|Welcome to the webpage for Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Easton), St. John the Baptist (Minnesota Lake), and St. Casimir (Wells). There is a great faith in these communities that go back 100+ years. These parishes, these faith communities, provided generations of Catholics with love, peace, and stability through the Mass and the Sacraments during many good years and bad years. If you are new to the area or just visiting, we would enjoy having you come visit us and introduce yourself. If there is any way we can serve you, hopefully this web page is a good start. If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. May the grace and mercy of God fill your hearts and lives.|

An Update from the Classroom...
The kindergarten and first grade classes at St. Casimir’s School are finding God’s love can be found all around them. Through every Religion that is covered, they learn that in all things “God is Good”! Throughout this year, they are learning, growing, sharing, and celebrating the “Goodness of God”! These students have so much fun sharing stories with each other how Jesus touches their lives.
The most wonderful time in the lives of the SCS second graders is fast approaching, as they prepare to welcome Jesus in the Eucharist! They have already celebrated their First Reconciliation, and their hearts are excited to hold a piece of heaven in their hand as they receive Jesus as their best friend on Sunday, April 25th.
The second and third graders continue to learn of the many different areas of our Catholic faith: the importance of prayer, the saints, sacraments, Stations of the Cross, Mass, the importance of the Rosary, the Brown Scapular and so much more. The students are also learning about their faith through the church building of St. Casimir Parish. With Arnie Stenzel as their guide, they visited the church to explore and understand the symbolism of such items as the stained glass windows, vestments, host maker, monstrance and tabernacle. Their many, many questions showed just how eager their hearts and minds are to learn! And, just as Jesus did, they continue to grow in age, grace, and wisdom!
