The STJB Faith Formation Students will be participating in the Catholic Charities' Baby Bottle Campaign for the month of October. Each student will be raising money to fill their "Baby Bottle" and it will go towards financial grants provided by Catholic Charities' for women in our Diocese for rent, utilities, medical care, educational assistance, child care assistance and parenting education. Also, the campaign will raise awareness in pregnancy, parenting and adoption programs. For more information contact the Parish Office at 507-462-3636 and ask for STJB Faith Formation!
All Saints' Day is a solemn holy day of the Catholic Church celebrated annually on November 1. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church, that is, all those who have attained heaven. It should not be confused with All Souls' Day, which is observed on November 2, and is dedicated to those who have died and not yet reached heaven.
This year the Mass in our TriParish for All Saints’ Day is on Tuesday, October 31st at 5:30 pm at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Easton. For another option, there will be Mass at St. Teresa’s in Mapleton on Wednesday, November 1st at 6:30. If you choose to go to the Mass in Mapleton, please let me know by Tuesday, October 31st. Your child will be excused from Faith Formation class on November 1st.
