Tony Melendez in Concert!

Saturday, December 1, 2018

What a night this will be! Join us for a great celebration of Mass with Fr. Paul Shovelain, Parochial Vicar of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in New Brighton, MN and then following Mass…Tony Melendez in Concert!

Tony Melendez may have been born without arms but that has not stopped him from singing, playing the guitar, and sharing the faith with Catholic young people. He was born without arms as a result of his mother taking the prescription drug thalidomide. Growing up, Tony began playing and singing in the Los Angeles area. His life was changed forever when he performed for Pope John Paul II (now, a Saint) at World Youth Day before a live audience of thousands and a TV audience of millions. It was there at WYD that John Paul II told him, “My wish for you is to continue giving this hope to all the people.” Since then Tony has traveled throughout the United States and 40 foreign countries, 200 dioceses, World Youth Days, the Vatican, NCYC (National Catholic Youth Conference), “March For Life” Rallies, and made countless TV appearance on all major networks.

Men’s and Women’s Evening Sessions

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Self Mastery and Social Media (Women’s Breakout Session with Kalley Yanta)
What role does social media play in your life? How much time do you spend each day on Snapchat and Instagram? Have you ever felt insecure after looking at friends’ social media posts? Have you seen images online that you can’t seem to erase from your memory but would like to?

Former television news anchor/reporter Kalley Yanta (KSTP-TV, Channel 5) will address the challenges young people face today with the frequent use of social media.

You will discover the powerful effect that social media use is having on interpersonal communication, incidences of depression and anxiety, insomnia, and self esteem. This presentation will help you identify whether you are in control of your social media use or if it has gotten out of control. Kalley will also offer guidance on how to achieve balance and why staying rooted in the Catholic faith is critical in today’s hi-tech culture.

No Guts, No Glory (Men’s Breakout Session with Pat Millea)
Blessed is the man who perseveres in temptation, for when he has been approved he will receive the crown of life that he promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)

You, a man of God, are called to greatness! And we know through our own human experience that true greatness only comes through courageous perseverance in the face of trials. So embrace the struggle, push through with the strength of the Holy Spirit, and receive the crown of life!

Pat Millea is a dynamic Catholic youth minister, speaker, and musician who brings his faith, energy, and passion to Catholic young people here locally and across the U.S., including the National Catholic Youth Conference! Pat serves as Director of Senior High Faith Formation at the Church of St. Michael in Prior Lake, MN. Find info on how to bring Pat to your community at

The Call of a Lifetime

Saturday, February 2, 2019

The time is now as the modern world awaits the emergence of a handful of spiritual heroes and heroines who will serve the Church as priests, religious sisters, and religious brothers. These young men and women are specially called to be witnesses of hope to a world in desperate need of the Good News!

The question is not will God raise up great women and men for this mission. The question is who will God raise up? And the answer is: those you least expect.

Archbishop Bernard Hebda of Saint Paul & Minneapolis will be with us for this great event. Fr. David Blume, Vocations Director, will be joined by a dynamic team of Religious Sisters and Brothers for this blessed evening.

Love is Bigger

Saturday, March 2, 2019

Is the Catholic Church really small-minded about gender and sexuality? Do we really know the whole story? In a world of stereotypes and labels, God invites us to a bigger sense of who we really are. Jesus invites us to a love that is bigger and more beautiful than we can possibly imagine.

Anna Carter, founder of Eden Invitation, will share her testimony of chaste, abundant life with same sex desires in the Catholic Church.

Come with an open mind and an open heart to discover the power of Christian teaching on identity. Walk away with a fuller understanding of what Jesus said in Matthew 19 (“in the beginning it was not so”) and how not only does “the beginning” illuminate the Church’s teaching on sexuality and gender, it’s also a powerful expression of God’s love for His children.

At Whose Altar Do You Worship?

Saturday, April 6, 2019

Our idols are the things we love, serve, and obey. They are what occupy our time, attention, and affection. Who or what holds your heart? St. Augustine puts it this way: “Everyone loves something…the question is ‘what to love?’” This presentation will reveal the secret “god” that we serve.

Bishop Andrew Cozzens of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is our very special guest! He is a gifted speaker who reaches the minds and hearts of young people through his great stories, relevant message and inspiring witness.

Our evening will include Eucharistic Adoration.

You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you (Acts 1:8)

Saturday, May 4, 2019

Wind. Fire. Water. These biblical symbols of the Holy Spirit communicate both gentleness and power- the gentleness of a cool breeze or a warm fire and the power of a hurricane or blazing forest fire.

But do I know the Holy Spirit as someone real in my life? Have I experienced His power or His gentleness as the Apostles did at Pentecost?

Fr. Emmanuel, CFR is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal who lives in NYC serving the poor and preaching the Gospel with passion and humor. At the age of 18 he was changed by a radical encounter with the Holy Spirit – his own personal Pentecost.

There are no tickets required. This event is free, but please prayerfully consider a $5 free-will offering at Mass to help keep Lifeline going.
