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 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.
