A Note From Our Pastor

After multiple requests from our Parishioners, I have decided to reinstate Holy Communion under both species with the first Sunday of Advent. While Christ is truly and entirely present in either bread or wine, receiving communion under both species is more in sync with Christ’s words “Take and eat it, take and drink of it.” The Church, however, leaves it up to an individual to decide whether one desires to receive both species during Holy Communion.

If you choose to receive from the chalice the following regulations apply to receiving:

1. Intinction (dipping a host in Sacred Blood) is not allowed

2. While receiving the chalice one must do it standing, not kneeling, to avoid a possibility of spilling the Sacred Blood.

3. Receive the chalice from the hands of the minister into one’s own hands and after taking a small sip return it making sure the minster has got a firm grip of it.

Let us fix our gaze on the Blood of Christ and realize how truly precious It is, seeing that it was poured our for our salvation and brought the grace of conversion to the whole world. ~ Pope Clement

Fr. Andrzej

​Our Condolences

Our prayers go out to Steve & Esther Shutt and their family on the death of their grandson, Andrew, who recently passed away.

A Celebration of Life was held on Wednesday, December 6th.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, Rest in Peace!

Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Holy Day of Obligation

9:00 a.m. with the School

6:30 p.m. 

Communal Penance Service

December 10th at 4:00 p.m. in Saint Olaf Catholic Church

What is a Penance Service?

We gather together in a single place, listen to a special reading from the Bible, often followed by a brief homily. After the homily, everyone may recite an Act of Contrition and then get in line for individual confession. This special service provides a time where it is easier to go to confession, as there are multiple priests available.

The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

We will celebrate the  Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Tuesday, December 12th. Mass will be at 6:00 p.m. followed by a wonderful Mexican dinner celebration in the Father McNamara Center.

Our Mission


Saint Teresa of Avila wrote: “When you cannot receive Communion and cannot attend Mass, you can make a spiritual communion, which is a most beneficial practice; by it the love of God will be greatly impressed on you.”

My Jesus,
I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive you sacramentally,
please come spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you now
as if you were already there 
and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me
to be separated from you.
