CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL The 2022-23 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL will be held next weekend in our parish. The appeal is an opportunity for us, as a faith family, to join for the work of the Lord. All families are encouraged to support the CSA. By donating to the CSA, you are answering God’s call to discipleship to put the work of God before your own needs. The Church serves each one of us in some way and our financial support is needed to continue God’s work in our area. In addition, every dollar contributed to the Appeal assists our parish in offsetting our yearly fair share of diocesan financial responsibility to our Diocesan Church. This year our goal is $60,490.00.
CHRISTIAN CRAFTERS meet in the church hall Wednesdays from 9 AM – 3:30 PM. Lunch is provided. Bring whatever craft you’d like to work on and stay as long as you’d like. It is a great opportunity to socialize and have some fun. For more information contact Arlene at 218-341-1665.
PICTORIAL DIRECTORY- LOOKING AHEAD The following dates are scheduled for photo taking for our directory – November 15,16, 17, 18 & 19. We are hoping to have a large participation within our parish. There will be more information included in upcoming bulletins about this exciting project! If you have questions or would like more questions contact Sur at 715-398-6787.

Six-year-old Lisa and her four-year-old brother Tim were sitting together with their parents in church, when Tim started giggling and talking out loud. “You’re not supposed to talk loud in church,” said Lisa.
“Why? Who’s going to stop me?” Tim asked.
Lisa pointed to the back of the church and said, “See those two men standing by the door? They’re hushers.”
