The Vine and Branches Area Faith Community is part of the New Ulm Diocese in southern Minnesota. It consists of the Parishes of St. Raphael, in Springfield, St. Joseph in Lamberton and the Oratory of St. Thomas in Sanborn. The Vine and Branches AFC is ministered by Father Philip Schotzko and Pastoral Associate Sister Shirley Steins. Welcome.
The Mission of the Vine & Branches Area Faith Community empowered by the Holy Spirit is to bear fruit that will last as Jesus commanded: by celebrating and proclaiming our Catholic faith as disciples of Jesus using our god-given gifts; by reaching out to and welcoming all people; and by centering our lives on the Eucharist, sacraments, scripture, service and teaching of the Church.
