It’s The Great Catholic Get-Together of 2011 – and you’re invited!

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of your Catholic newspaper, get a peek at what’s on the horizon for The Catholic Spirit, and give yourself a fresh start in a new year and a new day in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

Catholics from parishes around the archdiocese are invited to help The Catholic Spirit mark its historic centennial. It was on Jan. 7, 1911, that the first issues of the Catholic Bulletin – predecessor to The Catholic Spirit – rolled off the press.

Come have some fun looking back at the news, reminiscing and testing how much you remember of Catholic history these last 100 years.

See how the Catholic Spirit staff is preparing to share the Good News in new ways during the coming century.

And mingle with people from across the archdiocese during an evening of fun, good food and good conversation.

The Great Catholic Get-Together of 2010 will be held the evening of Thursday, Jan. 6, at the Nicollet Island Pavilion in Minneapolis.

Cardinal John Foley, the former head of communications for the Vatican whose voice you’ll remember from midnight Mass broadcasts on Christmas, is the featured speaker. A one-time editor of a diocesan newspaper himself, he’s a storyteller par excellence who you won’t want to miss.

A “Mix ‘n’ Mingle” food menu and cash bar. Seating is limited, so reserve your place soon.

Make reservations online at, or telephone Mary Gibbs at 651-251-7709.
