Bridge Community Pantry

We are looking for people to commit to spending a scheduled hour a week with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament at Adoration.  Adoration is held on:


Mondays: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Tuesdays: 9:30am – Wednesdays at 5:00 pm

Thursdays: 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

Fridays: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm


Specific hours we need a second guardian for are: 

Tuesdays at 4pm

Wednesdays at 12pm (December 1st, 22nd, 29th)

Wednesdays at 2pm (December 8th, 22nd, 29th)

Wednesdays at 4pm

As an “Adoration Guardian,” you can sign up for any hour with Jesus. We are trying to find 2 people per hour.  We ask that you come a few minutes before your hour starts, and stay with Jesus the entirety of the hour. Please prayerfully consider giving Jesus an hour of your week in Adoration. If you are interested, please call Debbie at 218-298-4461 or Michael at 346-4240.

A Message From a 100.3 FM Listener

A listener to our local Catholic radio station recently described the station as a “lifeline” and the radio programming as providing “so much good information about our faith from good sources.  It gives me strength and hope, and it does the same for so many others who I listen to when they call in to the programs that take live callers.” If you haven’t yet discovered 100.3 FM, tune in to the programming which runs 24/7. If you are already a listener, encourage your friends and family to share in this resource for personal faith enrichment and tool for evangelization.
