Congratulations to the 5 Students from St. Anne’s that were confirmed on Tuesday evening, October 27th at St. Nicholas Church.
Congratulations to Stacy Schiefelbein on her winning design for the Holy Saints Logo.
William and Jonny Serbus became the 2nd and 3rd Boy Scouts in Kimball Troop 357 history to
receive the Ad Altare Dei Religious Emblem.
The boys started working on this program back in March, when the Covid-19 pandemic
cancelled religion classes at St. Anne’s Church. Wanting to keep a religion program
throughout the school year, the boys decided to partake in this program, working on it every
Sunday in lieu of religion class. The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei ( to the altar of God) program is to help Catholic Youth of the Roman Rite develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community. The program is organized in chapters based on the seven sacraments. The seven Sacraments are a primary means toward spiritual growth. The most important aspect of the program is that the Scout grows in his spiritual experience of his relationship to God and the church.
William and Jonny completed and passed their board of review on Sept. 8, 2020. Since William
and Jonny earned this Religious Emblem they are also entitled to wear a Boy Scouts of America
Religious Knot over their left pocket. The Ad Altare Dei was presented to the boys on Sunday,
Oct. 4, 2020 with a Mass with Bishop Kettler at St. Augustine Church in St. Cloud. Bishop
Kettler was thrilled to do this special Mass for the Scouts as he was an Eagle Scout 63 years
ago. Four scouts in total earned this emblem, William, Jonny and only two others from the
This is the 2nd religious emblem the boys had earned, as they had previously earned their
Parvuli Dei (Children of God) emblem as Cub Scouts.
William and Jonny are active members and altar boys of St. Anne’s Catholic Church.
They are the children of Matt and Carly Serbus.

Here are some pictures of the progress of the Bell Tower.
Born of a noble family, tradition says St. Roch was miraculously born with a red cross on his breast. St. Roch gave all of his fortune to the poor at age 20 after his parents died. In 1315, he assisted plague victims in several Italian cities, miraculously curing people with the sign of the cross. While helping the sick, he also contracted the disease. However, the saint survived after a dog helped him in the forest. The dog brought him food and licked his wounds. He was later mistaken for a spy and spent the rest of his life in prison. According to tradition, an angel appeared in St. Roch’s cell after his death. The angel said that those who invoked his intercession would be cured of the plague.
Prayer to St. Roch
O Blessed Saint Roch,
Patron of the sick,
Have pity on those
Who lie upon a bed of suffering.
Your power was so great
When you were in this world,
That by the sign of the Cross,
Many were healed of their diseases.
Now that you are in heaven,
Your power is not less.
Offer, then, to God
Our sighs and tears
And obtain for us that health we seek
Through Christ our Lord
(Reapeat the above 3 times)
