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?
3rd Talk Tues Night at SJ: How to Deepen my Faith
4th Talk Wed Night at SJ: How to Make Evangelization Practical

A note on registration. Neither cluster is merged yet, thus you may still keep your current registration. However, if you are registered at St. Joseph Deerwood (SJDW), you will be getting a letter inviting you to altar your registration. This is a way for us to assist in the process of transferring people to the parish that they plan to attend after the merger. Some people may want to register at Our Lady of Fatima in Garrison (OLF), others may choose to register at St. Joseph Crosby (SJC). Still others may have a different parish outside the cluster they are already attending, or plan to attend. Everyone is free to decide where they wish to go. The letter invites those who receive it to send in their choice to the parish office or drop it in the collection basket. We are asking people to make their choice by the end of June. After that, we will make some assumptions. The two St. Joseph parishes will be merging in the near future. The Diocese has given us the go ahead for this process. OLF and Holy Family will not be merging quite yet, but some people have asked about transferring so I do want to make that available if people desire to switch.
We may be sending out a letter to the Holy Family parishioners in the near future, but for now, if you are from Holy Family and you want to transfer your membership to Our Lady of Fatima we will provide registration forms that can be picked up at Our Lady of Fatima.
The Finance Council of Our Lady of Fatima has decided that on the first Sunday of the Month we will be applying all undesignated donations (cash or check which is placed in the collection) towards our United Catholic Appeal assessment. I will make an announcement each first Sunday of the month reminding people of this fact. We have struggled to make our UCA goal we thought we would try this to see if it helps. If and when we meet our goal, we would stop until the following year.
If you would like a pew from St. Joseph in Deerwood, please let us know by June 8th. After that we will be moving things around.
Congratulations to our High School senior class! This is an important step in your life. We look forward to seeing you take the next step towards your goals.
One final note, this year for Pentecost, we will be doing the longer vigil on Saturday (June 8th) with extra readings. It isn’t quite like the Easter Vigil, but it will be longer, so if you are hoping for a quick Mass, you might choose one of the other Masses that weekend (June 8-9).
May you continue to receive the blessings of this Easter Season,

Sometimes the coming together of seemingly unrelated events sparks a new insight. In the days after the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris burned, I was preparing for a radio interview about something else, a sacred music workshop in Hibbing I’m helping with in early May.

I have never been very adventurous, so I haven’t sought out trips to exotic places. I had found my family life and what all that has encompassed exciting enough.

Not quite two years ago, the Holy Land Review published a series of articles on the restoration of the Edicule, or shrine, that encloses the tomb of Jesus within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Since the fourth century, a succession of churches have surrounded this sacred place.
