BOOK OF THE DEAD - Parishes have the custom of giving a place of honor to a book in which members of the parish, community members and visitors write the names of their beloved dead. This practice provides the living with an opportunity for healing and consolation in the face of grief. The Book of the Dead will be displayed from the solemnity of All Saints until the beginning of Advent. It is left open for people to write the names of their deceased loved ones and for others to read the names, remember, and pray for the repose of their souls. Remembering all of these men and women who have gone before us, “marked with the sign of faith,” helps us better understand and appreciate our faith in the Christ our risen Lord who conquers sin and death and brings new life to all.
At This time The Book of the Dead will be placed in the back of the church and then will be placed at the front of the church during the month of NOVEMBER. This book is for anyone who wishes to add the names of their deceased loved ones. During the All Souls Day Mass and the Masses in November, We will pray for those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith.
COATS FOR KIDS - The “Coats for Kids” barrel is in the hallway by the school office. Coats for Kids collects new and gently used coats for local children who would otherwise go without during the winter months. Donations of new and gently used winter wear can be sent with your student to school.
We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through praise, sacraments, service, and community. If you or someone you know is interested in joining our Church, or in learning more about the Catholic Church please contact Deacon Bruce Bot at 507-828-7012

Raising our voices, simultaneously, in prayer with Catholics from coast to coast and other countries is a powerful way to help turn our country and the world back to God!

A little laughter is good for the Heart
A woman brought a very limp parrot into a veterinary surgeon. As she lay her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm so sorry, Polly has passed away." The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure? I mean, you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something." The vet rolled his eyes, shrugged, turned and left the room, returning a few moments later with a beautiful black Labrador. As the bird's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the dead parrot from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet took the dog out, but returned a few moments later with a cat. The cat jumped up and also sniffed delicately at the bird. The cat sat back, shook its head, meowed and ran out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but like I said, your parrot is most definitely 100% certifiably dead." He then turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill which he handed to the woman.The parrot's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150! she cried, $150 just to tell me my bird is dead!!" The vet shrugged. "If you'd taken my word for it the bill would only have been $20, but what with the Lab report and the Cat scan......"
