Everyone can do something. - Mother Teresa


Fr. John Gerritts - May 13, 2018

How great it has been to have some summer-like days! Unfortunately I think we may have missed spring all together. With the arrival of spring – on the calendar at least – it means that we have two of our Parish Pastoral Council members completing their four-year terms of service. Thank you to Kay Kromrey and Jerod Krenz who served on our Council over the past four years. With their departure from the Council it means that we are looking for two members of our Parish to fill their positions.

If you have an interest in serving on the Parish Pastoral Council, please contact me and I will be happy to tell you more about it and answer any questions you may have. There is a short questionnaire that I can provide for you to complete. The Council looks at its current members, reviews the information about those interested in serving, and discerns who might best help the Council. The deadline for submitting a questionnaire is Friday, May 25. We are also in need of recording secretaries for both our Pastoral and Finance Councils. Let me know if you are willing to help with either or both of these.

Our Deanery (a subpart of the diocese) is sponsoring a Saint Andrew Dinner. Saint Andrew is considered the first apostle called to follow Jesus. He in turn invited his brother Saint Peter to follow. So a Saint Andrew Dinner is the opportunity for priests to invite individuals interested in learning more about becoming a priest. It is a chance to hear the stories of priests, their call to serve, and enthusiasm for ministry. It is in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages questions and dialog. Bishop Powers will be present, along with several priests from our area, and some of the younger priests from our Diocese such as Father Patrick McConnell, Father Samuel Schneider, Father Adam Laski, and Father David Neuschwander. 

The Dinner is Wednesday, May 30, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM at Immaculate Conception Parish in New Richmond. The dinner is for anyone in the later middle school years, high school, college, or young adults, and their parents. If you have an interest in attending, contact me by May 24. I would also be happy to answer any questions you have about the evening.

There is also an opportunity for girls who may be considering a vocation to religious life. The Archdiocese of Saint Paul/ Minneapolis is sponsoring Quo Vadis for young women ages 14-17 at the University of Saint Thomas. Quo Vadis is a three day experience to learn about listening to God’s call, question where they are going (quo vadis), and learn about religious life from Sisters who will be present for the camp. Registration can be done directly at

Finally, if you are looking for a spring night out on the town, join our 7th and 8th graders at the Phipps Theater in downtown Hudson for their performance of Hillbilly Hayride. It is a musical comedy of two families who it seems are always fussin’ and a-feudin’. The colorful characters are sure to entertain you and make you laugh. Tickets for the 7 PM performances on May 17 and 18 can be purchased in advance at the school office or at the Phipps prior to the performance. There is also a 1 PM dress rehearsal on May 17 and a 1 PM performance on May 18, for which a free will offering will be accepted.

Congratulations to our high school seniors who we will be celebrating with this Sunday at the 10:30 AM Mass. It is hard for me to believe that you were 6th graders when I first moved to Hudson. As a parish we wish you God’s blessings with your future endeavors.

Finally, God’s blessings to all our mothers. One day is far from adequate to celebrate your many gifts and all you do for your children. American poet and novelist Benjamin Alire Saenz wrote about his mother: “I wondered if my smile was as big as hers. Maybe as big. But not as beautiful.” You are a gift!!
