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. Visit the Diocese of Duluth Safe Environment page.

Diocese of Duluth News

Father Richard Kunst: A sure way to keep your parish open

Of all the priests in our diocese there is one in particular who you might call our “living history book.” I have had many occasions to listen to Father Dick Partika talk about everything and anything you wanted to know about the history of the Diocese of Duluth. I have always been amazed by all the facts he has contained in his memory, so if he is reading this column he might very well find reason to confirm or correct what I am about to say.

Betsy Kneepkens: Enjoying the last moments before the nest is empty

“It goes by really fast.” I could not count how many times older parents shared this advice during my oldest son’s first year. I heeded their warnings and took their message to heart. I always believed the days raising my children would fly by while leaving me with the sentiment of “where did all the time go.”

What’s a Catholic voter to do?

Q&A with Jason Adkins, executive director of the Minnesota Catholic Conference, first published in the Central Minnesota Catholic as part of “The Big Question” series.

What does the church say about Catholics’ involvement in political life and voting? Shouldn’t the church stay out of politics? Is there any scriptural basis for its involvement?
