He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” – Mark 16:15

Recently our Holy Angels Twinning Mission transferred to a U.S. based mission, Mary Mother of God Mission Society whose national office is in Modesto, CA.   Holy Angels has become a sister parish through this mission society to Vladivostok, Russia.

On October 27 and 28, The Mary Mother of God Mission Society is sending Father Steven Bauer to share his experiences in Vladivostok, Russia.  Father Bauer will be speaking at all weekend Masses, as well as celebrating two of these weekend Masses.  Father Bauer, a diocesan priest in Chicago, has been to Vladivostok as the spiritual advisor for two different FOCUS teams and serves as a board member for Mary Mother of God Mission Society.

Saturday, October 27, the parish will have a “Meet and Greet” carry-in dinner in the school cafeteria at 6:30 p.m.  More information will be provided on flyers at the church doors.  Please plan to attend and welcome Father Bauer.


October is Mission Month; the month we pray and make sacrifices called spiritual bouquets for our sister parish.  Please complete the forms that can be found in the pews throughout the month of October and place in the decorated boxes that are located at the doors of church.  Please pray and sacrifice for our sister parish in Vladivostok, Russia.
