Parish Mission Talks

These are the recordings of the Talks that were given at St. Joseph in Crosby and Our Lady of Fatima in Garrison.  Unfortunately several times when there was a break for discussion the recording was not continued after the discussion.  Therefore to get all the content you would need to fill in with the day time sessions in Garrison.  The idea was to record the 4 nights at St. Joe's.  So you may use these as you find them helpful.


1st Talk Sun Night at SJ: What's it All About   
2nd Half of first Night at SJ: What is the Good News
2nd Talk Mon Night at SJ:Why does it Matter?

From the Pastor's Desk

Fr. Eli

Dear Parishioners,

As we enter into Holy Week, and especially as we approach the Sacred Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil) I want to encourage you to attend these special celebrations.  These days are not days of obligation, (as I have said before).  However, the intention of the Church was not to say that they were not important.  Rather, the Church presumed that all Catholics would be present at these Liturgies.  In these days we will commemorate the most Holy events which are central to our faith.  Therefore, I ask you to make every effort to attend the Triduum services here or at another Church if its more convenient.  It’s worth sacrificing other events in order to be present for these days.  How often do we plan vacations, sporting events, continuing education or other events and change our schedules to make them possible?  These Holy Days are the most important celebrations we have as Christians, so take some time to be with the Lord and with the community of faith during these days.  The celebration of the Triduum is really one liturgy broken up over the course of three days.  That doesn’t mean you can’t come to the other days if you miss one, but it does mean you will get the most out of it if you make the full journey.  Its like watching 2 of the Star Wars (original) movies or 2 of the 3 Lord of the Rings movies.  They are best when viewed together, but individually they are each important.

Feel free to bring friends, or family, even if they aren’t Catholic, you don’t have to explain everything, just letting them experience these liturgies is a powerful witness.  It’s a time to spend in extra prayer and be especially focused on what we are commemorating this week.

Also, I just want to make pitch for the Easter Vigil in a special way (its long, yes… very long), but it’s a great reminder of what our lives are about.  We will again be Feasting afterwards with our Resurrection party, so I hope those that do come will come enjoy the food and festivities afterwards.

Incase you need the schedule for different events, you can find it all on our homepage:

May the Lord grant you many graces during this sacred time,

In Christ,

-Fr. Eli

Meeting with the Bishop to be held at Holy Family

On Sunday April 28th Bishop Sirba will be be visiting with the community of Holy Family in Hillman.  This will be an opportunity to share about how people are feeling and hear from the Bishop about his plans.  Originally a Mass had been planned but it has been determined that it isn't the right time for that kind of event.

All Holy Family parishioners should be receiving an invitation in the mail, to come to this event.

Diocese News from the Northern Cross

Faith in the Public Arena: When it comes to politics, everything is connected

Today, people working to advance Catholic social teaching often find themselves in opposing camps, divided along party lines. But the church’s political work is about putting back together what has been torn apart by a highly partisan culture. In his encyclical Laudato si,’ Pope Francis proposes integral ecology as a new framework for reunifying the church’s mission of public engagement.

Father Nick Nelson: The church has definite ideals about music at Mass

I have been writing this column for less than a year, but you can probably tell that I have a passion for the liturgy. But this makes sense. As you “play how you practice,” you become how you worship.

Deacon Kyle Eller: When the accusation of hate is a weapon of hate

“Get used to replying to those poor ‘haters,’ when they pelt you with stones, by pelting them with Hail Marys.”

This quote from St. Josemaria Escriva seems useful these days when it is so easy to lose one’s peace.
