Catholics Come Home Website
Catholics Come Home is an evangelization campaign to welcome „lost? Catholics back into the church as well as to strengthen the faith of our faithful and help them spread Catholicism. Bishop LeVoir and the Diocese of New Ulm support the campaign.
ROSARY SOCIETY: The founder of the Confraternity is St. Dominic, who at the request of the Blessed Virgin, introduced and established the prayer of the Most Holy Rosary. Each member in good standing of the Holy Rosary Confraternity share in the prayers, good works and Masses of the society throughout the world. Each member gains extraordinary Indulgences, applicable to the souls in purgatory. The Rosary Society invites men & women of the parish to join the confraternity and share in the abundance of graces. Dues are only $3.00 per year, meetings are four times per year and we hold a bake sale on Palm Sunday with the money going towards altar needs.

To join, contact Celia Knoll at the parish office 320-327-2356.
