East Duluth Catholic Faith Formation

The start of a brand new faith formation year is upon us. We are blessed to be able to bring all of our faith formation programs together this year to collaborate and form the East Duluth Catholic Faith Formation program. This model will include the parishes of Cathedral of Our Lady, St. Mary Star of the Sea, St. Benedict’s, St. John’s, St. Joseph’s Gnesen and St. Michael’s. Together we envision a faith formation program that utilizes the talents, resources, and gifts of all 6 parishes. These gifts and talents have helped create the vision of this new program and will continue to help us develop this program into one that is inspirational to our youth and our families. We are looking forward to getting this year started! Please click here to find registration and calendar information for the 2020-2021 school year. Registration packets can also be found at church entrances.

Safe Environment Reporting

All children need and deserve nurturing from their families and communities. Yet, a safe community where children can live and grow among caring adults does not just happen. It is created by individuals who are committed and determined to shape that safe community. Abused or neglected children especially need the help of a caring community.

Editorial: Keep up the vigilance on COVID protocols

Earlier this year we experienced the profound suffering of the suspension of public Masses due to the coronavirus pandemic, even including Easter.

After all these months, it’s wearying. But it’s also still necessary.
