Re-Opening of Our Churches
Christ the King, Holy Family and St. John Baptist de la Salle Parishioners ~
We are pleased to share with you that we are preparing to open our churches again for public Masses.
In order to insure the safety of all of our parishioners, Father John and his staff, guidelines for Mass attendance are being developed.
We ask for your patience while procedures are put in place as recommended by the Diocese of Winona-Rochester and the health officials.
We do not have a return date as of yet. More information will be shared as it comes available.
Bishop John Quinn's dispensation of all Catholics from the obligation to participate in the Mass on Sundays is in effect indefinitely.
Pentecost Sunday May 31
We hope to see you there!

Clare, COVID-19 and the Communion of Saints
Those who died from Covid-19 did not die alone.
Susan Windley-Daoust, the Director of Missionary Discipleship in our Diocese, has organized a Prayer Ministry to reach out to people who feel they need someone to pray with. They can be prayed with by phone and ultimately connected to someone at the nearest parish for prayer. Please share this with family, friends, and those who may be interested!
This is not reserved for Catholics only. It's available for anyone who needs prayer.
