Dear Friends,

The heart of the Scriptures for this week is that we would strive to be our best! We constantly are challenged between good and evil and the continuum in between–is “just good enough,” good enough for us, or is God calling us to more?

Come; Zoom with us this weekend and ponder all this.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

I have continued thoughts on “hope,” as lifted up in our Scriptures for this Sunday as it seems we are all in need of this virtue in these times in which we live where in some corners, lies and selfishness abound. But hope causes us all to look to all the good that is equally around us and concentrate on that as we try as a nation to eradicate the other. Pray with us this week that more and more; we can be the change we want to see!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 24th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time in a Pandemic

Dear Friends,

NO MASS IN PERSON THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2020, BUT DO MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR SEPTEMBER 27, 2020 AT 10 A.M. CDT FOR OUR NEXT ZOOM MASS!

By way of taking a bit of a poll, would you let me know if the frequency of our Zoom Masses “feels right” or if you would like to see them oftener. At this point, I am not sure of what I can offer, but I would like to know your thoughts just the same. Thanks!

______________________________________________________________________________

Last week, I said to someone, “Hang onto the hope.” This week I would like to concentrate on that theme. You have known me long enough as your pastor to realize that I will always challenge you to be your best, but I thought this week, it might be good for a change to lift up all the good I see, which is my plan for this Sunday’s homily–all around us, even during this time where each of us can tick off many things that could be better.

So, stay safe and well–peace and love, Pastor Kathy

P.S. Please remember to give me a call if I can help in any way, or if you would just like to chat–507-429-3616 or aaorcc2008@gmail.com.

Bulletin – 23rd Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

No Mass this Sunday in person, September 6, 2020.

SAVE THE DATE: SEPTEMBER 27, 2020–NEXT ZOOM MASS!

We have a guest homilist this week in Pastor Dick Dahl. Thank you Dick for the gift of your time and energy.

We hear words this week like: “responsibility, the debt we owe, and choice.” These words are all about our brother Jesus’ call to follow in his footsteps –to love and care for our world.

As we all prepare, very soon, to cast our votes in up-coming state and national elections, as Jesus’ followers, that is all we have to ask–who will best love and care for our world? Nothing more.

Come; pray with us, even though separated, for the needs of all.

Love and peace,

Pastor Kathy

P.S. Please be in contact if I can be of help–507-429-3616 or aaorcc2008@gmail.com.

Readings: Ezekiel 33: 7-9, Romans 13: 8-10, Matthew 18: 5-10

Bulletin – 22nd Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time in a Pandemic

Dear Friends,

ZOOM MASS THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 30, 2020 AT 10:00 A.M.!!!–Hop on early at 9:45 for some fellowship time.  Watch for the Zoom link in another posting.  


Extra Ordinary Time continues and the psalmist cries out, “My soul thirsts for you O’God.”  This time of pandemic and the resulting economic downturn–as a result, along with racial unrest in our country all add up to our own cries for relief.

In the lack of leadership from State and Church, it would seem that we as individuals must work toward and be the change we  hope to see!

Come; be with us at our Zoom Liturgy this week–let us draw strength from each other.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

P.S. As always, please be in contact if I can help you during this time of pandemic in any way–by phone, 507-429-3616 or email, aaorcc2008@gmail.com
