|Welcome to the webpage for Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Easton), St. John the Baptist (Minnesota Lake), and St. Casimir (Wells). I, Father Andrew Vogel, am blessed to be the pastor of these three southern Minnesota parishes. There is a great faith in these communities that go back 100+ years. These parishes, these faith communities, provided generations of Catholics with love, peace, and stability through the Mass and the Sacraments during many good years and bad years. If you are new to the area or just visiting, we would enjoy having you come visit us and introduce yourself. If there is any way we can serve you, hopefully this web page is a good start. If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. May the grace and mercy of God fill your hearts and lives.|
