Latest Updates

'TIS THE SEASON? Hackers/scammers have been targeting our parishes/parishioners with phishing emails and texts, posing as priests and asking for money. We would like to remind everyone of these scams, and that the only way you should give money to the parish is by going to the parish in person, mailing a check to the parish, or by giving online, through the parish's website. If you would like to give by any other means, you should contact the parish office in person or by phone.  Father does not e-mail/text, asking parishioners for money, gift cards, etc, saying it's a gift &/or cannot talk in person. These tactics have been used in the past with parishioners from our parishes!  

Daily and First Saturday Masses at St. Rose now start at 8:00 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m. This is to help Father Jim to better balance his work between our two parishes and the Diocesan office.

 

 

Bishop Daniel Felton has issued a COVID-19 Vaccine Statement urging the faithful to get vaccinated. He is not requiring it, however.  Click HERE to read more. 

MASS UPDATE:
In a communication to diocesan clergy, Bishop Daniel Felton has announced that the Sunday Mass obligation, which has been dispensed since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has been restored effective July 1, 2021.

However, persons are excused from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays or Holy Days under the following circumstances:

  1. You have reason to believe your health would be significantly compromised if you were to contract a communicable illness (i.e., you have underlying conditions or are in a high-risk category).
  2. You exhibit flu-like symptoms.
  3. You have good reason to think you might be asymptomatic of a contagious illness (e.g., you were in recent contact with someone who tested positive for a contagious illness such as COVID or influenza).
  4. You care for the sick, homebound, or infirmed.
  5. You are pregnant or you are 65 years of age or older (per the CDC’s recommendation for high-risk individuals).
  6. You cannot attend Mass through no fault of your own (e.g., no Mass is offered; you are infirm; or, while wanting to go, you are prevented for some reason you cannot control, such as your ride did not show up).
  7. You have significant fear or anxiety of becoming ill by being at Mass.

If situations 1 through 3 apply to you, prudent concern for your neighbor should lead you to stay home.
If you fall within situations 4-7, please exercise good judgment, consider the common good, and know you would not be held to the obligation of attending Mass.
For further questions about the application of any of these situations, please contact the St. Raphael office.

*All pews are now open for seating, missalettes are back in the pews and singing is allowed. Holy water fonts have been filled and hand sanitizer is still available near the doors. Those who come to worship may choose to wear a mask or may choose to not wear a mask. If you need a mask, free masks are available. If you are not feeling well, please stay home for your own safety and the safety of others.

News from the Diocese of Duluth

A Christmas message from Bishop Daniel Felton

Dear Followers and Friends of Jesus,

May I take this occasion to wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas! The birth of the Son of God into our world is THE game changer for all eternity. It is in the birth of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior that the Kingdom of God is at hand. In the person of Jesus, we have the real opportunity in our everyday lives to touch, embrace, and embody divine life, love, mercy, hope, and joy. In response, we join the angels in singing, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to people of good will!”
