St. Nicholas Catholic Church, Carver, MN


January 9 Update from Deacon Jim


St. Nicholas Parishioners,

The Archbishop asked for our input regarding the future of St. Nicholas Catholic Church and parish. I am pleased to tell you that on Wednesday, Dec 30, I delivered our recommendation to the Archbishop.  

We followed a process where together we prayed, worshipped, and discerned how best to fulfill the request made of us. Using U.S. Mail, we invited input from all the “Registered and Active” households. We also posted the survey invitation in the bulletin, on the parish webpage, and Facebook page. And lastly, we put out yard signs directing people to the web page and used a QR Code for easy access.  These efforts resulted in receiving input from more than 160 households.  A dedicated group of more than 20 parishioners met multiple times to help interpret the data and form the recommendation.

If you wish to see the full recommendation, 111 pages in seven sections, please contact me to arrange a date & time to meet in the parish office. Once we hear from the Archbishop, I will be sure to share that with you.

St. Nicholas continues to operate with Fr. Tollefson as the Parochial Administrator and me as the Parish Life Administrator.  I ask for your continuing prayers and support for St. Nicholas Parish.  If there is anything that I can do for you, please contact me at (612) 405-0116 or deacon.jim.bauhs@gmail.com.

Happy New Year!

Deacon Jim
