The Epiphany - the three Magi traveled a great distance to find the newborn King, and pay Jesus homage. We are so fortunate to have HIM a short distance from us so as to have the opportunity to follow the example of the Magi. Let us pay homage to Jesus in the Adoration Chapel.

The Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 11:00 a.m., Thursday 5:00 p.m. Friday 9:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
