In Remembrance Liturgy

The month of November is always set aside as a time of prayer for our loved ones who have gone before us. With this in mind, we wish to invite everyone to a special prayer service at 2:00 P.M. on Sunday, November 17th, at Holy Cross Church. This prayer service is called "In Remembrance" and it gives us a prayerful way to remember our loved ones. We will especially remember the members of Sacred Heart Parish, Saint Therese Parish, Saint Rita Parish, Holy Cross Parish and the Crosier Priory who died during the past year. We will show our faith in the Resurrection by lighting a candle for each person that we pray for.

Catholic Charities Collection

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud conducts its annual campaign in November every year. The central office of Catholic Charities will be mailing an envelope directly to your home and asking you to help your neighbors in need. Catholic Charities provides food shelves, emergency housing, adoption services, counseling services, and services to veterans in the 16 counties of the Diocese of St. Cloud. Locally, they operate Meals on Wheels and Senior Dining Centers in Wahkon and Onamia. Please review the material that you receive and consider making a gift in order to "Make God's Love Visible" in central Minnesota. Fr. Jerry Schik, o.s.c.
