Due to a significant increase in Covid-19 cases in the town of Buffalo Center,  St. Patrick, Buffalo Center will not be having Mass July 4th or July 11th. 


Welcome to the Archangels Catholic Cluster!


The Catholic Church has always encouraged us to pray for our countries and their leaders.  Please pray especially this year for the USA as the “American Way of Life” is under attack by forces that are trying to destroy it, like Communism, as Mary predicted at Fatima.  PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY!!!

Next weekend on July 12, 2020, Fr. Paul and I will be celebrating our last Sunday liturgies here in the Cluster as your Sacramental Priest and Pastor. There will be a farewell celebration for me, Fr. Jim, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM in the basement of St. Wenceslaus Parish in Duncan and from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the Community Center also in Duncan for Fr. Paul. These celebrations are on the same date and town, just at different times and places, so parishioners can choose to attend both or just one celebration with ease. You are welcome and encouraged to attend as you will, to say goodbye to us.  

Also, I want to thank everyone who has already or will be sending us cards, gifts, money, etc. for our farewells.  These are greatly appreciated.  I can’t send individual thank-you notes to each family, so I want to thank all of you here in the bulletin and assure everyone that you will continue to be in my prayers as I enter into retirement.
