Cub Foods Cards Say “Welcome Home”
Few things say “welcome home” like food. Here at the Minnesota Council of Churches, our supply of Cub Foods gift cards is running dangerously low, and we are in need of donations of grocery gift cards to share with the new families that are arriving in the coming weeks. We are granted a modest budget for each new arrival to help with their initial housing, food, and essentials, and donated grocery cards made a big difference in helping stretch that budget. We prefer gift cards in $25 and $50 increments, please. You can order them online (choose the personal use option) and have them sent to our office or pick them up in store. Thank you!

Personal Pilgrimages
Mondays – Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Wednesdays, 5 to 7 p.m.
St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral
519 Oak Grove St., Mpls.
For the pilgrim, the journey is as important as the destination. Pilgrims often travel together, in groups. Every step is taken in community and sustained by camaraderie. In these last perilous months our journeys have been difficult. But our fellow pilgrims within and outside of St. Mark’s have borne us up when we faltered. You are invited to come to the Cathedral for a pause in your pilgrimage to intercede, give thanks, praise, or sit in the quiet and listen for the “still small voice.” Take the opportunity to look around and recall the friends who sit near you and pray for their pilgrimages along with your own.
