Heart of the Northside Festival
Our Heart of the Northside Festival- Journey into the Future was an early summer success thanks to our whole parish community! It was truly a day of fun and fellowship in the heart of Minneapolis. Special thanks to everyone who so willingly volunteered your time in a multitude of jobs, donated, shopped, played, cooked, bid, and prayed for the beautiful day we enjoyed! Final numbers will be in soon, but more than the profits we made, last Sunday was a perfect example of all of us coming together to grow as a community and be a beacon for the Northside. Let’s enjoy the ride as we journey together into the future as a strong faith community! Relax, rest up and remember… we are already thinking about the Heart of the Northside for 2019! Thanks again… May the force continue to be with us!!!
May they rest in peace
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon Michele Tibou long time member of St. Austin, Andrew Weber and Deacon George Nugent. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
A Year of Transition
Our trustees (Mike Johnson and Gerri Hare), our resident priest (Fr. Paul), our parish director/pastoral care director (Joni Sandlin), our part-time pastoral care minister (Brother Bruce), and our deacon (Dcn. Rich) will be phoning our parish community’s important stakeholders – that is, all our parishioners - to tap into their wisdom during this important year of transition.
Grateful for Our New Piano
Thanks to the incredible generosity of some donors, we have been gifted a pre-owned baby grand piano in our St. Bridget campus church. We now have a piano to match the beautiful music made by our choir. Thank you, anonymous donor!

Mission Appeal June 30-July 1
Fr. Frank Ruff from the GLENMARY HOME MISSIONERS will be speaking at all our Masses about the missionary work Glenmary priests, brothers and lay missionaries are doing to serve the spiritual and material poor right here in the United States! Hundreds of U.S. counties do not have a resident priest, and in many of these counties the Catholic Church is not present. That means no celebration of the Eucharist, no sacraments, not even a parish community in which to find fellowship and support. Glenmary Home Missioners are working hard to fill the void—to bring the love of Jesus and His Church to the small towns and rural areas of our nation. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to hear of the Glenmary apostolate in Appalachia, the rural South and the Southwest, and to offer our prayers and financial support for their important ministry in the Church. Fr. Frank will be at Masses the weekend of June 30/July 1.
