Thank You Father Galarza

Thank you Fr. Galarza!


God Bless you in your new assignment! This is the last weekend with our beloved associate pastor, Fr. Edison Galarza serving us. We have been blessed to have him serving at both St. Nicholas and Guardian Angels since February of 2018. Fr. Galarza will begin his new dual assignment at Risen Savior Church in Burnsville and Regions Hospital in St. Paul on July 1. He will offer the Sunday Spanish Mass at Risen Savior, and serve as chaplain for the Spanish speaking patients at Regions Hospital. Fr. Galarza has been a great joy to be with! We will miss him greatly! His ever joyful spirit, laughter, and strong trust in Jesus is a great blessing. Please wish him well when you see him this weekend! We love you Father Galarza! God Bless you always!

Spanish Mass; Bishop Cozzens coming August 4th Moving forward, our combined Spanish Mass will be at Guardian Angels at Noon each Sunday. Fr. Joseph Williams, who is the Vicar for Spanish ministry will be offering the Mass on some of the Sundays this summer as well as Fr. Sam Perez whom many of you know from the New Ulm Diocese. On Sunday, August 4, Auxiliary Bishop Andrew Cozzens will be joining us to offer the Mass. The longer plan for the priest for our Spanish ministry is still being discerned by the Archdiocese. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to guide this discernment!

Corpus Christi Procession was Wonderful! Last Sunday about 150 joined our Eucharistic procession from St. Nicholas to Guardian Angels. The rain held off (thank you Lord!), and the faithful of all ages joined in the prayerful walk that took about an hour and fifteen minutes total. Singing, praying, and at times silently processing, it was a powerful experience for all. Thank you to all who helped organize this devotion to our Lord. I’ve already heard many people say we should do it again next year! Stay tuned! Happy Fourth of July!
