What a special, blessed day!! We celebrated the confirmation students as they took in the Holy Spirit to begin their faithful, Catholic journey! Please keep these 7 kids in your prayers, that as they encounter doubt, happiness, sadness, joy, trials, successes, hurt, and love that they continue to look to the Holy Spirit for guidance, understanding, and hope. I'm so blessed to have gotten to know these children and am excited to see what the future holds. God bless!!! Mollie Moser, RE Director

“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” Matthew 5:44
Love your enemies, easier said than done, no doubt. But, remember, the foundation of stewardship is prayer.
When we are in close communication with God, it opens our heart and it turns our attention away from “me” and moves it towards God and others. It allows us to have a little more empathy for “our enemy”. When we pray for others, even “our enemies”, maybe it softens their hearts as well.
† Special invitation
You are invited to attend a short meeting in the Pastor's living room on Friday the 24th, to discuss the long term range goals of the diocese "Meeting Christ and Living Christ". This will help to write the report to the diocese by March 1. Also to find a new captain for the social justice committee associate with the diocese. Please do come and enjoy, cheese and wine will be served. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm.
† Congratulations to Jim and JoAnne Ranstrom and
David and Donna Gehrls, recipients of the Diocese of Crookston Bishop’s Medal presented to them last Sunday by Bishop Michael J. Hoeppner.
Blessings to them.
