Sacred Heart of Dent and St. Lawrence of Rush Lake have welcomed a new priest to the parishes: Fr. Dan Walz.

On Tuesday evening, July 15, Fr. Don Wagner of St. Ann's of Wadena inducted Walz into St. Lawrence and Sacred Heart at Dent. Three other parishes were represented, with Fr. Tim Bernauer and 70-75 members of his parishes.


He will continue being the pastor of St. Joseph of Bertha and St. Edwards of Henning.

When asked how he was going to be able to take care of four parishes his response is how are "we" going to take care of four parishes. It will take all of the congregations, working together, to make it all work.

Walz is a native of Bertha. He grew up on a hobby farm, loves the outdoors, enjoys fishing and enjoys spending time with his two brothers and two sisters and their families.

The Vikings are his favorite football team.

Fr. enjoys reading about the lives of our Saints and has a heartfelt devotion to the blessed Virgin Mary.
