From Our Pastor
With much gratitude and prayer from our parish community, I am happy to introduce to you all our new homebound ministry coordinator, Julie Olsen.
Homebound ministry is such an important work of bringing the Spirit alive in our parish. The focus of this ministry is to ensure we as Christians are caring for those who are most in need of our parishioners, particularly Sacramentally, for instance care/visits for the homebound, those in nursing homes, those needing anointing before surgery, the elderly who need a visit from the community, etc. Such a fulfilling ministry and I am so please that Julie discerned the call to serve our parish community. Thank you Julie!
Her contact information, if you have a loved one who is in need of a visit is: email@example.com and her number 794-1688
Please reach out to her and thank her stepping forward to serve those who are in need.
With much gratitude,
Father Ben Uhlenkott

What is the Prayer to St. Michael?
Can a prayer be inspired by a battle? Pope Leo XIII wrote the Saint Michael prayer, in 1884, after seeing a frightening vision: evil spirits, trying to fulfill Satan’s boast to destroy our Lord’s Church within a century, were engaging in fierce attacks against it.
Although the Pontiff also saw St. Michael casting Satan (also known as the devil) and his demons back into Hell in his vision, he was so horrified by what he had seen, he felt compelled to help defend our faith in this struggle.
