Pope Francis at Santa Marta: On the Folly of Hard-Hearted Christians
2017-10-17 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta on Tuesday – the Feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr. Following the Readings of the Day, the Holy Father reflected on the “foolishness” of those, who are unable to hear the Word of God, preferring appearances, idols, or ideologies – like the people of Jerusalem, whose faithlessness caused Our Lord to weep nostalgic tears.

St. Mary Star of the Sea Projects this Fall
The Finance Council approved moving forward with the tuck pointing of St. Mary Star of the Sea brickwork and repairs of the metal trim of the steeple. The work should take place this Fall. The Council also approved rebuilding the retaining wall along the parking lot on the west end of the rectory and the replacement of fencing in that area and in the alley behind the rectory. This work may also be done this Fall if the weather cooperates. If you would like to make a contribution towards these needed maintenance projects, please mark your check or envelope “SMSS Projects”. Thank you for helping us maintain our beautiful church. Read more posts here.

“Then every scribe who has been instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his store room both the new and the old” (Matthew 13:52). Recently, the “store room” of the Diocese has been producing new and old blessings in abundance.
The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery celebrated 125 years since the foundation of their Monastery. As you might imagine, the Sisters celebrated with great jubilation! A Mass of Thanksgiving was offered at Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel. Friends, family, and honored guests were treated to a lovely reception, heavy hors d’oeuvres (actually an abundance of delicious food throughout the Monastery), an open house, guided tours, and story-telling by the sisters. It was a day of thanksgiving.Read More

His parish, St. John in Duluth, will be offering just that Oct. 30, when it hosts Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla, the daughter of St. Gianna Molla, a patron saint of the pro-life movement.Read More
