Assumption Catholic Church
in Eden Valley, MN
TOTUS TUUS (Totally Yours) was in Eden Valley July 16-22! Totus Tuus was a diocesan catechetical summer youth program whereby Alex, Clinton, Rose, and Hannah traveled throughout the summer proclaiming the Gospel. There were 40 7th-12th grade students who attended at least one evening. There were 29 1st-6th graders who attended at least one day. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the parents and guardians who transported the children. THANK YOU to the Fantastic Totus Tuus team!!!! Thank you to everyone that volunteered to help with the Totus Tuus program this past week. 
WIND DAMAGE: The strong winds this past week blew a roof cover off of the steeple. With a great deal of patience and a lot of help, the cover was repaired, lifted to the top using ropes, and then fastened on (better than before).
