Fan into Flame! All are welcome to prepare your hearts for Advent! This free event will be on Wed., Nov. 28th from 6:30pm-8pm at Blessed Sacrament. Aly Aleigha will be here to offer her beautiful musical talents.... Please join us!

In May 2015 she graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH where she studied Theology and Catechetics with a Youth Ministry concentration. She recently transitioned into full-time music & speaking after working for Father Mike Schmitz at UMD-Newman and the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary in Duluth, MN for two years. She is heavily involved with the Catholic community in Duluth, leading music at many diocesan and UMD Newman events. On September 3, 2016 Aly released her full album "The Labyrinth." On January 24, 2018, she signed with a record label - Rekindle Records and plan to release a new song with them sometime mid-2018.
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.
In Nov. 2015, the Parish received new Missals from JourneySongs, which is a permanent, hard cover book that includes Sunday readings for all three liturgical cycles (A, B, & C), many beautiful prayers and reflections and Rites of the new Church. We are offering Hymnal Memorials. If you would like to dedicate a book “in memory of a loved one, or to honor someone you know”, please fill out the Hymnal Memorial form and return to the Parish Office. Forms can be found at the church entrances, or please stop by the Parish Office.
Recommended donation per book: $20

In re: Crosier Fathers of Onamia, Case No. 17-41682
In re: The Crosier Community of Phoenix, Case No. 17-41683
To whom it may concern:
As you may or may not know, the above-referenced entities (collectively, the "Crosiers") have filed Chapter 11 reorganization case. On August 25, 2017, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota entered an important Order in the reorganization cases of the Crosiers.
The Order requires persons holding claims for compensation against the Crosiers to submit such claims by December 15, 2017. You are receiving this letter because one or more persons associated with the Crosiers against whom there is a credible claim for sexual abuse served at one time in your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School. The information in the enclosed Posted Notice explains the requirement to submit claims.
I am writing to ask that you assist me, and any people who worship and live in and around your community who may have claims against the Crosiers, by posting the enclosed Posted Notice on any public notice or message board for continuous display from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Additionally, or alternatively, I ask that you place the Posted Notice on the website of your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Any and all efforts to assist in getting notice to the broadest number of people possible will be greatly appreciated.
If you need additional copies or a digital file of the Posted Notice, please contact me. Thank you for your kind assistance.
Yours in Christ,
