Some of our Favorite Memories:

January 20, 2019
Youth Group braved the elements today (below zero!) and hung up the wooden stations of the cross plaques donated by Father Berry Schneider! Now the parishioners of our parish can enjoy walking through the pine trees praying the stations of the cross. We hope to get a sign made saying, “The Stations of the Cross in memory of Father Berry Schneider.”

Congratulations to the Confirmation class of 2018!!

May 6, 2018
Our newly confirmed students celebrated becoming full participants in the faith. Parents had made the promises of faith for their children at baptism and received the baptismal candle. In this ceremony, parents pass on the baptismal light to the confirmands signifying that they are now in charge of their faith. Watch the video on our Facebook page of the parents lighting their candles, which they then will pass on to, the confirmands.  2018 confirmands are from front to back: Samuel Manahan, Romecio Davis, Madelyn Skjeveland, Holly Schendel, Kyle Chappuis, Jonathon Caron, Joshua Caron
