HOLY LAND COLLECTION
Christians around the world are united in a special way during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. Our hearts, minds and prayers are especially aware of the Holy Land. On Good Friday this week, a collection will be taken to support Christians in the Holy Land and preserve the holy sites that are located there.
BISHOP’S APPEAL 2015
BISHOP’S APPEAL PROGRESS
Thank you to everyone who has already donated to the 2015 Appeal! We are seeing an increase in pledges this year—Great! Everyone is asked to make a contribution to this appeal to help the diocese carry out its mission. Holy Week is a good time to do so, and hopefully the campaign will be completed by June 30, and all Circles of Faith parishes will have reached their goal!
The next Grief Support Group will be May 17 from 6-8pm at St. James Parish Center. The topic will be “Grief after an unexpected death vs. a lengthy illness.”
FUN & FAITH 2015 “EVEREST”
Registration forms for the summer Fun & Faith program have been sent home with students and are also available HERE on the website. The first volunteer meeting will be Wed., April 15, at 6:30 pm in St. James Parish Hall. Please join us to learn about this year's program and to express your ideas so we can brainstorm about decorating and activities. Please call Patty Bekkers at 863-5247 with any questions.
EARLY BULLETIN DEADLINES
There are two early deadlines for bulletin information this week because of Easter. Articles for the March 29 bulletin are due at 9am tomorrow, Monday March 23. Articles for the April 5 (Easter) bulletin are due at 9am on Friday, March 27.
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.
MASS OR EVENT CANCELLATIONS
If a weekend Mass at any of our Circle of Faith churches is cancelled because of hazardous winter weather, please look to WFRV TV, Channel 5, the WFRV website, or listen to the radio, WCUB 980 AM or WLTU 92.1 FM for information. St. James, All Saints, and St. Mary Religious Educa-tion cancellations are announced at Den-mark Public schools whenever possible, and St. Joseph Religious Education cancel-lations are announced at Reedsville Public Schools.
Jesus told us “Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.” Every day we are presented opportunities to help someone. Every day we have the opportunity to see the face of Jesus in others and be the face of Jesus to them. Pray for the courage to stand up for those in need of our help.
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.
