Dear Friends,

This Sunday is all about joy–we can use pink or white as the liturgical color. In fact, as Jesuit, Dan Schutte says, Advent is all about “joy”–joy in a God who loves us so much.

Come; pray with us this Sunday!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 2nd Sunday of Advent

Mass on Sunday, December 4, 2022 at 10 A.M. COVID restrictions still in place. This still seems wise what with the presence of flu and RSV in addition. Thus, we will not look toward having pot-lucks until spring when hopefully we will be at a better place.

Please never hesitate to be in touch, by calling, 507-429-3616 or by email, aaorcc2008@gmail.com if I can help in any way.

Dear Friends,

It would seem that the coming of our God will be made manifest in God’s Spirit through Jesus and the operative word will be, “justice.”

Come, let us ponder this mystery together this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin –1st Sunday of Advent

  • First of all, for anyone that I have missed, a most happy day to each of you! I know some of you may be alone today and if that is the case, may the joy of this day come to you in unexpected ways! There have been joys and sufferings this past year that may be hard to let go of–but let us try, together, with hope.
  • Mass is on Sunday, November 27, 2022 at 10:00 A.M. All are welcome!

Bulletin – Feast of Jesus, the Christ, our Brother and Friend

  • Mass on Saturday at 4:30 P.M. November 19, 2022. COVID restrictions still in place.
  • Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 24, 2022. My prayer for each of you is that you can reflect on all your blessings more so then your sufferings on this day and enjoy everything that you can. Know of my deep gratitude for each of you and your generosity to our parish.

Dear Friends,

This week we recognize an ending of one Church Year and the beginning of a new one with the First Sunday of Advent the following week. Endings and beginnings always call us to realize, “what has been and what can be,” going forward.

Let us join each other this Saturday as we all strive to be our best.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

This Sunday will be the last in Ordinary Time. Next weekend concludes our present Church Year with the feast of Jesus, the Christ, our Brother and Friend. The end of anything is always the beginning of something else.

Come; pray with us this week that each of us might strive again, to be “all that we can be!”

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
