Encountering Christ Together

About Us

Welcome to the Heart of Jesus Area Faith Community consisting of three parish communities: Holy Redeemer Parish in Renville, St. Aloysius Parish in Olivia, and St. Mary’s Parish in Bird Island. Our three parishes are in the heart of the Diocese of New Ulm. As pastor of the three parishes I want to welcome you to our website and to our parishes. I invite you to come to one of our weekend Masses to worship with us. If you are new to the area and would like more information about any of our parishes, please contact one of our parishes.

Fr. Joe Steinbeisser, Pastor
