We Dedicate our work as an offering to God to whom nothing but our Best can be given ! Our duties consist of setting up the Credence Table for all Church Services. This consists of the Dressed Chalice containing Purificator; Paten with a Host Wafer;and Linen Pall covered with a veil. Then a Burse covers the complete Dressed Chalice. The Burse opens with a purficator and Corporal inside the Burse. A Lavabo Towel is also on the Credence table with a Lavabo and extra chalices each covered with a Purificator. One Cruet of Red Wine and One Cruet of Water is also on the Credence Table for each Service. The Gospel Book is placed at the Center of the Altar. Our duties include cleaning the vessels after the service and we assign the washing of linens to Altar Guild Members that are willing to wash, iron and return them. " Duty Makes us do things well. Love Makes us do things Beautifully." Phillip Brooks
Covid19 shut down our Community Dinner in early 2020. We hope to restart this popular gathering in the future.
The Giving Garden
God’s abundance and our hands
Tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, carrots and zucchini–our Giving Garden team cultivates them to give to our hungry neighbors. We relish the opportunity to share God’s abundance from spring through fall! Starting a few years ago, we built raised beds and planted vegetables to donate to Keystone’s food shelf in Roseville. With bigger beds, better access to water and critter-discouraging fencing, the new Giving Garden built for Austin Trapnell’s Eagle Scout project has resulted in larger harvests! Come Meet Christ, Be Christ while you get your hands dirty; contact Allison Jensen.
Knitting Ministry meets 2nd Thursday each month September through May from 1 pm – 2.30 pm in the Library. All are welcome, we never know who or how many will attend. Our main purpose is prayer shawls and lap blankets. To date well over 200 items have been knitted, blessed and delivered, these include baby caps, scarves for the troops, patchwork blankets for the homeless and Baptism stoles for St. Christopher’s
Meals on Wheels
The Parish has participated in the Meals on Wheels of Ramsey County program for many years. Meals on Wheels is an affordable nutrition program for elderly and disabled individuals offering various meal options (Kosher | diabetic | low salt | gluten-free | vegetarian | culturally specific ). These meals are delivered daily or weekly depending on the individual need. The visits also provide a daily/weekly safety check and assist participants with connections to other community services. The home delivered meals are made from scratch using local, organic ingredients whenever possible.
Sunday Tellers work in teams of two or three to count the plate offerings and pledges after the Sunday service. It takes about 40 minutes to an hour to count and record the offerings. Each team is responsible for 1 Sunday a month. Training is provided.
