Welcome to The Church of the Presentation
of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Set as a beacon on a hill to surrounding Maplewood and the east side of St. Paul, the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a center of Catholic faith and life since 1946. Our parish continues to be a vibrant place of worship, education, and outreach to the community. We welcome you to join us as we celebrate God’s many gifts and strive to bring the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the world around us.

Josh - colorWelcome, Josh Diaz, Director of Liturgy and Music!

Joshua Diaz is an up-and-coming opera singer from Texas praised for his lyrical, Italianate voice and sensitive musicality.

Josh’s liturgical experience stems from his youth; his father has been the Director of Music at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in his hometown of San Angelo, Texas. Josh attended the University of Notre Dame for his Bachelor’s in Music, and then continued on for his Master’s and a Performance Diploma at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. There, Josh was the Director of Music for the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, America’s first cathedral.

He moved to the Twin Cities two years ago to continue his studies in the Doctoral Program at the University of Minnesota in Voice. Since moving here, he has helped build music programs at All Saints Catholic Church in Lakeville and Guardian Angels Catholic Church in Chaska. And while Josh eventually hopes to find himself on the greatest operatic stages of the world, he is happy to bring his talents and passion for music and liturgy to the congregation here at Presentation.
