Did you know that 89% of the people in a typical American parish don’t have a financial safety net?

Shocked? We were too. But there’s hope! And that hope is Financial Peace University. Financial Peace University is a nine-lesson course taught by Dave Ramsey and his team of financial experts. With Financial Peace University, our members will learn step-by-step how to handle money using biblical wisdom and common sense. See more...

Blood Drive!
Tuesday, July 31, 2:00 - 7:00 PM, Cassidy Hall

Our Lady of Grace is hosting another Red Cross Blood Drive.  There is an urgent need for blood, and you can sign up online by going to www.redcrossblood.org and entering OURLADYOFGRACE (one word) or contact Melissa Miller to schedule your appointment. Each pint of blood can save up to three lives and donating takes under an hour.  This might be the most generous thing you do all year.
Join us Monday nights at 7PM! 
Who better to look to for guidance on evangelization than the Apostles and disciples of the early Church? And what better place to read their stories than in the firsthand account of the Acts of the Apostles? In the ten-part series Evangelization and the Acts of the Apostles, Dr. Mary Healy combines insightful biblical study with Church teaching and practical advice to show how modern Catholics can effectively impact their world for Jesus Christ. See more! 
Join us for our annual summer social event! All men of the parish community are invited. We will set up a tent on the Athletic Fields and, for the first time in our history, put on a pig roast. To that we'll add coleslaw, potato salad, corn, greens and a plethora of beverages. We will use this event to celebrate our extremely successful past year and welcome new parish members to the Men's Club. See more...
Join us for the weekly West Metro Young Adults Sports Night. These events are Friday nights at one of three locations: St. John's in Hopkins, St Joseph's in Hopkins, or Our Lady of Grace in Edina.

Please pay specific attention to the location for each particular sports night event.

All young adults ages 18-39 are invited to join us regardless of your faith background.

If inside, we play volleyball and basketball on a consistent basis and occasionally dodge ball. If outside, we play ultimate frisbee and soccer on a consistent basis and occasionally kickball. All are great fun - come out and play!
