Matthew and his wife are expecting their first child in July so please join me in blessing them and keeping them in our prayers."|

|Final Meeting for Mission Trip|
|Tuesday, May 21st is the final meeting for those going on the Mission Trip this summer. Michelle Hess (Coordinator at SEAS) is requesting that EVERYONE come to the meeting if possible. That means all campers and hopefully one parent representative for each camper. The meeting will be held at SEAS from 5:30-7:00 PM.
There will be a notary public available to notorize medical forms at 6:15 PM. Medical forms need to be signed by both adults and teens in the presence of a notary and a photo ID must be shown.
If you have questions, please contact Michelle Hess at 651-437-4254 ext 237. Because Matthew Davis has moved on to a new job, Michelle will be handling all the details of the Mission Trip

|We are asking our parish family to consider making their gift purchases through the Gift Shop here at St. Pius V. Proceeds from items purchased from the Gift Shop from April 1st, 2013 through the end of the year will go towards the Living Water Project. This project will help to build five earthen reservoirs and dams which hold the scarce rain that falls in the drought stricken area of Kitui, Kenya. If you have questions about an item or don't see what you would like to purchase, please give Joyce Lorentz a call at 507-263-2452. If you need to order an item, please place your order at least two weeks in advance. Living Water Project calendars are available at church entrances.
The Gift Shop is located in the Sacristy. Enter through the south door of the church, walk past the Parish Office door to the open door on your left or if you are coming from the lower level, walk up the stairs and through the open door at the top.
|A reminder to tie a ribbon on the Tree of Faith when you have completed an activity in either Prayer and Meditation, Works of Mercy or Liturgy.|
