Weekend Mass Schedule Update
Bishop Kettler has reassigned Fr. Doug to full time vocation work and ministry at Cathedral High School. Fr. Doug’s last weekend with us is June 26/27, 2021. Due to four priests retiring and possibly just one priestly ordination this year, Bishop Kettler has not assigned a sacramental minister to our One in Christ Area Catholic Community. After prayer and discussion, Fr. Tom and Fr. Ron have decided they will preside at our seven weekend Masses. This will mean a change in our weekend Mass Schedule.
Each parish will have a farewell for Fr. Doug on his last scheduled visit ---- Sacred Heart, June 12/13; St. Stephen and Mayhew Lake, June 19/20; and St. Francis Xavier, June 26/27. Watch the bulletin for more information.
New Mass Schedule effective July 1, 2021:
After reviewing this past year and in light of Fr. Doug’s reassignment, beginning the weekend of July 3/4 our Mass schedule will be:
Saturday evenings: Sunday Mornings:
5:00pm Sauk Rapids 8:15am Mayhew Lake
5:00pm Sartell 9:00am Sauk Rapids
7:00pm St. Stephen 9:30am Sartell
10:00am St. Stephen
This schedule requires Fr. Ron or Fr. Tom to preside at 3 to 4 Masses each weekend. The schedule will be reviewed throughout the year. Additional changes to the Mass schedule may require securing retired priests.
