No physical Mass this week, July 13, 2020, but first Zoom Mass is scheduled for July 26, 2020! Watch for updates regarding this.
We are reminded this week that we are “good seed” and as Jesus’ followers, we are called to produce, “good fruit” in our world. Among these fruits, are justice, equality, mercy and love. May we be faithful to this call!
Call me at 507-429-3616 or email, email@example.com if I can be of service, or if you just want to chat during this time of pandemic.
Peace and love,

NO PHYSICAL MASS AGAIN THIS WEEK! We will have the treat of a homily by Pastor Dick Dahl this week! Work on setting up ZOOM liturgies continues!
We continue on in these “strange” times when we cannot meet in person, but soon–hopefully, on ZOOM! Pastor Dick will supply the homily this week which I will share in a few days.
Our Scriptures this week instruct us to know that our God is near when we see the moral traits of justice, gentleness, humility–proclaiming peace to all, expressed.
Have peace my friends–stay safe and well–love to you all, Pastor Kathy
P.S. Please call, 507-429-3616 if I can help in any way, or you just want to chat. (:

NO MASS IN PERSON ONCE AGAIN! ): I have begun preliminary work with the help of a family member setting up ZOOM for our community–more later!
Please be in touch if I can help you in any way: By phone–507-429-3616 or by email–firstname.lastname@example.org.
We continue this week the challenge to live the Scriptures in our lives–hard as that may be at times, yet the call of our baptisms, just the same.
It is my hope that you all who are receiving this message continue to stay safe and well.
Blessings of peace–my love to you,

NO MASS IN PERSON AGAIN THIS SUNDAY–but I am looking at the possibility of doing a ZOOM Mass once a month–let me know your feelings about that!
Amazing times in which we live! These days we are seeing both the worst that our imperfect human natures can offer, but happily, the very best as well. As the Church Year once again moves us into Ordinary Time, that I like to call, “Extra Ordinary Time,” we are challenged by prophets, Jeremiah, Paul and Jesus–to be our best selves. Let us each do our part!
Peace and love,
Please be in touch with me if there is anything that I can do to make your life better–507-429-3616 or at email@example.com. We are all in this together!

NO PHYSICAL MASS ON SUNDAY ONCE AGAIN! Let us think about the possibility of a Mass on the Farm for the Feast of Mary of Magdala which is actually, July 22, 2020, but we would do, if we can, on Sunday, July 26, 2020. We would of course have to spread out, wear masks, and scale down our lunch, possibly with all bringing a sack lunch. Dream about it!
This Saturday, will be our brother, Eric Bartleson’s funeral. Eric died on June 8, 2020 at his home surrounded by is family. Due to Covid 19, this will be a private celebration of his life at the Fawcett Funeral home. I will now be officiating at his funeral Mass instead of just being in attendance as mentioned earlier. This is due to a “snafu” with the church.
Corpus Christi Sunday is that special day when we remember that our brother, Jesus asked us, each one of us, to be “his body, his blood” for our world. We must take his essence from the altar into the places we live, work and play.
May each of you be blessed with peace in these times of so much change and challenge and loss. Again, we remember Eric and all that he gave to us.
Love to each of you my friends,
