Women's Lenten Retreat 2017

Exploring the Desert Within

A Day of Transformation and Renewal

Retreat led by Heidi Busse

Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Risen Savior

Click here to download the program flyer.

The story of Jesus' time in the desert is read on the first Sunday of Lent as a reminder that we are each called to explore our own temptations and the deserts within us that allow them to flourish. The gospels tell us that it is the Spirit who leads Jesus into the desert to face his demons, and only after this is he able to begin his mission on earth.

The same is true for us. Throughout the season of Lent, the Spirit calls us to self-examination and transformation.

In this retreat, Heidi Busse will explore Christ's temptations in the desert in a modern context and how we are called to growth through prayer, fasting and giving alms. 

All women of the parish are invited to join us for a day of reflection. The participation fee is $40/person, which includes a wonderful lunch catered by Sally Johnson.

Register online now:

Contact Scott Brazil at (952) 698-1724 or e-mail Scott if you have questions regarding this retreat.

Lenten Prayer Series: The Road to the Resurrection

Lenten Prayer Series: The Road to the Resurrection

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - PLEASE PAY AT THE DOOR

Lenten Prayer Series:

The Road to the Resurrection: Exploring the Passion & Resurrection Narratives

Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

Begins March 7th - Concludes April 4th

$20/person

Click here to download a program flyer.

Our pastor, Fr. Tom Krenik, will lead a series of sessions on Tuesday evenings during Lent to help us grow in appreciation of these important parts of our Bible. The death and resurrection of Christ is at the heart of our Christian faith. We call it the Paschal Mystery. We remember and present ourselves to this saving mystery every time we celebrate the Mass and the sacraments. The death of Christ leads to his resurrection. Without his resurrection he would be a martyr but not the Risen Lord.

This series will be a study of these important sacred texts. It will also help us to see how we are drawn into this paschal mystery in our daily Christian living.

Fr. Tom will use images, symbols, and stories as well as his reflections from his own study and experience.

The cost to participate is $20.00 per person. 

All participants will receive a copy of the book,  The Passion & Resurrection Narratives of Jesusby Scripture scholar Stephen J. Binz.

Contact Scott Brazil at (952) 698-1724 or e-mail if you have questions regarding this program.

All married couples: the Cana Dinner is a great opportunity to take some time out of your busy lives to focus on each other as a couple and to celebrate your marriage!

To change things up a bit for 2018, we've invited Paul & Nancy Lee Gauche to talk about marriage; the expectations, the reality, The Dance of Marriage and Keeping In Step Through The Last Song

Paul and Nancy Lee have been married for 35 years. Both are ELCA Lutheran Pastors who have invested in pre-marriage and marriage work as a significant part of their ministry. Paul's most recent publication, which you will be able to purchase for $15 at the Cana Dinner, is The Dance of Marriage: Keeping In Step Through The Last Song. Paul is the Life Transition Pastor at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville, and Nancy Lee is pastor and teacher at Luther Seminary in St. Paul. Paul and Nancy Lee are grateful for their two grown children; their son, Soren, their daughter, Sarah and her husband Travis, and three beautiful granddaughters, Ruby Grace, Ryann Mae, and Emily Joyce. Shelbui, the wonder dog, keeps the Gauches good company!

Wine and beer will be served; the cash bar will be open throughout the evening.
