Welcome to the Churches of St. Joseph - Our Lady of Fatima - Holy Family

Please pray for Bishop-elect Daniel Felton, our new shepherd for the Diocese of Duluth. 
His episcopal ordination and installation as bishop of Duluth is May 20.

On Friday, April 9, 2021, Deacon Dan and Father Anthony hosted the Real Presence Live radio show. During that program they interviewed Bishop-elect Daniel Felton. Click to hear the show.


Fr. Anthony

We have a new Shepherd! Daniel Felton, our Bishop-elect of Duluth, hails from the diocese of Green Bay. He is 66, with a young demeanor. I have heard wonderful things from a few brother priests who have met him. Let us pray for our new spiritual father of the diocese. He has a task to preach the Gospel in this entire area of northeastern Minnesota—no small matter. My life as a priest will be tied to him as a spiritual son. I am a co-worker in the vineyard with him going forward!

Our Holy Week liturgies were beautiful this year. I want to give a heartfelt thanks to our music director, Kristen Fleming, and our scholas and cantors. A very full heart of gratitude from me gives thanks to our deacon Dan and servers, lectors, ushers, and all the decorating crews. Thanks to everyone who contributed to honoring our Lord’s passion, death, and resurrection this year. It was beautiful!

Today we celebrate another joyful reality—Divine Mercy Sunday. At St. Joseph’s in Crosby we will have a holy hour from 3:00- 4:00 PM with the Divine Mercy image out for veneration. I will offer confessions during the holy hour as well as ending the period of adoration with Benediction. Under the usual conditions, a plenary indulgence is granted to those who take part in the prayers and devotions held in honor of Divine Mercy, or who, in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament exposed or in the tabernacle, recite the Our Father & Apostles Creed, adding a devout prayer to the Merciful Lord Jesus (e.g. “Jesus, I trust in you!”). Have a blessed Divine Mercy Sunday and Easter season!

In Christ,
Fr. Anthony

Fr. Anthony recently blessed the Shrine to the Relic of the True Cross of Jesus at St. Joseph in Chisholm. See the photo gallery.

Father Mike Schmitz: Does God just coerce people into following him?

I have recently been reading the Old Testament and have encountered some things that have troubled me. Among them is the way God talks about blessing those who obey him and cursing those who disobey him. I much prefer the New Testament and how Jesus reveals that God is love and calls us to love him. This just seems like God is coercing people into following him. What do I do? 

The fact that you are wrestling with this demonstrates that you have an issue and are willing to engage with it rather than just ignore it. These are the kinds of questions that can lead to a deepening and maturing of faith, so I am very glad that you asked about this.

Bible podcast by Father Schmitz tops Apple Podcast list

Father Mike Schmitz says that if you had asked him to come up with an idea for a podcast that rise to the top of Apple’s Podcast charts, “The Bible in a Year” wouldn’t have been it.

After all, he says, the podcast, put out by the Catholic publisher Ascension Press, is pretty simple: a few words of introduction, three readings from the Bible, and a few words of explanation, around 20 minutes all told.
