Father Timothy Lange, Pastor
Welcome to Our St. Agnes and Sacred Heart Website.
Office Phone: 218-547-1054
Office Hours: Mon-Thurs 8:30 am to 12:00 Noon
We, the parishioners of St. Agnes and Sacred Heart, are inspired by the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Eucharist. We strive to use our time, talents and resources to become a real presence of Christ. Our mission is to reach people for God, to welcome them into His Holy Church and to lovingly strengthen and support them as we journey toward our eternal home.
Upcoming Series for adult faith formation: ALPHA! So often we all encounter situations or people who need to hear about the hope and healing found in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, but we don’t know what to say or how to say it. So often I hear as a priest (and my own experience too) of the grief and sorrow over friends and family members who have le# the faith, and we don’t know how to reach them. And sometimes we all feel like we don’t know Jesus very well ourselves, or like our relationship with him is about checking things oﬀ on a “to-do list” for Sundays. Or, to raise the urgency, think about our parishes: how many people will be in the pews in 20 years? Simply due to age, maybe 20% of those who are there now, on a good day? A presenter at our Duluth diocese clergy conference two years ago proposed that we have about 10 years le# in our culture to help make the Catholic faith relevant again for people of all ages who have le# the Church, or to learn how to evangelize in our current context. The opportunity is now! I invite everyone in our parishes 18 and older to start on a journey this summer, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey or how old you might be. The journey is called “Alpha,” an 11-week series on Wednesday evenings with a Friday Saturday mini-retreat in late July or early August. June 6th will be our ﬁrst gathering, and each Alpha evening will have food, a video-based talk on the Christian faith, and small group discussions. “Alpha” is the ﬁrst letter of the Greek alphabet, and the idea is that the Alpha experience is the ﬁrst “letter” in the ABC’s of Christianity—the very basics of the Christian faith that fosters a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ. In the 20 years since Alpha started in Brampton, England, over 29 million people have experienced the series, in 169 countries, and in over 100 diﬀerent languages. While Alpha isn’t “exclusively Catholic,” we can use it as Catholics in a prudent way. And like many things—there are “big wig” names in the Catholic Church who both support Alpha, and those who do not. But the “proof is in the pudding” as they say—Alpha has been incredibly fruitful, and I’m excited to begin the journey with you all. Mark your calendars for 6pm Wednesday evenings—we will take July 4th and July 11th oﬀ, and ﬁnish on August 29th! More information to come!
