I'm New - Pandemic

Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with a parishioner or priest during your visit.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

During this time we ask that everyone wear a mask to help protect each other.

We want you to feel comfortable. We are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! However, we do request that in general, clothing be respectable and conservative.


HOW DO I GET TO THE PARISH?

Our Parish is located at 7025 Halifax Ave N, Brooklyn Center, MN 55429. There are multiple parking lots available. Here is a map. 


WHERE DO MY CHILDREN GO?

We believe it is important for children of all ages to attend Mass with their families. During this time the cry room is currently closed. 


HOW DO I KNOW WHEN TO SIT, STAND, AND KNEEL?

There’s no need to be self-conscious about the postures and responses used during worship. Most visitors just follow the lead of the our parishioners. We do have worship aids, be sure to grab a bulletin on your way into church.  


AM I EXPECTED TO PUT MONEY IN THE OFFERING?

If you are visiting us, we don't expect you to put money in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by. If you consider our parish your church home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving on a weekly basis. You can give by check or cash at the boxes located near the entrances or you can sign up for online giving here
