Church of St. Mary (Steeple on Cover) – Melrose Built in 1898/99 - it’s one of the largest churches in the diocese. Originally built as the Church of St. Boniface, for German immigrants, later merged with the Church of St. Patrick in 1958. The 1st words of its pastor were “The Blessed Virgin Mary will keep the peace between the Germans and the Irish”.

Heritage-Hjemkomst Interpretive Center – Moorhead Hosts a variety of different traveling exhibits. In addition, there is a newly constructed replica of a Norwegian Stave Church dating back to the 1100’s.

Isanti County Historical Society – Cambridge Isanti Counties’ famous little church on the prairie is St. John’s German Lutheran Church. Built in 1882, is significant in history for its German association. No electricity; just kerosene lamps, a shelter for the visiting pastor’s horse and services said in their native German language. Explore the cemetery next door, with stones dating back to the 1800’s.

Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes - Two Inlets, MN Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes – Two Inlets

In 1959, construction of the Grotto began by Father Joseph Moylan after a trip to the Grotto of our Lady of Lourdes in France. Local parishioners of St. Mary’s Catholic Church offered their talents and financial assistance to see the project through. The beautiful life-size statues of Our Lady of Lourdes and Bernadette, at the Grotto, made of blanco carrara marble, are the work of a renowned Italian sculptor. The Stations of the Cross are also part of the Grotto. In 1981 he expanded the grotto to include a Rosary Shrine, thus the large Rosary designed for Living Rosary devotions. Located next to the Grotto is St. Mary’s Catholic Church, where Father Joseph Moylan was the pastor. A turn of events sent him to other work at his congregation’s Provincial House in New Mexico before the Grotto was completed, and he subsequently passed away in 1985 without ever seeing his hearts work completed.
