 “He said, “Come”. Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.” - MATTHEW 14:29    When you hear Jesus calling, do you responded immediately and trust that He knows what He’s doing?  If so, you are walking on water! When we say “yes” to Jesus, we feel the power of his presence in our lives.  We can feel the freedom it gives us!  Listen how Jesus is calling you to live the extraordinary life He has in mind for you.

Our Religious Education Classes will be under way before we know it and we are in need of teachers.  Can you spare one hour a week?  How about being a substitute or sharing responsibilities for one class with another teacher?  No matter how much or how little you feel you can give, we would appreciate every bit!  All materials are provided.  Classes can be as simple as reading and discussing from the appropriate classroom book or as elaborate as arts and crafts of your choosing.  So, whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or helpful parishioner, we would invite you to join us this year.  Please contact Jeanne Clausen at 218-437-6032 for more information or to volunteer.

 This year we are asking that all families who have school aged children attending our Religious Education program (grades PS-12), fill out the registration sheet found in this week’s bulletin.  This will provide us with contact information needed in case of inclement weather cancellations, schedule changes or fun updates on what your children may be working on in class.  There is a drop off box by the bulletin board in the Church for the forms.  Thank You.
