Pre-Lenten Retreat for Women—February 6
Pope Francis has declared this year as the Year of Mercy. Pax Christi and Holy Spirit Parishes invite women of all local parishes to join us in exploring, “
The Name of God is Mercy
” on Saturday, February 6 from 8:30-11:30 AM at Holy Spirit.
Sr. Linda Wieser and Sr. Kathy Warren of Assisi Heights will explore with us the mercy that is shown us by God and also help us focus on the mercy we can show to others. The morning will begin with Mass at Holy Spirit at 8:30 AM, followed by a light breakfast. The presentation will begin at 9:30 AM.
There is no charge for the retreat, however, a freewill donation will be taken. Please join us for all or part of the morning. If you have any questions, please call Sandi Fitterer at 507-271-0359.
LIVE FROM HOLY SPIRIT PARISH –
it’s A PARISH HOME COMPANION!
As part of the celebration of Holy Spirit’s 25
Anniversary, plans are underway for some fabulous entertainment on Friday, April 15. Imagine a combination of A Prairie Home Companion, Saturday Night Live and a Mantorville Melodrama – all done with talent featuring Holy Spirit parishioners. Sound like a blast? We think so, too! The show will use a format that celebrates the story of our parish by incorporating fun historical trivia as well as musical acts, comedy skits, and more.
So...calling all singers, musicians, story tellers/emcees, actors, comedians, jugglers, and general all-around entertainers (or “show-offs!). All talents are welcome, with the only stipulation being that every act should have good entertainment value and should be appropriate to display in our worship space.
All those with a specific “act” to share will be auditioned to determine best placement in the show. Please go to
to sign up for a time slot.
Willing to share your talent but don’t have any particular “act”? No problem! We’ll find a role that’s perfect for you. Don’t want to be ‘on stage’ but still want to help? Wonderful! We need all sorts of production help: writers, stage-hands, light/sound techies, choreography, programs, sound effects, props, and post-show reception planners. Please consider what talent
will share in honor of our 25
anniversary as a truly amazing parish!
Questions? To get answers or to participate in any aspect of the show, contact Chet or Elynn Welle at 507-288-4266 or
or see one of the Planning Committee members at the poster display after Masses in the next few weeks. Let’s get this show on the road!
