Bishop's Pastoral Letter
The following is a letter from Bishop Daniel Felton of the Diocese of Duluth that will be read at all the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses this weekend.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
In the beginning was the Word and the Word became flesh and the flesh was called Jesus and God so loved the world that he sent His Son Jesus among us so that we might not perish but have eternal life! Game changer. Mic drop. Total reset.
On this Christmas Eve (Day), I am releasing my Pastoral Letter which is entitled, The Dawn from on High Shall Break upon us: Healing, Hope and Joy in Jesus. In our personal life, family, parish and community where we live, we endure much hurt, despair and tribulation. I bring you good news of great joy, which will come to all people; for to you is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Jesus is healing. Jesus is hope. Jesus is joy.
The Pastoral Letter captures the over fifty Listening sessions that were held throughout our diocese as together we discerned in the Holy Spirit of Jesus our next step in to Mission. It is really the Holy Spirit Who has inspired the mission and vision for all of us moving forward. Truly, the dawn from on high is breaking upon us!
I invite you to read the Pastoral Letter by going to the Diocese of Duluth website. [It can also be found on our website here.]
May the healing, hope and joy of the Christmas Christ be with you and your loved ones,
Bishop Daniel J. Felton
Diocese of Duluth

Holy Land Gifts
The following is a message from a couple from Bethlehem who have sold olive wood products in our parishes in the past:
The coronavirus pandemic has forced thousands of pilgrims to leave the Holy Land. The streets of Bethlehem and Jerusalem are empty for quite some time. The cancellation of pilgrimages having a serious repercussions for many Christian families. In the past, when the Holy Land experienced wartime conditions, some people managed to temporarily find an economic niche outside tourism. However, the pandemic measures have affected all business sectors, including olive wood industry, and everything to shut down. Even we as Holy Land Crafts & Pilgrimage group; are unable to lend them a hand during this difficult time because of the closures here in the U.S. Because our visit to your parish this year is unpredictable, we humbly ask you to visit our website WWW.HOLYLANDCRAFTS.NET and browse through the beautiful hand carved religious items. We value your support through these unprecedented times. May God bless you and keep you safe.
