Email News Alerts

St. Henry's Catholic Church in Perham and Holy Cross Church in Butler have welcomed a new priest, Father Matt Kuhn.

In an interview last week, Kuhn said, "I was happy to accept" the new assignment.


He had always hoped to end up in the lakes area, but said it was a pleasant surprise to be placed in Perham for his first assignment.

Kuhn was ordained in June 2010. Since then, he has served as a parochial vicar, or assistant priest, at churches in the St. Cloud area.
