The Culture Project is a new ministry in our country that is working to help youth understand the gift of their bodies and their sexuality.  We have one of our own parishioners Caitlin Bostrom who is working in this ministry.
Click Here for a short video of why she chose to do this work.

Thanks to Caitlin and all her teammates for doing this work of evangelizing and sharing the faith.

 Here are some of Caitlin's own words:

My heart burns with love for them as I share that chastity is a calling for EVERYONE, despite their past. There is nothing quite as rewarding as spreading Christ's infinite mercy. Some of these girls were aching so much for the message of chastity that after the school bell rang, they wanted more and followed me up to the campus ministry room to continue asking their questions. Deep down they desire authentic love! It's a beautiful way of becoming a spiritual big sister. 
I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the state of our culture...feeling like there is so much work to be done...way more than little Caitlin Bostrom can handle! But God gently reminds me that this has nothing to do with me, and I can never underestimate the power God can do in people's lives. God loves to use little instruments who trust.
One of my favorite parts of presenting to the youth is to sharing a little bit about my own dating relationship. It's precious to see the encouragement and excitement they get from hearing about authentic love and a relationship centered on God and pursuing chastity.

From the Pastor's Desk

Fr. Eli

Dear Parishioners,

I want to express my thanks to all of our volunteers who are helping in so many different ways in the parishes.  It takes so many people to do the work of running the parishes, and I dare much of it is volunteers who go unnoticed and unthanked much of the time.  There are so many different aspects in which volunteers are working, our finance council members, all the different liturgical volunteers ushers, musicians, Eucharistic ministers, lectors altar servers and sacristans.  Our Councils of Catholic Women, our Knights of Columbus, the sewing and quilting ladies, all who help with our Family Faith Formation, the St. Vincent De Paul.  For all who are doing those little hidden works of kindness behind the scenes.  In a special way I would like to thank my staff who really are dedicated to the work that happens in our parishes.  I know I don’t say it enough, so I offer my thanks.  As the pastor people see me often and they thank me often because like it or not I am often the visible face of the parish, but I am not alone and for that I am so grateful.

As we celebrate this weekend the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception I thank Our Lord and Our Lady for the gift of serving in these parishes.  There have been and continue to be challenges and details to be worked out, but what a blessing it has been to be working alongside you all.  I am very much aware that I have asked you to adapt and change in many ways in the short while that I am here, but I really do feel that the Lord is guiding this whole process of our four parishes coming together.  I am anxious to understand his purposes and what the future holds, however, I know that in everything God is at work for his purposes.  Let’s continue asking our Lord to guide us that we may be attentive to the Holy Spirit in carrying out his work.

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, Pray For Us,

-Fr. Eli

Faith in the Public Arena: (Civic) friendship is an apostolate

When you read this, the 2018 elections will have passed. The anger will continue to boil, and new opportunities for outrage will undoubtedly abound. The demonization of political opponents will persist, and the saddling of the American presidency with criminal investigations and threats of impeachment will likely become a permanent feature of our politics.

Bishop Paul Sirba: Accountability helped by the assistance of the whole People of God

“If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy” (1 Corinthians 12:26).

St. Paul established a Christian community in Corinth about the year 51. The city, a major seaport and commercial crossroads, struggled with issues of moral depravity, factionalism, questions of leadership, and other cultural woes that spilled into its celebration of the liturgy. St. Paul courageously responded to issues of conscience in the light of faith in Jesus Christ — there really is nothing new under the sun.

McIver offers hopeful vision in the midst of ‘ruins’

“Love persists in the midst of ruins.”

That might be the most apt takeaway from Colin McIver’s presentations at the Diocese of Duluth’s 13th annual Diocesan Assembly, held Oct. 13 at Marshall School in Duluth. It was attended by about 170 people.
