Welcome, Deacon Hjalmar

Please join us in welcoming Deacon Hjalmar B. Gudjonsson to our Richfield parishes. You should begin seeing him around our three parishes soon, if you haven’t already. 
Here’s a message from Deacon Hjalmar: 

I am very pleased that I will be staying for my summer deacon placement in the parishes of St. Richard, St. Peter and Assumption. 
On May 14 I was ordained a transitional deacon for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. As a part of my path toward the priesthood, I will serve and preach the Gospel this summer and help with various assignments in the parishes. 
I arrived to the U.S. in January 2021 and have been living and helping with the mission at All Saints in Lakeville most of that time. For a year, I also lived at the Seminary of St. Paul in St. Paul. Previously, I lived in Austria and in Italy where I graduated with a Pontifical degree in theology from The University of St. Thomas, Angelicum. 
I was born in Reykjavik, Iceland where i studied and later practiced law. I speak a few languages and most recently I have been studying Spanish. I am looking forward to being able to practise my Spanish and getting to know all of you. I will be living at the rectory at St. Peter.
Deacon Hjalmar B. Gudjonsson

Faith Formation & Sacraments

Taizé Evening Prayer

Please join us for Taizé Prayer, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug.  at St. Richard. 

Named after the monastery in France where much of the music was composed, Taize prayer is an ecumenical hour of beautiful music, candlelight, and prayerful silence. Music is led by a chamber choir, soloists, piano, guitar, and an instrumental ensemble.

There will be no Taizé Prayer on July 7 due to the July 4 holiday, so the next Taizé Evening Prayer session will be Friday, Aug. 4, at St. Richard.
