The Circle of Faith
A warm and blessed welcome to the Circle of Faith Catholic Community website! Here you'll find information about our linkage, our parishes, our history, our schedules, and our ministries... Even the bulletins and newsletters, but there's so much more! We want this website to help us share our faith with each other in many ways. May God bless you! Please visit us often!
CONGRATULATIONS SISTER CAROLINE!
Sister Caroline Sullivan of the Sinsinawa Dominicans is celebrating her 50th jubilee of religious life this summer. She has been a blessing to the Denmark area since founding The Bridge-Between Retreat Center in 1987. We wish you God’s love and peace in your future ministry.
ANNUAL SEMINARIAN COLLECTION
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the annual diocesan Seminarian Collection. In just one decade, we have seen 20 priests ordained who now serve the church. When you receive the letter from Bishop Ricken requesting your help, please respond with a generous contribution of $25, $100, $250, $500 or more. Every offering makes a difference. Our seminarians are our Hope for the Future; Let us Help them Today. To make an online gift, visit http://www.catholicfoundationgb.org/seminarian-collection/.
SCHOOL SUPPLY PROJECT
A School Supply Drive for the Denmark Community Cupboard has begun. You can help a less fortunate family send their children back to school this fall by donating an article or two that they need to start the year off properly equipped. All Circles of Faith Parishes are collecting through next Sunday, August 2 to allow time for distribution at the pantry. A listing of needed supplies can be found HERE on our website. Look for Stewardship under the Linked Ministries tab. Gift cards or monetary donations are also appreciated.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION SCHEDULE
All Saints 1st Wednesday, 1pm-6pm
The Sacrament of Penance is offered on Saturday afternoons from 3:00 until 3:45pm at All Saints Church, and on the second and fourth Saturday evening from 6:30 until 7:00pm at St. James Church. We hope you will come and take advantage of the special graces from this sacrament.
Stewards Are Not Greedy
“Each day the people are to go out and gather their daily portion; thus will I test them, to see whether they follow my instructions or not.” (EXODUS 16:4B)
When the Israelites gathered more than their daily portion of manna, the surplus became wormy and rotten.
In the same way today, God calls His Stewards to be content with a fair portion and to be willing to share the rest.
REPORTING SEXUAL ABUSE
If you know of an incident of sexual abuse of a person who is now under the age of 18 by a priest, deacon, employee or volunteer, please immediately call the civil authorities and then the diocese. If the person was abused as a minor but is now an adult, please call Jayne Stefanic, Diocesan Assistance Coordinator, at 920-272-8174, or toll free at 1-877-270-8184.
We always encourage you to report the incident to civil authorities.
YOU MATTER TO US — THERE IS HOPE
We sincerely hope that you feel at home in our Circle Churches and that you are among friends.
Please let us know if we can serve you in any way.
