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!

May is Mary Month

May is traditionally a month that we pay particular devotion to the Blessed Mother. This year at both St. Nicholas and Guardian Angels our children in Faith Formation and at GA School have had May crownings and rosaries. Following the lead of our children and youth, let us all do something to strengthen our devotion to the Blessed Mother this month. Perhaps you can pray a rosary daily, or the Memorare, or some other Marian devotion, or prayer. Make an effort to visit the Prayer Garden at St. Nicholas and pray the large rosary in the garden grounds, and visit the beautiful Our Lady of Guadalupe grotto, or some of the devotional shrines dedicated to the Blessed Mother.
