Welcome from Fr. Kris McKusky
For you hear the words, “The Body of Christ” and respond “Amen.” Be then a member of the Body of Christ, that your “Amen” may be true. (St. Augustine, Sermo 272)
The words of St. Augustine remind us of the transforming power of the Eucharist: that we are to become who we have received. As Catholic-Christians, we are to be Christ’s presence to the world serving God and neighbor. The Eucharist strengthens and transforms us, giving us the power and energy that we need to go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your lives.
Words from Pope Francis
“Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.”
"I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful: it needs nearness, proximity."
To promote a strong Catholic faith community by
- encouraging & enabling active participation on parish committees
- strengthening religious education on all levels, youth to adults
- fostering parish growth
- addressing facility needs
To Pray, Learn, Serve, and Share
To follow what Pope Francis is encouraging us to do and be.
To "be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself" in outreach.
To "heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful"

When you read this, the 2018 elections will have passed. The anger will continue to boil, and new opportunities for outrage will undoubtedly abound. The demonization of political opponents will persist, and the saddling of the American presidency with criminal investigations and threats of impeachment will likely become a permanent feature of our politics.

“If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy” (1 Corinthians 12:26).
St. Paul established a Christian community in Corinth about the year 51. The city, a major seaport and commercial crossroads, struggled with issues of moral depravity, factionalism, questions of leadership, and other cultural woes that spilled into its celebration of the liturgy. St. Paul courageously responded to issues of conscience in the light of faith in Jesus Christ — there really is nothing new under the sun.Read More

“Love persists in the midst of ruins.”
That might be the most apt takeaway from Colin McIver’s presentations at the Diocese of Duluth’s 13th annual Diocesan Assembly, held Oct. 13 at Marshall School in Duluth. It was attended by about 170 people.Read More

Easter Message 2014
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Christ died and rose once for all, and for everyone, but the power of the Resurrection, this passover from slavery to evil to the freedom of goodness, must be accomplished in every age, in our concrete existence, in our everyday lives. How many deserts, even today, do human beings need to cross! Above all, the desert within, when we have no love for God or neighbor, when we fail to realize that we are guardians of all that the Creator has given us and continues to give us. God's mercy can make even the driest land become a garden, can restore life to dry bones (cf. Ez 37:1-14).
So this is the invitation which I address to everyone: Let us accept the grace of Christ's Resurrection! Let us be renewed by God's mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.
And so we ask the risen Jesus, who turns death into life, to change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace. Yes, Christ is our peace, and through him we implore peace for all the world.
