Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I have some difficult news to share.  Archbishop Hebda has asked me to take a new assignment as pastor of Guardian Angels in Chaska beginning July 1st.  I have agreed to do so knowing that it is, indeed, the will of God.  I wish there was an easy way to part company and say goodbye, but there never really is, especially when it has been such a joy to serve you.  Believe me, the tears have flowed as I have become aware that this would be the course that God would be leading me to take and so soon.  Yet that joy does enable me to say a great thanks to all of you who have come to church and have worked with me to make Saint Henry’s a great place to go to church, serve our neighbor and learn our faith together.  I have had the time of my life here!
Our time together will be short now and with the restrictions due to the virus, we will have to be quite creative in acknowledging together in some social way, the great things that God has done during the nine years that I have been here.  Thank you Lord!  But we will find ways to do that, even with the restrictions.  I am confident of that.  Perhaps God is calling us to a more spiritual communion now and to a greater “yes” to God as we part, and as you welcome the new pastor, and as I go to serve the people in Chaska.
You will always be in my heart and I love you all.  I really mean that.
Father Tony VanderLoop
Gratefully, your pastor


Dear Friends,
The new pastor of The Church of Saint Henry, effective July 1st, will be Father Patrick Barnes who will be coming from Saint Nicholas in New Market.  More about Father Barnes will be forthcoming in the days to come.  May God bless him and keep him as your future new pastor!
Father Tony

Pray for COVID-19 Anointing Corps, Patients, Families and Medical Support Teams 

Parishioners across the Archdiocese are invited to prayerfully support those who are suffering most intensely, usually in sterile isolation, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Text archspm-anointing to 55321 or visit eva.us/archspm-anointing to receive a text each time a COVID-19 Anointing Corps Priest is dispatched to give the Last Rites. Upon receipt of the text, those in this ministry commit to take a moment to pray: 

  • One Our Father for the patient who is in danger of death, as they prepare to meet our Heavenly Father face-to-face; 
  • One Hail Mary for the patient’s family and friends, asking the Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Sorrows, to intercede to comfort them; and 
  • One Glory Be in thanksgiving for the priest and for his protection, as well as the medical team attending to the patient. 

For more ways to pray for those affected by COVID-19, visit archspm.org/covid19prayers
