Join our new Front Desk Ministry

HNOJ needs you! Is one of your gifts the gift of hospitality? Could you help live out your discipleship call in ministering at the parish front desk? We are forming a Front Desk Ministry during business hours.  Duties would include answering the phone, routing calls, and greeting people. Volunteers will commit to a consistent schedule every week. (generally four hour shifts)

If you are interested in learning more about how you can become involved in this ministry, email Jill Olson or call 763-745-3480.

What’s one ministry that takes just a few minutes each week, but is an important part of our worship experience? Our projector and soundboard ministry, where volunteers operate the projector to display messages, parishioner responses, videos and song lyrics during Mass. It’s easy to learn, and volunteers can choose any Mass time that is convenient for them to attend.

Want to get involved? Contact Caroline Fazzio.


Become a catechist for our Faith Formation Ministry. Dedication is required, but lots of knowledge about the faith is not! We provide the plans and all the materials needed to run the week’s lesson. All we need is for you to come and provide the love and attention these children and youth need to grow in their faith. You’ll be surprised to see how much your own faith grows as the year goes by!

We are seeking catechists in the following programs:

  • Sunday School (preschool through kindergarten) at the 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Mass times
  • Sunday Faith Formation (first through sixth grade) from 9:15-10:15 a.m. on Sundays
