- Can you help out? - We are looking for adult individuals to commit to one week a month to mowing the St. Nicholas campus lawn. We have a riding lawn mower and a self-propelled push mower on site to use. Please call the Parish Office at (952) 448-2345 or (952) 227-4000 to volunteer or for questions. To single-handily mow the entire campus with a push mower it takes 3 hours. Grab a helper and the job is half the work and twice the fun!

A very happy and blessed Easter to all! We celebrate today the greatest day in human history. The greatest event in human history -Jesus
Christ risen from the dead! In Christ the deepest hope of every person on earth is fulfilled. Deep down, everyone longs for eternal life
(even those who don’t believe, or won’t admit it) In Jesus Christ that gift is found! It’s important to consider that in Jesus raised from the dead, it is not merely a resuscitation of life, as though Jesus has been brought back from the dead in order to live forever on earth. His body is now Glorified and his new life goes far beyond the earthly realms of existence. It
is something that we really cannot quite imagine. Yet it is similar enough to our earthly existence that the disciples were able to recognize the Risen Lord, and converse with him, and even share some fish with
him even though they often times had difficulty recognizing him at first, or were just too amazed to believe it was really him.
Our goal on earth is to draw near to the Risen Christ on a daily basis so that he is not a stranger to us when we die our earthly death one day. We desire that his very life be infused within ours here on earth. We do
this through prayer, the Sacraments, the Scriptures, and acts of charity and justice for others. The Lord wants us to experience the power of his Risen Life now, and not be simply passively waiting until death.
Rather we each day should be actively seeking the Lord, seeking to obey him and follow him, confident that whatever sufferings or challenges we must endure in this life, will certainly be no match for the Glory that is to be revealed to us in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:18).
