Saint Andrew Catholic Church and School

The Class of St. Anthony of Padua will meet on Tuesday evenings at The Church of St. Andrew in Elk River beginning in September. Taught by some of the best instructors in the Twin Cities, including Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Jeff Cavins, Deacon Joe Michalak, Deacon Dan Gannon, Fr. John Klockeman, Dr. Todd Flanders, Christina Smith, Liz Kelly, and more, the program follows the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and will make sense of all-things Catholic, deepen your faith, and lay out the road map to heaven.
