Announcement From Bishop Felton

"Traditionally, at this time of the year, I as the bishop announce any changes in priest assignments.
At this time, I am announcing to you that Father David Forsman will become the new pastor of Immaculate Heart parish in Crosslake and St. Emily's parish in Emily, effective July 13, 2022.
I am very grateful for the last eleven years that Father David has served as pastor of St. James in Aitkin and Holy Family Church in McGregor. Father David had indicated to me at the beginning of this year that, if necessary, he was open to moving to another parish. As such, I did have a need for him to be the pastor of Immaculate Heart parish in Crosslake and St. Emily's parish in Emily.
Please reach out and welcome Fr. Forsman with your support and love."

Announcement From Bishop Felton

Dear Parishioners and Friends of the Parish,


Blessings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. 


I am happy to announce that Fr. Dale Nau will be appointed as the administrator of St. Emily's and Immaculate Heart parishes, effective December 6, 2021. Fr. Dale will serve in this capacity until a pastor is assigned to your parish. He will live at the rectory and attend to the sacramental and administrative needs of the parish staff and parishioners. Fr. Dale himself asked to be the administrator of these parishes because of his care and love for your parish. He will provide a consistent priestly presence and stability for you as parishioners.  


From now until December 6, I am working with your parish leadership to make sure that parish services and activities continue with the least amount of disruption.  


I appreciate your patience during this interim time. I am also very thankful for your parish staff and the priests who have gone the extra mile in taking care of your pastoral needs. 


May God bless you and your parish community, 

Bishop Daniel J. Felton
