Will it really be your
Best Advent Ever?
That is entirely up
to you. Advent, at its heart, is about getting ready to encounter Jesus at
Christmas. Opening your heart to him. Getting to know him. Becoming a better
husband or wife, father or mother, son or daughter, friend, etc. This program
is a tool to help you do that.
Beginning on the first Sunday of Advent (November 29) and continuing every day
through December 23, Dynamic Catholic will email you simple yet powerful
messages from Matthew Kelly, America’s bestselling Catholic author, and other
leading Catholic voices of our time that will help you encounter God’s
incredible mercy. An ideal response to Pope Francis’ invitation to celebrate
the Year of Mercy,
Best Advent Ever: Rediscover Mercy can transform your life,
relationships, work, and ability to genuinely embrace and experience life.
Don’t miss the opportunity to make this your best Advent ever. Sign up now!
It’s simple, and the only cost is your commitment to live better each day this Advent. Are you ready?

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!
