Staff Member: Kathy Binsfeld
Hello everyone, I am Kathy Binsfeld and I am the Music Director for St. Francis. My husband, Gary, and I are excited to be part of St. Francis music ministry. I have been a Church music director in the Duluth Diocese for a number of years. We have 5 children and 2 grandchildren whom we think are amazing. We live in Baxter, Gary is retired and I am obviously semi-retired. I graduated from St Ben’s with an emphasis on Music Liturgy. I started playing for Mass when I was 16, taking lessons from a Sister who had me play for Mass as part of my lessons. Throughout the years I have developed a love for God, the Liturgies and their seasons. I love helping others discover and develop their talents and to help experience how music can be a tool to connect our hearts with God’s Word and His Sacraments. I can’t wait to get started to be part of their group. I want to encourage you to come and check us out as we grow in music, faith & community. Serving at Mass is amazing! Seriously, it is an honor and a privilege to serve at Mass, and along with this fun group, it’s a win-win! Scripture instructs us throughout the Bible to sing for Joy to the Lord, Ps: 105:2 “My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you.” We should all want a part of this joy. Gary and I are looking forward to meeting you, serving one another, Fr. Tony and Fr. Beau and the staff. With much love and blessings.
