Conversion - Our next Teaching Tuesday Series


When you hear the word “Conversion,” what comes to mind?  Catholicism defines “conversion” as a life-long process of turning one’s attention and energy toward an ever-deepening relationship with Christ. Join us as we begin the DVD-based program, Conversion:  Following the Call of Christ, presented by Fr. Robert Barron.

Using six stories from the Bible, Bishop Barron demonstrates how ordinary, sinful people like us are met by Jesus and called to a better life through him.

On Tuesday, January 17th, our parish will begin the Conversion:  Following the Call of Christ program. The series will run three weeks in January (17, 24) and every Tuesday in February all beginning at 7:00 PM. No fee or registration. To find out more information, please contact Elisabeth Cyr at 724-4828 or

First out of the gate is the Men’s Conference, featuring speaker Trent Horn, which is set for March 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Marshall School in Duluth. Horn is a convert to the Catholic faith with a degree in theology from Franciscan University. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles College and is a regular guest on the radio program Catholic Answers Live, a lecturer and author of two books.

Betsy Kneepkens: A tribute to Holy Rosary School as a last child graduates

Thirty-plus years ago my husband and I made the decision to plant our roots in northern Minnesota. We knew that came with some benefits, but this decision also came with some challenges. My husband was mostly raised in the Green Bay area, and I grew up outside Chicago. At that time, the closest family member was eight hours away with a difficult drive at best. Thankfully the highways have improved since then.

The disadvantages of living so far away from our extended family meant that a great effort was needed to maintain our family ties and connect our children with their relatives. It was tough, at times, to hear about the parties or special events that other family members attended nearby, while distance prevented us from participating. Nieces and nephews were born, and it would sometimes be months and too often years before we met them in person.

Jason Adkins: Catholics, it’s time to come to the Capitol!

This year, the bishops of Minnesota are hosting an exciting event in St. Paul on March 9 called Catholics at the Capitol. With critical issues such as the legalization of assisted suicide and persistent family poverty at stake, Catholics concerned with life and human dignity cannot afford to miss it.
