Together in Spirit


“He was chosen by the eternal Father as the trustworthy guardian and protector of his greatest treasures, namely, his divine Son and Mary, Joseph’s wife. He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying: ‘Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.’ ”

A Welcoming Community

Join us Tuesday, August 29 at 6:30 pm in St. Joseph’s Hall to hear an incredible mission of hope. Human trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry worldwide; it’s estimated that there are 30 million slaves in the world today. Buying and selling of children (average age 13, but as young as 8!) for the sex trade is big business in the US and even right here in Minnesota.

Slavery is the result of vulnerability, it flourishes when people can’t meet their basic needs, and lack the economic opportunity and education to do so. Homeless children, vulnerable kids from broken homes, and the foster care system are often “recruited” into this dark world and forced to work without pay, under threat of violence. Once they’re in, there’s no easy way out.

 Enter the Levensque family from CooLevensque Familyn Rapids, MN. They  felt a calling to help eradicate this dark world, and they are  teaming up with existing organizations throughout the US  that already have the infrastructure and the resources to  fight human trafficking, and they are taking this message on  the road with their non-profit organization called Love2Hope.

 Everyone in the Lino Lakes community and in St. Joseph’s  parish are invited to hear the Levesque family speak about  bringing hope to the hopeless, as they bring awareness to  areas of social injustice and connect individuals with tangible  ways that they can help solve the problems.


Funeral Notices

A funeral for Rosemary Parson on Wednesday, August 23 at 11:00 am, with visitation beginning at 10:00 am, followed by burial in St. Joe's Cemetery and luncheon in the Great Hall.

Gender ideology: colonizing — not cultivating — student minds

Our schools should be places where children are trained to pursue the true, the good and the beautiful — or, at the very least, equipped to honestly and rationally engage with objective reality. A school should be a place of education, not ideological instruction.

Revealed with fire

Bedouins are an exceptionally hardy, hospitable people. I learned this in the Holy Land from my friend Tony, a Catholic archaeologist who grew up in Jerusalem and is presently completing his dissertation on King David, examining his life in the rock and ruins. Tony tells me that he will sometimes employ Bedouins to work on his archaeological digs, especially during the blistering summer months.
