Bulletin – 14th Sunday in [Extra] Ordinary Time during a time of Pandemic – July 5, 2020

Dear Friends,

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. (:

Bulletin – 13th Sunday in Extra Ordinary Time – In a Time of Pandemic

Dear Friends,

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–krredig@hbci.com.


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,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 12th Sunday in Extra Ordinary Time in a Time of Pandemic and National Unrest

Dear Friends,

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,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – Corpus Christi Sunday in a Time of Pandemic and National Unrest

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. 


Dear Friends,

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,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – Trinity Sunday in a Time of Pandemic and National Unrest

AGAIN–NO PHYSICAL MASS THIS SUNDAY

Remember to keep our brother, Eric B. in your prayers.


Dear Friends,

This has been a momentous week filled with much upheaval and unrest–in many ways, a much-needed week in the wake of the brutal murder of our black brother, George Floyd, at the hands of white police officers as we hopefully, now, begin to address systemic racism in our country.

This weekend we celebrate the goodness of our trinitarian God who comes as Creator, Savior, Spirit-friend–to be one of us and with us.  Praising our God who is One “of kindness and mercy” is a wonderful backdrop as we confront the evil of racism .

Peace and love to all,

Pastor Kathy

P.S. Please be in touch if I can serve you in any way.
