Saint Olaf is closely monitoring the Covid-19/Corona Virus pandemic and is following Archdiocesan and State of Minnesota recommendations.
On Wednesday, May 13, Governor Walz lifted the STAY at HOME Mandate and replaced it with the "STAY SAFE MN" directive. This directive was later modified to allow 25% or 250 people to gather for Church services, whichever is the lower number. Saint Olaf will follow State and City guidelines
