Anticipate new refugees
The Minnesota Council of Churches is looking ahead with hope and anticipation as we prepare to begin welcoming more people and families to Minnesota in the months to come in light of President Biden’s revised refugee admissions numbers. Would you consider how you might help us rebuild our programs and support? We will be in need of increased amounts of donated household items and connections to affordable housing. Our greatest need right now is for new standard size bed pillows. We are also in need of liquid hand soap pumps; deodorant – both men’s and women’s; bar soap; men’s shaving cream; men’s disposable razors; toothpaste; and electric alarm clocks. To arrange a drop-off, please email

‘Merton on My Mind’ with Sophfronia Scott
Wednesday, July 7, noon
What is the connection between contemplation and action? Is there ever such a thing as a wrong answer to a spiritual question? How do we care about the brutality in the world while not becoming overwhelmed by it? In this Collegeville Connections event, Sophfronia Scott shares her deep dive into the private journals of the famous Trappist monk Thomas Merton, and the connection she found in his pages that led to her new book “The Seeker and the Monk: Everyday Conversations with Thomas Merton.” As a Black woman who is not Catholic, Scott both learns from and pushes back against Merton, holding spirited and intimate conversations on race, ambition, faith, activism, nature, prayer, friendship, and love.
