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.
Confidential prayer requests
Confidential prayer requests for the sick will be gathered at the entrances of the Church this January through February 11th, World Day of the Sick, which was founded by Pope John II and coincides with the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Pope Francis stated in a message on World Day of the Sick, "that, just like “Mary’s maternal vocation for all humanity, the Church, with its long standing tradition of service to the sick, keeps its own maternal vocation to the needy and to the sick". Petitions will be included in the intercessory prayers at the 8 am Mass on the 11th. Ask for prayers for yourself, or imitate the friends of the sick man in the Gospel of Mark, 2:4, who brought their friend to Jesus. Let us pray for the sick.
Catholics at the Captial! 2-19-19
Bishop Sirba invites each of you to attend Catholics at the Capitol! On Tuesday, February 19th, thousands of Catholics from across Minnesota are coming together for life and dignity to make Catholic voices count at the Capitol. Catholics at the Capitol is a day filled with prayer and inspirational speakers including actor Jim Caviezel from The Passion of the Christ, and Archbishop Charles Chaput, a leading voice on living out our role as faithful citizens. Plus, Gloria Purvis of EWTN returns as emcee, and Danielle Rose will perform her music throughout the day. You’ll meet other Catholics from your legislative district, and together you’ll learn about policy issues affecting life and dignity before meeting with your legislators.
