We were delighted to welcome Fr. Christopher Shofner and Fr. James Adams when they were assigned to our churches December, 2016. Most recently, in June, 2018 Fr. James Stiles was also appointed to our churches. He joins Fr. James Adams and Fr. Christopher Shofner in bringing the Good News of Christ to this area.

These priests, led by Father Shofner as Pastor, now serve a total of five churches! In addition to Immaculate Conception of Marysburg and the Church of the Nativity, Fr. Shofner will also be Pastor of St. Anne's of Le Sueur, St. Henry's and the Church of St. Mary in Le Center. We are deeply gladdened to have Fr. Shofner in this pastoral capacity.  If you would like to contact Fr. Shofner, he can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The Beauty of Poetry

i am a little church (no great cathedral)
far from the splendor and squalor of hurrying cities
--i do not worry if briefer days grow briefest,
i am not sorry when sun and rain make april
my life is the life of the reaper and the sower;
my prayers are prayers of earth's own clumsily striving
(finding and losing and laughing and crying) children
whose any sadness or joy is my grief or my gladness
around me surges a miracle of unceasing
birth and glory and death and resurrection:
over my sleeping self float flaming symbols
of hope, and i wake to a perfect patience of mountains
