From the Vicar General:

I hope and pray your Lenten journey to Easter has been fruitful. Holy Week will be upon us in no time. Please plan on participating in the Chrism Mass on Monday of Holy Week, which is March 26. Mass begins at 6:30 p.m. at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. As a diocesan Church, it is one of the the most beautiful liturgical celebrations of the year.

I want to draw your attention to a new, printable Diocesan Deanery Map. The Diocese of Crookston has five deaneries and each deanery has an appointed Dean (one of the pastors in that geographical location) who gathers the priests and deacons (if available) in order to share and coordinate ministry in the respective area. The deanery list by Dean and city can also be found on our website HERE.

Blessings on the rest of your Lenten pilgrimage!

Your brother in Christ,

Msgr. Mike Foltz, J.C.L.
