St. Mary's Mission Church Fire Relief

Our hearts go out to those affected by the devastating fire at St. Mary’s Mission Church in Red Lake, Minnesota.  We recently learned that one concrete way we could express our affection would be to purchase a large Nativity scene (crèche) for the parish and school, to replace the one that was destroyed by the fire.

The St. Pascal community is encouraged to show its support through financial gifts towards the purchase of the crèche.  All funds collected beyond the price of the crèche will be forwarded to St. Mary’s—100% of your tax-deductible donations will go directly to support those affected.

Advent Reflection with Fr. Mike Byron: Where is Jesus in the Old Testament?

Tuesday, December 12 in Brioschi Hall from10:00 AM -12 Noon OR 7:00 - 9:00 PM

Two options!  Choose the best for you.

Christians claim that the Word of God, Jesus Christ, existed before time began (John 1).  And yet we also claim that he was born of Mary in a specific moment in history, in Israel about 2,000 years ago (Luke 1).  It raises an interesting question as to who, how, and where this Jesus-Christ-Word was in the meantime.  As part of our Advent reflection, we will explore some of the ways that the Church has tried to come to grips with this deep Mystery, and how we have come to recognize him in some of the literature of the Hebrew Bible.

Please register online or contact the parish office by Monday, December 11 if you plan to attend so we can prepare appropriately for hospitality.
