On behalf of the good people of Pax Christi Parish, I'd like to welcome you to our website and our faith community. I am the pastor, Fr. Joe Fogal who shares the mission of Jesus with a talented and caring staff. Our parish has a history of social justice ministry and outreach to the poor. Our liturgies strive to proclaim the Word and sing loud the praise of God. We are especially blessed by our faith formation, youth and young adult ministry which attract many to our programs. We are also fortunate to be part of the Rochester Area Catholic Schools K-12 system. Please browse our site and see what we have to offer you. I'd like to invite you to pray, sing and celebrate with us and experience Christ alive in this community and in your life. Thanks for checking us out! Fr. Joe
This weekend is the official launch of the Annual Diocesan Catholic Ministries Appeal [formerly called the Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA).] A packet will arrive in each parishioner's home in the coming days. Please review the materials and consider a donation to the Appeal. Our parish goal is $85,760. Every dollar raised above our goal comes back to our parish to do even more good here at the parish. Please fill out the donation card and bring to Mass in the coming weeks or mail to us in the envelope provided. Visit www.catholicfsmn.org to donate online and for more information. Also visit this YOUTUBE video for more insight into this appeal.
Now that Christmas Day has passed, the presents have been opened, and the feast has been prepared (and eaten!), it's time to take down the Christmas tree, pack up the decorations, and start dreaming about next Christmas, right? No! Christmas has only just begun.
In the church calendar Christmas Day is only the beginning. In an earlier time Christmas lasted for 12 days-a tradition from which we get the famous Christmas song. Even though our American culture quickly moves on to the next holiday, our Catholic tradition has much to offer in order to help us celebrate the season of Christmas. Click Here for a few suggestions for you and your family to make the Christmas season a more complete experience and deepen your Catholic identity.
