From the Vicar General:

I hope all is going well in your ministry. Thanks for all you are doing to promote life in this Respect Life Month. Brady and the Holy Rosary Crew are working hard for the Diocesan High School Youth Rally which is on Sunday, October 29th, at Holy Rosary in Detroit Lakes. Thanks for encouraging your high schoolers to go! We have seen a decline in attendance over the years so we are trying it on a Sunday to see if that makes a difference.

We are here to serve so don’t hesitate to call upon us.

Enjoy this edition of the New Evangelization and Justice MEMO: a mission co-op update, an exciting pilgrimage opportunity to the only approved Marian apparition in the United States, Diocese of Crookston webinar, Life and Dignity Sunday reminder, and last call for Local CCHD Grant applications!

I’m looking forward to visiting a few parishes later this month. I would be happy to visit your parish and talk about taking the first step or next step in evangelizing your parish and becoming the missionary disciples that we are called to be!
