food Shelf. It has grown into a beautiful tradition to support those in need.
