Lumen Christi Catholic Community
Build Community Through Conversation
Imagine if church was a place where you could talk about important topics and feel safe,
respected, understood. If conversation around current issues became a pathway to belonging, to
These are the goals of Living Room Conversations, a new offering beginning this spring.
Living Room Conversations use a structured format to help people with different viewpoints
and experiences build understanding. It is not a debate, and the goal is not to change one
another’s opinion. Conversation Agreements like “Listen and Be Curious” and “Show Respect
and Suspend Judgment” and small groups create the framework for diving into the questions.
Curious? Give it a try at one (or all!) of our Spring offerings. Each topic will be offered twice a
day from 8:30 to 10 a.m. OR 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Mondays in the Community Room:

Do you remember a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet who taught you when you were younger? Did you know that after the merger of St. Therese and St. Leo’s in 1971 there were six Sisters of St. Joseph who lived across the street and taught in our early classrooms? The Sisters have had a positive effect on more than just Highland Catholic, their impact reaches far and wide across the Twin Cities area.
Since the Sisters arrived in Minnesota in 1851, they have dedicated themselves to going where the need is greatest. The ministries and programs they’ve established in the Twin Cities ensure that healthcare, education, safe housing, spirituality resources, and social justice are available to all in our communities. With the founding of St. Mary’s Health Clinics individuals who cannot access government health services are ensured care through free clinics around the metro area. Sarah’s... an Oasis for Women was established to provide a supportive and safe home for women fleeing dangerous situations and persecution. The Sisters started Learning In Style School for immigrants and refugees wanting to learn English and study to become United States citizens. The Sisters of St. Joseph have long been, and continue to be, dedicated to supporting our communities and working toward positive change.
Each year the foundation that supports the Sisters’ ministries hosts a fundraising event, the Carondelet Celebration, to raise funds to continue their work. Taking place on Friday, May 5, at the Omni Viking Lakes Hotel in Eagan, this year’s theme is ‘Turning Hope into Action.’ It is guaranteed to be an evening of music, games, fun, and hope. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet hope you can join them in joyfully celebrating and supporting the amazing impact they continue to have in the Twin Cities.
