Editorial: Marriage season is here

Amid all the splendor of a northern Minnesota summer, don’t miss one of its most beautiful aspects: weddings. It’s the time of year many couples choose to begin their lives together. 

In our diocesan vocations prayer, alongside vocations to the priesthood, consecrated life, and permanent diaconate, we pray so often at Masses for an increase in “holy marriages in our diocese.” Society is undergoing a crisis of marriage and family. But it’s also true that the sacrament of marriage brings hope to society.

Interfaith advocacy for the poor and vulnerable makes an impact in 2023

It also means that addressing the needs of the poor and vulnerable should be one of the most important priorities in the legislative process, at whatever level of government.

For God So Loved the World – December 8-10, 2023

Advent Silent Retreat for Men and Women presented by Susan Stabile

Advent is the time that we come to a deeper understanding of what it means that God became human in the person of Jesus Christ. This time of preparation for the birth of Christ affords us the opportunity to deepen our relationship with God, to grow in the spiritual freedom necessary to welcome Christ more fully into our hearts and lives, to reflect and pray on the spiritual dimension of Advent and discern how we may grow in our response to the gift of Incarnation.  Come and deepen your understanding of what it means for you to participate in birthing Christ into our world. Register online at kingshouse.com.  Suggested Donation $240 ($50 at time of registration & $190 at the conclusion of the retreat). If you or a friend would like to attend this retreat experience but are hesitant due to financial restrictions, please contact our office to complete your registration. Space is limited for this retreat, so register early.
