From the Pastor's Desk

Fr. Eli

Dear Parishioners,

We are now in ordinary time for a short time.  Ash Wednesday is February 26th.  I wanted to remind you that our parish mission is coming up during the last week in February (Sun. 23rd-Wed. 26th).  We will have a similar format to last year.  The day sessions will be held at Our Lady of Fatima and the evening sessions at St. Joseph.  This will be a good opportunity to kick-start your Lent (I know that it’s hard to think about Lent when we just finished Christmas).  Please mark your calendars.   It’s always a little hard for me when we have these bigger events and people tell me I didn’t know about it.  You have to tell me sooner.  I hope you can come.  Fr Bonaventure is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal CFR.  I think you will appreciate his talks.  He will be preaching at the Masses the prior weekend.

Thanks for your prayers while I was on retreat.  I prayed for you too.  May God grant the answers to our prayers.  

I want to share with you my great gratitude for the gift of serving in these parishes.  I am so blessed by you and your faith.  It is easy at times to focus on the negative things... or let them dominate our thoughts.  We certainly have our struggles to overcome or to bear... but by and large we are very blessed and I love serving here as your pastor.  I know I have much to learn and need to be formed by you.  Thank you for your patience with me and your support.  I thank the Lord for bringing me here... such a grace.  What does the next year or the next five years hold.  Who can say...  but I can see for now I am excited to see how God will work in our lives.  

St. Joe’s: a reminder that the Presentation and Dialogue meetings begin this coming Thursday.  Please plan to come to one of the meetings.  It will be critical for the next phase of deciding our future. 

In Christ,

-Fr. Eli

Diocese News from the Northern Cross

Bishop Paul Sirba: We don’t have to remain in the cold and darkness of a world without love

Editor’s note: Bishop Paul Sirba wrote this column for the December issue of The Northern Cross shortly before his death on Dec. 1.

With the nights getting longer and the cold growing colder, it may seem counterintuitive to be thinking of new beginnings. But the expression “it is always darkest before the dawn” really comes into play — and maybe those who live in the Southern Hemisphere have a slight advantage this time of year. Our Church begins a new year with the first Sunday of Advent, Dec. 1.

Father Richard Kunst: Heaven is a gift, but hell is earned

Not long ago, I gave my weekday Mass crowd two theological statements and asked them to raise their hands if they thought the statement was correct. Here was the first one: “We can earn heaven by living a virtuous life, being faithful to the sacraments, and truly loving our neighbor as ourself.” About half the people raised their hand and nodded in agreement.

Editorial: Goodbye, Bishop Paul

"When people met him, they felt accepted by him,” Father Joseph Sirba said in the funeral homily for his brother, our beloved Bishop Paul Sirba, who died unexpectedly Dec. 1. “To them he wasn’t just Bishop Paul, but my friend, Bishop Paul ….”

Or take it from a retired priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis: “I think the thing about Bishop Paul was, no matter who he was with, he was 100 percent himself and you felt like he was your best friend,” he told The Catholic Spirit. “He was so kind and loving and interested in your life.”
