From the Pastor's Desk
A few reminders of up coming events. We are hosting our first ever St. Joe’s religious art show, the forms for entry are in the back of Church. The goal of this event is to encourage artists young and old to use their talents to glorify God and edify others. Art is one of the three transcendentals that lead us to contemplate God. To enter you need to submit your forms by Dec 1st.
Next Sunday evening we have our next Theology on Tap. The doors open at 6:30, and the talk begins at 7 PM. The speaker this time around is Fr. Michael Garry a good friend of mine. The topic is understanding the spiritual life.
It’s a ways off, but I wanted to let you know we are planning our parish mission to coincide with the beginning of Lent. The dates are: Feb. 23rd-26th. This year we will have Fr. Bonaventure who is from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. We will probably be doing something similar to last year where we have day sessions at Our Lady of Fatima and evenings at St. Joseph.
Our Lady of Fatima: The window project is finished and we are closing the back section of the Church for the season. Consider coming to a celebration of 25 years of ordination for Deacon Roger Marks and Delores. I am grateful for their service to our community.
St. Joe’s: Thanks to all the people who came together to make all the pasties. It is great to see so many people coming together to do all the work. I also want to thank all who are involved in putting on the Wednesday evenings for Family Faith Formation. There has been a lot of good volunteer efforts made in both these areas. Thank You!
Holy Family: Just a quick update on Holy Family. We have finished putting in a tank for the Church that is compliant by the county, which will allow us to continue using the Church. The sale of the property is still pending, we have to extend the closing date to December 20th. Please continue praying that all this will come together.
May God Bless you and keep you, In Christ,
Parish Lenten Mission 2020
Mark your calendars for the upcoming parish mission. February 23rd-26th (Sun-Wed). That Wednesday is Ash Wednesday so it's a great time to gather and open our hearts to taking a step of faith and asking the Lord to help us continue to grow.
The Diocese of Duluth has finalized an agreement with the representatives of the victims of clergy abuse. This agreement effectively concludes the bankruptcy process, both compensating the victims and allowing the diocese to continue its primary mission which is to proclaim Christ. Below find a letter from the Bishop and a fact sheet about the bankruptcy process and outcome.
