ALL ARE WELCOME!!!!  PLEASE JOIN US FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!!

All are cordially invited to join us for our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses!

Schedule:

Christmas Eve: 4:15 PM at St. Cecilia's in Nashwauk

REMINDER: Because Sunday, December 24 is both the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve this year, we have two obligations happening in close succession. Masses for the evening of Saturday, December 23 and the morning of the 24th (4th Sunday of Advent) will be our usual weekend schedule (see below). All Catholics are obliged to attend at least one Sunday Mass (Saturday evening or anytime Sunday), plus at least one Christmas Mass as listed above. You cannot attend only one Mass on Sunday and have it count for both obligations.

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation: Advent is a wonderful time to receive this Sacrament of Healing and be ready to properly celebrate the birth of our Lord. Click here to see our extended schedule of Reconciliation Times.

Bishop's Pastoral Letter

The following is a letter from Bishop Daniel Felton of the Diocese of Duluth that was read at Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses.

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

Editorial: Marriage season is here

Amid all the splendor of a northern Minnesota summer, don’t miss one of its most beautiful aspects: weddings. It’s the time of year many couples choose to begin their lives together. 

In our diocesan vocations prayer, alongside vocations to the priesthood, consecrated life, and permanent diaconate, we pray so often at Masses for an increase in “holy marriages in our diocese.” Society is undergoing a crisis of marriage and family. But it’s also true that the sacrament of marriage brings hope to society.

Interfaith advocacy for the poor and vulnerable makes an impact in 2023

Inside the Capitol 

Catholic social teaching espouses a preferential option for the poor and vulnerable. In the public policy context, this means that policies should first be evaluated based on how they will affect those most in distress (Matthew 25). It also means that addressing the needs of the poor and vulnerable should be one of the most important priorities in the legislative process, at whatever level of government.

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.
