Prayer Against Coronavirus
Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Physician, we ask you to guard and protect us from Coronavirus COVID-19 and all serious illness. For all that have died from it, have mercy; for those that are ill now, bring healing. For those searching for a remedy, enlighten them; for medical caregivers helping the sick, strengthen and shield them. For those working to contain the spread, grant them success; for those afraid, grant peace. May your precious blood be out defense and salvation. By your grace, may you turn the evil of disease into moments of consolation and hope. May we always fear the contagion of sin more than any illness. We abandon ourselves to your infinite mercy. Amen
Pedro de la Cruz
Weekday Mass Resume - New Secretary
On May 19, Masses will resume at St. Joachim in the main body of the church, on weekdays only.
Our goal is to keep attendance very small, so please attend sparingly for now, and maintain social distancing. If over-crowding occurs, we will require online signups. Since our hand sanitizer is limited, please bring your own, if possible; and please be aware that, despite our cleaning procedures and other precautions, any attending will still be at risk of exposure to the virus. In fact, you are urged to remain home if you are over 65, have vulnerable health, feel unwell, show any symptoms of illness – or live with someone with these conditions.
Our parish Secretary-Bookkeeper position is in transition. Barb Ferk will moving, and we thank her for 10 years of faithful, dependable service in the parish office. I’m pleased to announce that Jean Speedling will assume the role on June 1.
We will honor them both on Sunday, May 31, at 10:30 am, outdoors in the parking lot (under the carport if raining). Please stop by to greet them briefly – on foot, this time (with social distancing, of course).
For More information, please see notice below.

Catholic Spiritual Resources And Prayers During The Coronavirus Outbreak
A parish cluster in the Diocese of Winona-Rochester
St. Joachim Parish seeks to courageously proclaim the Truth and Love of Jesus Christ to all people through Word and Sacraments, and to live the Catholic Faith in loving service to our parish and community for the salvation of souls.
Diving into the beauty of the Faith has never been easier: at home, on the go, or from any internet connected device.
Discover thousands of books, audio talks, movies, documentaries, and studies... there is something for every member of the family to help them grow closer to Christ and His Church.
Abstinence from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all Fridays of Lent, by Catholics who are at least 14 years old. Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday & Good Friday, by Catholics from the 18th until the 59th birthday. Only one full meal and two smaller meals are permitted, but no solid foods between meals (liquids are excused).
To address our parish needs, we are initiating a fundraising effort which we are calling the Saint Joachim Rectory Campaign. Our minimum goal over the next 3 years is to raise money to build a new Rectory. For more information, please click on the following documents to download and view.
