64, Deer River, MNI value family and relationships. I am grateful for my Catholic faith and its teachings to help me live my daily life. I enjoy photography, gardening, taking walks/biking, dancing, and being outside. I enjoy working at church projects, volunteering as a taxaide, and I am game to learn and try new things.
66, Brainerd, MNI love to spend time with my 3 grandchildren, Raising a daughter alone was an experience, but, I had a wonderful family with lots of support. I enjoy playing cards and board games. Window shopping some travel. The rest after I get to know someone
33, Duluth, MNI recently moved to St. Cloud from a small town in southwest Minnesota. Now that I have had a chance to settle into my new home, I am hoping to find someone to share my life with. In my free time I like to go out with friends and when possible take some time to visit family back in the southwest part of the state.
51, Hinckley, MNI have two beautiful children - my daughter is in her 2nd year of college and I'm proud to say, even away from home, she has been involved in the "Catholic community" that is on compass. My son is in the 10th grade. He does well in school, has been involved in sports, had a summer job, and continues to be active in our youth group. My children aren't perfect, but besides for the typical teenage attitudes - I have been blessed! I enjoy attending sporting events and often volunteer with youth group and school activities. I have realized through the years though that taking time for yourself is a must. I enjoy long walks/hikes, bike rides, and snowshoeing when the snow flies. Spending time by the water or better yet, on the water and/or a beautiful sunrise/sunset brings a sense of peace and reminds me of all that I have to be thankful for. I love to read and have belonged to a book club for the last 4 years that is comprised of a group of wonderful Catholic women. Other members of our family include a Golden Retriever and two outdoor cats, who often join me on my morning "Rosary" walk - yes, that includes the cats. I know I haven't offered up a lot about myself - I always find that a bit hard, but ask any question and I will give you an answer.
30, Bruno, MNI love canoeing and other outdoor adventures.There are 8 children in my family, I am the third oldest. Every spring I enjoy making maple syrup with my family. I am fun loving and appreciate a good sense of humor.
51, Merrifield, MNI have a wide variety of interests: I like gardening (particularly landscape), being outside, being active, hiking, biking, canoeing, and camping. I enjoy a rural lifestyle but do appreciate a special day or evening every now and then attending a theater production or some other event that only a bigger city can offer. I like to be creative sometimes (I just have tried my hand at mosaics, and I'd like to do a bit more). I keep bees, mostly because I think they are fascinating more so than for the honey. But I like to give the honey to family and friends or use it in baking or cooking, and the beeswax is great for making beautiful and fragrant candles. I tap my maple trees in the spring to get a few pints of maple syrup (so much better than imitation!). I was introduced to harvesting wild rice last year and hope to do it again next year. I like learning new things and generally trying new things. I try to spend some time each day with holy scripture and believe this to be important to my relationship with and understanding of God, My family of origin and my children have been the most influential in my life. I am looking forward to seeing the people my children become and having my life enriched by new additions to their lives through other people and experiences. I also look forward to developing friendships, existing and new, and perhaps meeting someone with whom I can share life's joys and challenges.
