February 18, 2018 - 1st Sunday of Lent

“After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God….” - Mark 1:14

Do you ever think about how difficult it must have been for Jesus to come into Galilee, knowing that John had just been arrested for teaching the same message that Jesus was proclaiming. It must have taken great love and trust for Jesus to do what the Father had sent Him here on earth to do. In the same way, following a life of stewardship takes great love and trust from us. We must be willing to surrender completely to God, trusting that God will always give us all that we need to fulfill His plan for us.

It takes everyone in our Parish to make sure everything runs smoothly.  We are looking for new “talent” to ensure that St. Rose meets the needs of all our members.  There are sign up sheets located in the back of the Church. Please take time and prayer to consider being involved in one area or another. 


    We are pleased to announce the beginning of the Diocesan Annual Appeal.  The Diocesan goal for the Appeal has been raised for the first time in three years by $10,000 and is now $900,000.  This goal is shared and pro-rated among our 66 parishes based on the prior year’s offertory. Our parish goal for 2018 is $ 12,593.00 which is an increase of $1,147.00. You will each receive an Annual Appeal letter from Bishop Hoeppner at home in your mailbox.  Enclosed will be a brochure that outlines how DAA funds are spent during the year. Envelopes and prayer cards are available here in our own parish.  Please pray about a gift to the Annual Appeal.  It feels great to  support the work of the Church! Check out our website at to see what a wonderful impact your gift will make.  Prayer request cards are enclosed in all the mailings from Bishop Hoeppner. Whether or not you are able to make a gift, Bishop asks that you mail in your prayer requests so that he and his staff can pray for your intentions at daily Mass.



National Black and Indian Mission Collection TODAY, our parish will take up the 134th annual National Black and Indian Mission Collection.  Our support of this collection helps build the Church in African American, Native American, and Alaska Native communities from coast to coast.  Schools, parish religious education programs, and diocesan ministries depend on your generosity to help them spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Please give generously.

What a great time of year to take care of your spiritual healing.  Many in our parish have attended Cursillo weekends over the years and give great testimony to the power of such weekends.

Cursillo is pronounced KER-SEE-O meaning - short course in Christianity.

Weekends are being offered this fall and next spring at Sand Hill Bible Camp, just south of Fosston.

The weekends include quiet time, inspirational talks, and most importantly, time to be with Jesus without the many distractions of daily life.

Grow closer to Jesus by taking the time to join us. HE will bless your sacrifice of time for HIM.

The weekend starts Thursday evening and ends Sunday afternoon.

The Men's will be held February 22-25.

The Women's will be March 15-18. contact Carol Olsonawski (218-689-9081) or Bobbi Mercil (701-866-5706) for more information. Applications can be printed at
