Solemnity of the Assumption in the New World: on the St. Croix (Holy Cross) River...




Who says the good old days are over?

Today was a blast and gosh are we ever proud of these fine altar servers!

Just this afternoon with lots of kids and families in the resort town of Bayport (on the St. Croix River) we had a lovely procession through the neighborhood in honor of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and afterwards there was a stellar bbq and games with prizes for kids. Everybody of all ages had a great time and this is how it's done, folks!

The parish there is the Church of St. Charles Borromeo and the pastor there is one guy who gets it right - Fr. Randal Kasel.

Thank you, Fr. Randal for your holiness and outstanding leadership and immense generosity! And many thanks to everybody for a wonderful day of Catholic spirituality and fellowship!
