Saints to pray to for assistance during and epidemic

As the world goes through these difficult times with the widespread of the Coronavirus, it is most helpful to remember that God lives. God, good as he is to us, only desires the best for us. That doesn't mean that he will not allow evil like the coronavirus to happen. Let us remember that the coronavirus is man-made and not made by God. It is when we use our freedom and our talents in a way that is sinful and against the plans of God for us that disaster and epidemics happen.

God also provides protection and refuge for us in times like these. Apart from the prayers and intercessions of our Blessed Mother, the "Help of Christians" and "Refuge of sinners", there are numerous saints who have set great examples for us and have obtained healing for many believers over the centuries who have asked for their intercessions. Read about two of such saints here.

I pray that you stay safe and healthy until all calms down and we can get together again around the altar to celebrate God's love in the Holy Eucharist.

COVID-19

When we sent out the bulletin on Wednesday we had not yet had confirmation as of when we were going to resume public celebration of Mass. We now have confirmation that we will resume next week, Tuesday May 26. Praise God for our bishops who have finally had the courage to speak out against this injustice against religion and people of faith. You can read the detailed protocol that was provided as guidelines for all the parishes as we go forward by clicking here, and Fr. James Bissonette's letter giving us the okay to resume the celebration of the Mass here

As I mentioned in the letter sent out to all our parishioners dated May 20, 2020, I laid out some of the things that were specific to our parishes. As of Monday, May 25th, we will get back to our regular Mass schedule, with weekday Masses at 8:30 AM and with some slight changes to the weekend Masses. The Saturday evening Mass at Immaculate Conception church will be moved to 4:30 PM instead of 5:00 and an additional Mass at St. Louis church at 6:30 PM. Sunday morning Masses at St. Mary's and St. Louis remain at 8:00 and 10:30 AM. The added Mass on Saturday eveing at St. Louis church is to provide the extra choice in a more central place for those who would prefer to go to that Mass also from Cromwell and Meadowlands areas.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues to be suspended until it is re-instated by the bishop. So anyone who has health issues or is not comfortable coming to Mass can 'STAY HOME' and follow the Mass on television or radio. All those who are sick are asked to stay home and take care of themselves. I also encourage our parishioners to choose one of the weekday Masses to go to if you do not feel comfortable gonig on Sunday when there will surely be more people present. The weekday Mass will also count, only during the pandemic period, for Sunday Mass.

During the Stay at Home period, I started having Mass on Monday mornings as well. This Mass will remain for now. In addition, we will have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Adoration after all our weekday Masses for those who wish to stay behind and adore our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. 

I look forward to seeing most of you in church again and share the Eucharist with you. God bless you and stay safe.

The new bishop for the Diocese of Duluth

Pope Francis, on June 19th, apointed a new bishop for our diocese, Fr. Michel Mulloy of the Rapid City diocese. You can read about him here

Praise God for answering our prayers. We also thank God for Fr. Jim Bissonette who served as the Diocesan Administrator for our diocese during this transition period. Let us pray for Bishop-elect Fr. Michel Mulloy as he prepares to join us here in our diocese, that our people will receive him with open hands and hearts.
