We are the Church, A Community that Walks Together

09.28.20

    Our changed world has reminded us that how we connect as a faith community is critical to our continued strength and vitality. At Guardian Angels we believe that parishioners are the Church and that their support and involvement are essential. We continue to seek new ways to gather and invite you to participate in ways that are comfortable and meaningful for you.
    Please take a few moments to review these options and consider how you would like to best serve Guardian Angels. If you feel called to participate in a particular ministry, please contact the staff liaison listed and a they will reach out to discuss current needs. Thank you for continuing to walk with Guardian Angels and our various community outreach and faith-filled ministries.

     

    Adult Faith Formation

    Since growing, understanding and practicing our faith is a life-long adventure, we like to offer opportunities for doing just that. We are planning to offer more “virtual” experiences. Your ideas and suggestions are encouraged!

    Small Group Facilitators and Leaders are especially needed. Zoom-capable, with an area of expertise, able to create webinars, or facilitate meaningful, respectful dialogue around issues of faith or prayer experiences. Do you have ideas? Contact MaryPat Potts at or 651-789-3178 to discuss.

    Social Justice & Outreach

    Would you like to join an existing team to help shape what social  justice work looks like at Guardian Angels? The Justice and Outreach Commission might be for you. Minimum commitment of once monthly; additional activities as you are able.

    NEW racial justice team is at work  and there is still room for your voice and vision. Help implement a renewed parish commitment to racial justice.  

    For either of these opportunities, contact Suzanne Bernet at  .
