Bishop’s invitation to diocesan synodal listening sessions in March

Bishop Neary has indicated that one of his priorities is to engage in “synodality” — a process of encountering, listening to, and walking with one another, that he has shared “is rooted in the life and ministry of Jesus”.

Pope Francis is encouraging all of the dioceses in the US – and around the world – to engage in conversations about key questions that emerged in the Synod gathering at the Vatican this past October.

Our diocese is offering a couple of in-person synodal listening sessions – Sat, March 9th (9:30 am – 1 pm; at Immaculate Conception parish in Rice), and Sat, March 23rd (9:30 am – 1 pm; at Our Lady of Victory parish in Fergus Falls). There are also two Zoom sessions – Mon, March 11th (7-9:30 pm) and Wed, March 13th (7-9:30 pm).

These are opportunities to share your thoughts, experiences and concerns of Church life, leadership and structures – in small groups, then in the larger group.

Bishop Neary has shared that “these listening sessions will help to inform our Holy Father, but – most importantly – they will provide essential information for me and our diocese.”

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.

Our Mission

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.
