Prayer Chain:  If you would be interested in participating in a prayer chain, please contact Marlena Hillemeier (320) 761-9515. Each member of the chain will pray in the will of God on behalf of the prayer request we receive. Requests can be a special intention or for an individual person. It is our hope that by praying for the needs of others we can spread God's love to everyone we pray for.            

Home Visits:  If anyone is interested in assisting Father with home visits for our parishioners that are not able to attend Mass, please contact Amber. We are trying to set up a visiting schedule and Father could use some help with directions and possibly bringing along some baked goods for the visits.

Reconciliation:  Reconciliation is offered a half hour before Mass or by appointment. Please step into the sacristy to inform Father you are ready if using the confessional!

Eucharistic Adoration:  Come receive the graces of Eucharistic Adoration

     Eucharistic Adoration is any prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament (whether in front of a closed Tabernacle or in front of the exposed host in a monstrance.

      Wisdom, calmness, patience and joy are just a few of the many fruits that come from Adoration.

     Come read, pray a rosary, pray spontaneously, journal or just sit quietly in the Lord's presence.

     Adoration is available when the church is open - 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Sit near the Tabernacle in the front left side of the church. Even if you only have a few minutes, come adore!

     Every first Tuesday of the month, join us for 9:00 a.m. Mass when an additional time of prayer and Adoration will take place. Following Mass, the Rosary will be prayed and then there is time for Eucharistic Adoration. Feel free to add your own intentions that we will pray for during this time.

     "We cannot be messengers of God's consolation if we do not experience first the joy of being consoled and loved by Him... When we remain in prayerful silence in His presence, when we meet Him in the Eucharist this consoles us!"  Pope Francis
