Today, our second collection is for the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa.  The people of Africa are joyous and faith-filled, but they also often face challenges due to poverty, the high incidence of disease, food shortages, and migration.  This collection is an opportunity to stand with the people of Africa and support pastoral projects that are so needed on this continent.  Please be generous today.  To learn more, visit

**NEED A WINTER RETREAT? What a great time of year to take care of your spiritual health! Many in our parish have attended Cursillo weekends over the years and give great testimony to the power of such weekends. Cursillo is pronounced KER-SEE-O meaning - short course in Christianity. Weekends are being offered this winter at Sand Hill Bible Camp, just south of Fosston. The weekends include quiet time, inspirational talks, and most importantly, time to be with Jesus without the many distractions of daily life. The weekend starts Thursday evening and ends Sunday afternoon.  The Men's will be held February 23-26 and the Women's will be March 16-19.  If these dates do not work into your schedule there will also be weekends available this fall.  The Men's will be held September 28-October 1 and the Women's will be October 26-29.  Contact Carol Olsonawski (218-689-9081) or Bobbi Mercil (701-866-5706) for more information.  Applications can be printed at or contact your parish office.
