Message from Fr. Gross 07/08/2020

Fr. James Gross 
Diocese of Fargo, ND

On Wednesday, July 8th, we were able to resume our weekly Masses at Parkwood Senior Living for the first time since the end of February. Parkwood is restricting attendance for now to ten residents. Hopefully before much longer, they will open up to permit others from outside the facility to attend. I want to thank, on behalf of all of us at St. Mary’s, all the staff for caring so well for the residents during the pandemic. The isolation was hard on the residents, but we have been working toward the same goal of keeping this pesky virus out. Please continue to keep everyone at Parkwood in your prayers.

Deacon Sam Pupino and his wife Kaaren have moved back to town after having lived in Bismarck for several years. Deacon will assist at occasional Masses on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. We are glad you are able to be back home to be closer to your family!


Also, if you haven’t done so, please mark Sunday, August 23rd on your calendars. Our (soon-to-be fourth grade) candidates for Confirmation and First Communion will receive those sacraments at the 10:30 AM Mass that day. We usually join with St. Timothy’s in Manvel for this celebration in this spring, but this year it was cancelled. Please remember these young people and their families in your prayers.  

Sunday Masses

Mass may be viewed on WDAZ-TV at 10:30 a.m., EWTN at various times, and on the Fargo Diocese website & YouTube. It is also on Real Presence Radio at different times during the day.

Live streaming is still available on the Diocese of Fargo website and YouTube page. Daily Mass will be live-streamed Monday through Friday at 7 a.m., Saturday at 8 a.m., and Sunday Mass at 10 a.m. The Masses will be available to view later in the day as well.

Spiritual Communion Prayer with Our Lord anywhere:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary mural

St. Mary's Parish wishes to thank Sonya Gillen and Sarah Coulthart, the children of Doug and Pearl Winkler, for the donation of this beautiful new mural of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in our gathering area, next to the new elevator. We thank Craig Gallagher, the image's artist, who also painted the panels in our sanctuary of the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary several years ago. May this mural help to inspire all who look upon it to honor our patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to call upon her intercession. Amen.

Fr. James Gross blessed the mural on August 1st (wedding anniversary of Doug & Pearl Winkler.)
