As a parish, we are committed to working together to make Jesus Christ known, loved and served in our families, throughout the Hibbing community and in the world. We are also committed to live as the Lord taught, drawing inspiration from the scriptures and strength from the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Our parish strives to nurture spiritual growth, share the gifts God has given us, and invite others into a relationship with Christ.
We are One Body, One Spirit in Christ.

UPDATE REGARDING FATHER BRIAN LEDERER
(statement from the Diocese of Duluth Communications Office)
We are continuing to closely monitor the situation involving Father Brian Lederer. We’ve also been in contact with the civil authorities to offer them our full cooperation in their investigation. In light of the serious allegations against him and in keeping with our safe environment policies and procedures, Father Lederer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the legal process. While on leave, he is not allowed to minister as a priest and or have contact with anyone under age 18.
“We are all saddened by these events and especially for anyone who may have been hurt by sexual abuse,” said Father James Bissonette, vicar general of the diocese. “We remain absolutely committed to assisting victims, to ensuring justice is done and to doing all in our power to make our parishes and schools safe places for children.”
On behalf of the parish family, we ask all to pray that God's healing grace and boundless mercy prevail in this matter for all involved.
