The Circle of Faith

Welcome!

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!

 

CIRCLES OF FAITH EVENING OF PRAYER

The Pastoral Leaders from our Circles of Faith invite everyone to get acquainted with them through prayer. Father Kevin, Sister Gerri, Father Tom Reynebeau, Father Maurice, Deacon Cal and Deacon Dave will be sharing their prayer styles on Thursday evening, August 14 from 6:30-8:30pm at St. James Parish. Not only will you hear about different prayer methods, but there will also be an opportunity to pray together. This evening is offered instead of our usual summer retreat. Please mark your calendar and plan to join us.


FUN & FAITH 2014—ONE FOR THE RECORD BOOKS

This past week 80 children plus about 30 youth and 20 adults from our linkage of Circles had an amazing time learning about God’s love for us. The five day morning program with its’ island theme fit perfectly with the hot weather! This Sunday the children are participating at the 8am Mass at St. James, sharing some of the songs they learned. Following that, you will be able to see the spectacular parade float created by teen participants at the Denmark Lions Parade. Children who wish to walk or ride on the float should meet at McDonalds at 10:30. If you want to, bring your own candy for throwing, and don’t forget the sunscreen.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who had a part in this weeks program, especially Patty Bekkers who did a marvelous job coordinating everything. The parish hall was decorated elaborately, festive foods, creative crafts, and active games complemented the bible stories ranging from Jesus’ birth throughout his life. Watch for photos that will be posted on our website soon.


School Supply Drive Underway

The Circle of Faith Stewardship Team is spearheading a school supplies collection for families served by the Denmark Area Community Cupboard. Based on individual student school supply lists, a comprehensive list has been put together. It would be a wonderful act of stewardship if you could help by donating one or two items. The list with additional information can be found by clicking here. The collection drive will run through August 3, and there are collection boxes at each Circle of Faith church entrance to place your contribution. Thank you and God bless you!

PRAYER FOR REFUGEES
Compassionate God, make your loving presence felt to refugees, torn from home, family and everything familiar. Help them to know that you accompany them as you accompanied Mary and Joseph to their new home in Nazareth. Open our hearts to receive them as our sisters and brothers, in whose face we see your son, Jesus. Amen.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
