Altar Servers needed

Dear Parents and Altar Servers to be,

If you child wants to be an Altar Server, we need them. This is a chance for all boys and girls 2nd grade and up to get closer to Jesus, through assisting at Mass.

We are going to have a practice to learn how to serve at St. Mary's. The practice will be on Sunday, March 7th from 11:30 - 12:30.

Yours in the love of God, Mr. Don Palmiscno (701) 775-9318

1,000 Rosaries Prayer Campaign

During Lent, I am going to invite all our parishioners to take part in a "1,000 Rosaries Prayer Campaign". 

We will set up an email address specifically for people to inform us how often during Lent (one day per week, for example, or more) they will pray their rosary for specific intentions. Such as:

  1. for the conversion of hearts of our parishioners;
  2. for relief from the CCOVID-19 virus, locally and worldwide;
  3. for a greater love for and defense of the gift of human life.

You can look forward to receiving more informatin about this initiative in the weeks to come. The bottom line is, when Jesus introduce to those first diciples in Galilee, He meant to continue everywhere in the world, that people call upon His Holy Name.

Before we can confidently stand tall in the public square and advocaate for what is right and just, we first need to spend time on our knees. Amen.  -- Fr. james Gross

Year of St. Joseph

150 years ago, Pope Pius IX in his decree Quemadmodum named St. Joseph Patron of the Universal Church.  To commemorate this 150th anniversary, Pope Francis in his Patris Corde (With a Father's Heart) declared December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 the Year of St Joseph.

February's theme is Joseph, Most Chaste: Chaste love requires that one wills the good to another without taking the other to oneself as one's own. To Joseph was entrusted the Divine Child and His fairest Mother. Chaste in body, but also in heart, Joseph loved freely which created the interior tranquility of order in the Holy Family.
