Bemidji Pioneer: Out of the ashes: Thousands already raised to rebuild St. Mary's Mission Church

RED LAKE—The wreckage of St. Mary's Mission Church hadn't yet cooled when Rev. Jerry Rogers received the first donation to be put toward the construction of a new place of worship.

"The very foundation of the building fund is $5, which an elder gave us the afternoon of the fire," Rogers said, three months after the historic Red Lake church burned to the ground in an overnight fire. "She said, 'Father, this is all I have. I want you to use it to build the new church.'"
