The Catholic Watchmen movement is coming to the Church of Saint Paul! The mission of this movement is to respond to Bishop Cozzen’s call to Catholic men to live up to their duty to be protectors, providers, and leaders of their families. Please watch for more information regarding a monthly opportunity for the men of the Church of Saint Paul to gather together beginning this fall. Contact Jona in the parish office (763.757.6910) for more information. You can also visit thecatholicwatchmen.com for more about the movement within our Archdiocese.
Save-the Date for our kickoff event on Friday, August 26!
As part of the Catholic Watchmen movement coming to COSP, all men are encouraged to attend a weekly hour of Adoration called the “Night Watch.” During this quiet time of prayer we will be praying for our families, youth, schools, priests, and culture. It is important for MEN to band together to help protect the family! Join us for the weekly "Night Watch" hour of prayer on Wednesdays at 11:00pm in the Chapel.

YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016
"Pope Francis has invited us to observe a special jubilee Year of Mercy starting December 8, 2015...As we enter this Year of Mercy we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare our hearts, not only to receive the gift of God's mercy, but also for the grace to be able to share that gift of mercy with others...however you prepare, I ask that you lift up your brothers and sisters to the Lord who are most in need of His mercy, and ask God how He might want to use you to be an instrument of His mercy during this special year." Fr. Tim Norris
Please join us each day at 3:00pm to pray the Novena and Chaplet of Divine Mercy as the church bells ring.
You can also listen to the latest "Mercy Minutes," those testimonies given before weekend Masses during the Year of Mercy:
