Dear Friends,

Once again, we are unable to gather in person, but hopefully, this won’t be for long.

The Scriptures for this 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time call us to humbly see our place in the family of God as well as the rightful place of all others.

Let us pray together this week for this openness to the Spirit.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

The Scriptures call us into Jesus’ adult life among us this week, preparing to do what God has sent him to do. His baptism was the beginning and for us too!

Come; be with us this week!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – Epiphany -“The Three Kings”

  • Mass at 10 A.M. on Sunday, January 2, 2022. Unfortunately, COVID precautions are still in place. Vaccinations and masks are required for all in-person gatherings. We are still in a holding-pattern as we move into this New Year–let us pray earnestly that this is the year we can bid this virus, farewell!
  • After the Christmas season is completed and the AAO board has its 4th quarter meeting of last year, we will once again hold our annual board elections. Two of our current board members, Nancy Miller and Mary Ludwigson will be stepping down after several terms each, serving our community. We are most grateful to them! We have two candidates, Bill Crozier and Pat Przybylski and should be able to vote them in by unanimous ballot in a few weeks.

Dear Friends,

Sorry for the lateness of this bulletin…

With this Sunday’s Mass, we officially end the Christmas celebration, even though January 6th brings the 12 days of Christmas to a close. We are called to, “leave the crib” and do what is ours to do in the world.

Come; be with us this Sunday!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – Christmas Eve Mass

Mass at 4:30 P.M. on Friday evening, Christmas Eve. All COVID restrictions are still in place–vaccinations and boosters if people are eligible and masks are required for everyone’s safety. With numbers increasing again and the spread of the Omicron variant, we will NOT have Mass on Sunday, the Feast of the Holy Family, out of an over-abundance of caution as we figure out what this new threat may mean. We will assess as we go and I thank you all for your patience.

Please remember friends that if you need me to stop by of if you would simply like to chat, don’t ever hesitate to be in contact with me. Contact information as follows: 507-429-3616, or aaorcc2008@gmail.com.

Dear Friends,

We look forward to Friday evening, Christmas Eve for those who can physically be with us. After Christmas we will be assessing our ability to continue to meet in person–see additional thoughts above.

Christmas, amid the ups and downs of life always calls us to new life, to hope–to all that life can be for all of us.

Come; be with us–in person, or in spirit, and know that we will be remembering all of the All Are One community at this Mass–those who come physically and those who share digitally in our ministry.

Peace and love and all Christmas blessings,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

There is a sense of “urgency” in the Scriptures this week. We hear that Mary, “set out in haste,” to visit Elizabeth. A good question might be for us to ask, “What was the haste about?” What causes us to be, “in a hurry” in our own lives?

Come; ponder these questions with us this Saturday.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