25, Duluth, MNI am passionate about knowing God's plan for me and that includes knowing my vocation. The most influential personso in my life are my priest, some church parishioners and some of my family members I love to sleep, hangout, attended church activities and fellowship
33, Saint Paul, MNI think my friends would describe me as very determined and tenacious, balanced with being empathic and gracious. I am also an INFP on the Myers Briggs. Currently, I'm finishing up a doctorate in clinical psychology. I am passionate about the integrative work of using theology and psychology to best understand and walk alongside those who are suffering. Most of my experience so far, and much of where my heart is, has been working with trauma survivors, as well as with underserved populations. I actually just moved to northern MN from Chicagoland for my pre-doc internship this past August! I'm enjoying serving the underserved areas of the Iron Range, but also glad to be closer to my family in the Twin Cities (I visit them often). Things I enjoy: the active outdoors (biking, hiking, camping, skiing, etc); Deep thinking, yet simple living (i.e. a quiet, reflective morning with coffee, a bagel, and a book); Traveling, exploring, and impacting lives and learning from the people around me. I also love books! From scholarly research to Harry Potter. I'm also into fictional stories that ignite the imagination with symbolism that speak depth and truth into the reality of everyday life. I love redemption stories and reading about historical "desert fathers" of Christianity and their practical application to the present. While I love academics and the field of psychology, I would love to also build a family, if and when I'm led toward that, and to contribute to leaving a legacy of serving others with compassion. I am open to discovering what characteristics and strengths in another person, as well as myself, that would compliment well in building a partnership. I am drawn, however, toward people with some amount of charisma or skill in relating well with a diverse social sphere, who are intelligent, and have an understanding or emotional maturity to embody compassion toward those who suffer or feel like an outcast, etc. To show forgiveness in relationships is a goal I would love to share with a partner. I would also like to simply enjoy life together (i.e. the ability to enjoy common interests, activities, conversations, and to be able to find laughter and humor amidst challenges, etc.). My desire is to embody the phrase, "Let us love in action and in truth" (from 1 John 3:18). Let me know if this describes similar values you have and/or if you have any questions. Thanks!
32, Nisswa, MNI'm sorry if this is long... I like to write and I like to be open, so it's hard to keep it short! I'm a passionate person: passionate about my faith, my family, my relationships, and life. If asked, my family and friends would say I'm a very caring, sensitive, and pretty happy person. Sometimes I can be shy and reserved, but pretty outgoing once I've warmed up. I'm very active, like to keep moving and doing and learning, whether it be things around the house, yard work, walking, biking, running (or trying to!). But when it's time to settle, I can easily get sucked into a movie or a good TV show, or sitting on a dock with a line in the water. I'm a pretty determined person, usually pretty motivated. I love to laugh! I love to have fun, tell stories, and be myself. My family is very near and dear to me. I live close to all of them except one brother, who is a priest assigned to a parish about 3 hours away. We're a very close knit, very loving, and very generous family. I hope that God blesses me with the chance to share a life with someone the way that my parents and family do. One thing that's been very influential in my life is my mission to Ukraine. In 2013 I left my job and spent 14 months on mission in Ukraine, serving as a presence of compassion for the sick, the poor, and the socially isolated. This was a "school of love" as they say, learning to love and care about people in desperate situations. I still live parts of my mission in my every day life, in my heart and in my actions.
61, Grand Rapids, MNI love to laugh, to be active and to have fun! I enjoy working out, being with friends, relaxing at home after a busy week of teaching children and I thank God for all that He blesses me with. I love to garden, be outside, work hard, swim, read, sew, be with my grandchildren and kids, watch sports...especially hockey, love good movies and would like to meet someone who likes to cook, spend quiet time watching a good movie with a glass of wine or a good beer on the weekend, be outside near water or on water. I would like a kind, well-rounded, Catholic man who is financially stable and who has been or who is a teacher, medical person, in law enforcement or who has worked on behalf of others as I have for 39 years. i'd like to vacation someone warm for some time each winter, yet experience all four seasons in Minnesota. My expectations are high and I do not want someone who is a recovering alcoholic or who drinks a lot! I expect respect, humor, kindness, sharing, honesty and a positive attitude. I take good care of myself and want to spend time with someone who does the same. I look forward to being active and having special times with someone who is seeking the same. This person must understand my love for my children and grandchildren. I am educated, well-rounded, high energy and hard working and that is who I choose to spend my time with.
47, Byron, MNI am passionate about God . I am influenced greatly by loving, compassionate people. I like walking in the park, watching movies, and listening to music.
54, Baxter, MNI grew up singing lirugically. Hope to make it to the heavenly choir. I know that is really asking for a lot. My 12th birthday wish as I was blowing out my candles was to get to heaven. Been working toward that, with a few setbacks, all of my life. considered being a nun, had six beautiful babies instead.
