HOLY FAMILY AND OUR LADY OF FATIMA CHURCHES
Our parishes are a faith community located in the beautiful northern Minnesota Lakes Region in Aitkin County. We are within the Duluth, MN Diocese (about 60 miles west of Duluth), the gateway to the great “up north” – and we love having visitors!
If you visit our area, please come and join us in worship - maybe you’ll even be there on a day when we have fresh coffee and caramel rolls after Mass!
During the winter months many of our parishioners “fly” South for the warmer climate – but many of us stay to enjoy our glorious winter beauty and fun in the snow sports. During summer months our numbers “swell” again as the “Snowbirds” return, along with the many friends and travelers to our beautiful and peaceful land of lakes and pines.
The goal of the site is to help you learn more about us, our faith, and the McGregor and McGrath areas.
Please visit us often to view updates!
