We try to faithfully follow God's Commandments and the Church's teaching in our worship and in our daily lives.
St. Benedict's Church was built in White Earth in 1939, replacing the church that was at the Mission site built in 1881. Father Justin Luetmer, O.S.B. was the pastor at that time and the church was built with the help of a donation from his mother who was a widow. The objective was to provide a more convenient location for the Indian parishioners to worship. The same church is still being used today. St. Benedict was served by Benedictine priests until 1983. Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate currently serve the parish today with Father Walter Butor, O.M.I. as the current pastor. We are a welcoming community and encourage people to visit.
