Dear Friends,

We are being called this week to “balance” in our lives–how much do I want, how much do I need? –a wise woman used to ask. Qoheleth, Paul and Jesus have some answers for us.

Come; ponder this question with us this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Mass on Sunday, July 24, 2022, at 10 A.M. COVID restrictions are still in place for everyone’s safety.

REMEMBER to sign up for our Mary of Magdala celebration coming soon, on August 14, 2022 We will begin with a 10 A.M. Mass and a pot-luck lunch with follow. This Mary, whose feast day is actually this Friday, July 22, has been unjustly maligned through much of our Catholic history, and this celebration’s goal is to change that image, and not just for Mary, but for all women. I have come across some new exegesis with regard to this Mary that I am looking forward to sharing with you this year!

Hopefully this finds all of you reasonably well–and please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me if I can help in any way. 507-429-3616 or aaorcc2008@gmail.com.

Mass on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on July 16, 2022. COVID restrictions per board decision is that we continue to wear masks at services for the time being as new variants of OMICRON are afoot!

We will have a couple of visitors at Saturday’s Mass, celebrating with us and discreetly taking some pictures as they are doing a documentary on women priests.

Remember our Mary of Magdala celebration of women, coming up on Sunday, August 14, 2022 (new date) on the farm, starting at 10 a.m. with mass and pot-luck picnic to follow. If you haven’t yet signed up, please do so soon and let me know what you might be able to bring for potluck.

Dear Friends,

This week’s readings call us to be “hospitable” in our world. We are reminded that each of us are “traveling” through all that life brings and that each of us has a “need to be listened to,” beyond being physically cared for.

Come; be with us this week on Saturday!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mass on Sunday, July 10, 2022 at 10 A.M.–COVID restrictions will still be in place. (We will be looking at these measures again at our board meeting next week).

Coming up on Sunday, July 24, 2022 at 10 A.M. we will be again having our Mary of Magdala celebration on the farm. As you will recall, this is a Sunday to set right our older images of this Mary from prostitute to prophet and priest. In uplifting her image, we in fact uplift the images of all women. Come; celebrate with us and enjoy a pot-luck meal afterward. Being that we will be outside, masks will not be required. I will put out a separate signup sheet for this event.

Dear Friends,

We will meet once again this Sunday in our usual space for Mass. COVID seems to have passed me by now and I look forward to being with you all!

This week’s readings call us to respond to what life brings, primarily with our hearts–we are called to be compassionate, seeing others’ sufferings as our own. Much in our present day life needs such a response.

Come; pray with us this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
