Engel Haus Ministry
St. Albert has a commitment to the care of the Catholic faithful living at Engel Haus in Albertville. Beginning Fall of 2014 weekly communion service has been provided on Saturdays by St. Albert parishioners who are commissioned Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion with a Reader helping as well. Currently a priest says Mass at Engel Haus on the 2nd Friday of each month for the faithful, therefore the following Saturday (2nd Saturday of the month) there is not a Communion Service.

If you would like to become part of this ministry please contact the parish office at 763-497-2474.

The Rite of a Communion Service in the absence of a priest is a Rite to be used chiefly when Mass is not celebrated or when communion is not distributed at scheduled times. The purpose is that the people should be nourished by the Word of God. By hearing it they learn that the marvels it proclaims reach their climax in the paschal mystery of which the Mass is a sacramental memorial and in which they share by communion. Nourished by God’s word, they are led on to grateful and fruitful participation in the saving mysteries.
