There will soon be a Catholic church in Kuopio: on November 27th 2013 the local Evangelical-Lutheran parishes sold the "Old Church" in Männistö to the Catholic Church. The Church is in the district of St. Olav's Parish and for the time being will probably be a Chapel within that Parish. The Church will be dedicated to St. Joseph.
The address of the new Catholic Church in Kuopio is Lönnrotinkatu 24. The date when the Church will be consecrated as a Catholic church has not yet been decided.
Of course there are lots of other goodies on offer: food from Vietnam, Poland and Iraq. Ginger snaps by the Knights of Malta have been mentioned, and that's just the beginning. The place to start your preparations for Christmas is the St Bridget Bazaar at Ursininkatu 15 in Turku.
