Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
At the request of Pope Francis, on this Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, a solemn Act of Consecration of humanity, Russia, and Ukraine in particular, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is being conducted around the world today. At the Cathedral of Christ the King, this consecration is being held in the context of holy Mass on March 25 at 11:00 am, presided by our Bishop James Powers.
Congratulations to the parishioners of St. Anthony in Lake Nebagamon on the dedication of their new church! You can watch the live stream of the dedication here. The new church building along with the parish hall that was completed in 2006 will provide parishioners, friends and visitors a beautiful spiritual home for many years to come.
On June 6, 2021 Bishop James P. Powers is lifting the dispensation which excused all of the faithful of the Diocese of Superior from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation. We will begin to modify some of the current policies regarding our liturgical celebrations and parish activities.
