How can I continue to contribute to my parish if there are no Masses?
We are all under greater pressure during these trying days, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. I understand if you are not able to contribute financially as you have in the past, but I ask that you continue to support your church as you are able since these times also place a greater strain on our parishes.
You can continue to contribute to your parish by mailing in your envelope to our office at P.O. Box 86 Gilman, MN 56333 or by making an automatic contribution by filling out the following form. Thank you for your continued support.
The Mission Statement of the Churches of Sts. Peter & Paul, St. Elizabeth, and St. Joseph
We, the Roman Catholic Communities of Sts. Peter & Paul in Gilman, St. Elizabeth in Brennyville, and St. Joseph in Morrill, Minnesota, participate in the Mission of the Diocese of St. Cloud and the Universal Church for the glory of God the Father. We are members of the living Body of Christ here on earth to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ, by proclaiming the Gospel, by celebrating the Sacraments, by strengthening the faith of our families, and by serving others.
In our relationship with God and one another our goals are to:
-Worship God through Jesus Christ centering on the Eucharist.
-Encourage, teach and support spiritual growth to people of all generations.
-Invite each parishioner to share their time, talent, and treasure with the church.
-Spread the message of Jesus Christ by works of charity, justice, and evangelization.
