The day of Sunset Fest dawned bright and clear on August 24 as our swimmers dove into Lake Bavaria for our All Saints Swim honoring our departed loved ones. From there the brisk breeze took us into a glorious evening for our outdoor Mass and all of the “Western Roundup” festivities that go into Sunset Fest: cowboys and horses, great food, kid’s games, a pie eating contest, the Lucky 13 Raffle and of course bingo. The sun set on a fabulous day. Visit our Facebook page to see all of the pictures that captured this great parish celebration.
The evening of August 18 saw fabulous performances at St. Victoria’s Third Annual “St. Victoria’s Got Talent” Show. You name it, we had it: Magicians, Musicians, Karate, Poets, the list goes on and on… Check out the fun pictures on our Facebook page!
At the end of July six youth from St. Victoria spent a week in South Dakota at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. While there they grew closer to God and the people served by cleaning their school, painting, landscaping and running the local “Kids Club”. They met great people, listened to inspiring speakers and took in some of the beautiful sights of the area. Be sure to check the pictures of the trip on our Facebook page!
“Rediscover” is a new outreach evangelization and catechesis initiative of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Archbishop Nienstedt shares that converting hearts begins with “encountering the person of Jesus Christ — it has to be that personal relationship. So it’s not just a question of getting people into the doors of the church. We have to get them to fall in love with Christ.” A series of opportunities will follow over the next several months, including book clubs, a faith speakers series and an archdiocesan-wide celebration of the Catholic faith. Audio and Video from the speakers series will be posted online. Visit the Rediscover website to learn more and also read this article in The Catholic Spirit.
The companion Rediscover Catholicism books were made available to all homes in the parish at Christmas. Author Matthew Kelly offers a spiritual guide to living with passion and purpose and shows how we can become “the best version of ourselves” through the beauty of Catholicism. There are extra copies available–stop by the church to pick up yours and begin your journey of rediscovery.
