Bulletin – 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • Mass on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at 10 A.M.
  • COVID restrictions for in-person Masses are in place: vaccinations required as well as the wearing of a mask. Other precautions are in place too.
  • I have been hearing from some that parking has been a problem of late. I would suggest coming 10-15 minutes ahead of time as a solution which would allow for perhaps more of a choice of places plus time for a short walk from a possible place at more of a distance. If walking is a problem for you, please be in contact with me. We could arrange for some sort of “valet service.” (:

Dear Friends,

This week’s gospel gives us the beautiful story of Bartimaeus who is physically blind.

This story calls us to look and to recognize all the ways that we too are blind, be it physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Come; pray with us if you can this Sunday.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 29th Weekend in Ordinary Time

  • Mass on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 4:30 P.M. Vaccinations and masks are required for all attending in-person Masses. Other precautions are in place as well for every ones’ safety. When discussing “mandates” and the need for them with others who may feel that “their freedoms” are being curtailed, it might be good to remind them that “their freedoms” are dependent on the freedoms of all–in other words, your freedom to go “maskless” or unvaccinated impedes my freedom to be safe from whatever you may be carrying!
  • Always remember that I am here to help with any needs you may be experiencing–if I can’t help you directly, I will connect you to someone who may be able to. Be in touch too if you would just like to talk. Email, aaorcc2008@gmail.com or phone, 507-429-3616. –Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

The readings this week clearly seem to be a tutorial on how to follow our brother, Jesus in this world. We can’t look, “for the way,” by focusing on the world, but must keep our eyes on Jesus, who truly, is the Way!

Come; be with us this Saturday to ponder further all of this.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mass on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 10 A.M. COVID 19 precautions: vaccinations required and wearing of masks–other precautions are in place as well to keep all of us safe.

Afghan collections –my deep gratitude to all who contributed these last two weekends–we raised $860.00 and it has, or will be sent in two separate gifts to Catholic Charities and to the Salvation Army, both out of Lacrosse for the refugees at Camp McCoy and for their resettlement. When all, “is said and done,” the parish will have given $1360.00 due to a $500 gift the board had previously allocated from existing funds.
