Welcome to Lakes Catholic Evangelization  & Faith Formation

We are a cluster of parishes in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes area. We strive to be faithful disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ within the Universal Catholic Church, which He Himself established. While we are individual parishes, with their own identity and personality, we work together in forming disciples of Jesus within our combined Faith Formation and Evangelization programs. We welcome you to join us for worship, and invite you to explore our website, learning more about the many things we do, and how you can be a part of them!

Click here for the FUSE Schedule

FUSE is for any adult in the Brainerd Lakes area - from the person who wishes to potentially enter the Church and is interested in what being Catholic really means, to the "Cradle Catholic" who desires to dive deeper into the faith and learn more about what our faith really means. FUSE is engaging, truthful, exciting, and at times even surprising!

Participants who are starting for the first time with FUSE will enter into Phase I, or Ignite. You will join many others in this journey of exploring and experiencing the realities of the Catholic Faith.

FUSE seeks to create a Missionary conversion so that all participants will come to know who they are in Christ Jesus and be empowered, enabled, and entrusted to become Christ's disciples.

Registration and a catered dinner are free! Dinner/Social goes from 6:00-6:45pm each Tuesday, with the main teaching and discussion session starting officially at 6:45pm, going until 8:15pm.

Any questions about FUSE? Please contact Dan Johnson @ 218-829-1340, ext. 2923.
