From the Pastor's Desk
I would ask you to pray for Pope Francis and the Bishops who will meet with him to discuss the abuse crisis. They will be meeting in Rome during the days of February 21st-24th. The presidents of the national bishop’s conferences will be meeting with Pope Francis. From our country Cardinal Daniel DiNardo who is the Archbishop of Galveston-Huston and Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles will be traveling to Rome for this meeting.
Our annual Men’s and Women’s conferences will be held in Duluth at Marshal School. The men’s conference is Sat. March 9th and the women’s conference is Sat. March 23rd. If you would like to register for the conference you can call the Diocese of Duluth at 218-724-9111 or go online: http://www.dioceseduluth.org/
You may have noticed we have new song boards. Just incase you didn’t hear yet, the plan is to put the number where the Mass parts can be found (in St. Michael hymnal) as well as the page where the readings can be found (Word and Eucharist Mass books) on the left side. The hymn numbers (St. Michael Hymnal) will be on the right side. We have had some problems with the electronic board and some musicians had asked for the physical boards. The electronic board may still be used if the musicians prefer. We are working out what seems best.
Our Lady of Fatima:
Our music department has taken a hit lately. Bev Myers the organist from Holy Family broke her wrist and hip after Christmas and has been recovering, Jeanne Mattson who has been singing will be moving in March. Deb is still able to play, but we could use some cantors. If you are interested in this ministry, or even if you have piano or organ skills please come and talk to me. We can always resort to acapella (a capella), but if we have musical talents that are thus far untapped now would be a time to bring them forward.

Some have suggested that my husband and I have sheltered our children.
I cannot deny the fact that we intentionally made decisions to shield our kids from potentially harmful situations or incidents that would negatively impact the foundation we were trying to provide them. I am not just talking physical circumstances but emotional, intellectual, and spiritual, as well. We worked hard not to expose them too early to specific experiences where the visual scenes would forever plague their memory. Often — I mean very often — my children did not participate in activities that were commonplace for other children.Read More
Father Richard Kunst: Inviting ‘Christmas and Easter Catholics’ back to Mass should be our main goal

I like to bring humor into classes I teach and homilies that I preach, because I think humor is a good way to get through to people about the importance of faith.
As I look back on my ministry I remember many times when certain points of humor were particularly well received; one was several years ago, right before Mass started at my parish of St. Joseph’s in Gnesen (the prettiest parish in the Diocese of Duluth, if you ask me). St. Joseph’s is a small, rural parish, so there tend to be other critters in the area besides humans. It was during Advent when someone inadvertently allowed two dogs to sneak in the door. They were good-sized dogs, and they ran up and down the aisle of the small church, which caused a bit of a stir with the parishioners. After the dogs were finally corralled and let out, I told the congregation that I can tell Christmas is getting near, because I hadn’t seen those two dogs since Easter.Read More
