The Two Rivers Catholic Community is a cluster of parishes in central Minnesota consisting of All Saints parish in Holdingford, Immaculate Conception in St. Anna, and St. Columbkille Church in St. Wendel. The community is called “Two Rivers Catholic Community” because our communities are connected to the “Two Rivers” name: Holdingford is located near the ford of the South Two River, St. Anna is located near the Two Rivers lake, and St. Wendel is just south of Two Rivers Road.
God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life.Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1
