We are also committed to live as the Lord taught, drawing inspiration from the scriptures and strength from the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Our parish strives to nurture spiritual growth, share the gifts God has given us, and invite others into a relationship with Christ.

We are One Body, One Spirit in Christ.

Bishop Daniel

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings in the Lord! On Christmas Day 2022, I promulgated my Pastoral Letter, The Dawn from on High Shall Break Upon Us: Healing, Hope, and Joy in Jesus. The Pastoral Letter enlightens the Mission given to our Diocese by the Holy Spirit: As disciples of Jesus, we will intentionally help one another to grow closer to the healing, hope, and joy of Jesus, no matter where we are in the journey of faith.

The Pastoral Letter also identifies three Mission initiatives, each with its own emphasis. Presently, there is an emphasis on Healing. Over the past year, we have been encouraging people who are hurting to be healed through our healing ministries, sacraments, prayers, support groups, healing services, and relational reconciliations. There is convicting evidence that the Holy Spirit has been anointing so many in our diocese with the healing power we can only find in Jesus.

As we continued to heal the hurts in our personal lives, families, parishes, and the communities where we live, there is also evidence of an emerging sense of hope. As we experience the healing and hope we can only find in Jesus, we are beginning to embrace and embody the second mission emphasis of experiencing the healing and hope of Jesus in the Sacred Scriptures and Holy Eucharist (with an emphasis on Eucharistic Revival).

In my video presentation, I am calling us to continue our mission of healing (mission emphasis one), as well as leading people through the Scriptures and the Eucharist to the healing and hope (Paschal Mystery) that we can only experience in the Real Presence of Jesus (mission emphasis two).

I truly believe that the mission of bringing all people closer to the healing, hope, and joy of Jesus is entrusted to us by the Holy Spirit. I believe that the impact and fruition of blessings that we will receive as a result of bringing our mission alive will be bountiful — because in the end, our mission is not about us, but what the Holy Spirit wants to do in and though us, in the power of Jesus.

In the healing, hope and joy of Jesus,

Blessed Sacrament Parish

Immaculate Conception Church update JUNE 2023

Immaculate Conception Church Property: The Finance Council is looking for parishioners to serve on an exploratory committee for the development of the Immaculate Conception Church Property.  Please contact Bill Manney at 218-929-0755 if interested.  A meeting date will be set later this summer.

 

Immaculate Conception Update

October 26, 2022, Update on Immaculate Conception: As of today, the chandelier light fixtures have been purchased by an antiques restoration company; the cornerstone, Immaculate Conception Church name plate, and the Marian Statue from above the main entrance have been removed from the building and brought to Blessed Sacrament to be incorporated there. The baldachin has been removed and placed in storage until a new home is found. Kitchen items like the dishwasher, glassware, and the like have been purchased by local restaurants. Any remaining dishes have been sent to the Iron Range Maternity Home, Range Transitional Housing, and other places that will help people get set up in homes. All utilities have been disconnected, and Bougalis and Sons Construction has moved up the start of deconstruction to tomorrow-October 27, 2022, at which time, the bells will be removed from the tower and placed into storage. This is a somber moment, but we look to the past with gratitude for the graces offered at this site, and we look ahead with trust in God’s providence. Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Immaculate Conception update

An update on the Immaculate Conception Closure

Update as of August 5th, 2022:

Letter dated August 5th, 2022: Update on the Deconstruction of Immaculate Conception Church

Update as of October 4th, 2021:

Please click HERE for an update on the Immaculate Conception Church dated October 2021.  

Update as of November 2nd, 2020:

Update on Immaculate Conception Rectory:  After four months on the market, we closed on the sale of the rectory, receiving our original asking price.  The statue of the Blessed Mother from the south lawn will remain there until the Spring of 2021.  At that time, she will be moved over to Blessed Sacrament.  Please offer prayers for the new owner, that she may enjoy the house as much as our Parish did. We also ask for continued prayers as we discern the next steps to take with the church building.  

Update as of September 19th, 2020:

Please click here to read the decree provided by Fr. James Bissonnette in regards to the reduction of the Immaculate Conception Church.:  Decree provided by Fr. James Bissonnette in regards to Immaculate Conception.

Update as of July 28th, 2020:

The rectory has been on the market for roughly a month.  In that time, we have had one offer that fell through.  Please pray the right buyer comes along to purchase the property.  With the potential for a sale, the rectory was readied to be emptied and items moved over to the Blessed Sacrament Rectory.  We patiently await the installation of our new Bishop to be able to proceed with the status reduction of the church.

Here is an update of the Immaculate Conception since the closing on December 8th:

  • A Letter of Reduction has been submitted to the Diocese to reduce the status of the church from sacred to profane—meaning it can be used as a secular space. This reduction gives us the ability to make decisions on how to proceed with the church building. No formal response has been received.
  • Requests have been sent to local appraisers and realtors for bids on appraising the property, as well as, requesting formal presentations of how they would suggest marketing the two properties should we decide to sell.
  • Kitchen items have been inventoried and categorized by: keep for use, sell, or broken and thrown out.
  • Items from the church and sanctuary have been earmarked for the Side Lake Chapel.
  • All sacramental items have been brought over to Blessed Sacrament for safe keeping and to be used with Sunday liturgies.

As more developments happen, we will keep you informed.

 

Restoration Updates

Restoration Updates:  

If you have been on or driven by the church campus in recent weeks, you may have noticed work being done on the rectory.  We have contracted with Jerome Stanoch of Building Restoration Services to remove the chimney and repair damage done to the roof and exterior walls from years of water infiltration.  Bricks on the north wall have been removed and replaced, and the column on the balcony on the east side above the patio has been demolished and rebuilt.  It, too, had sustained much damage due to water infiltration.  The old gutters will be replaced with large new gutters capable of shedding large amounts of water away from the building.

Once the rectory work is complete, Jerome will move to work on stabilizing and securing the guttering system on Blessed Sacrament Church.  His work here should help prevent future ice damming on the roof.

This is not the first time Jerome has worked on Blessed Sacrament.  He spent the summer of 2015 restoring, cleaning, and tuck pointing our bell tower.  We thank God for his talents and expertise!
