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! 

Bereavement Ministry

All those who are grieving the loss of a loved one are invited to a Circle of Faith Grief Support Group this Sunday, January 20 at 12:00 noon at St. James Parish Center. The topic will be “The Mourner’s Bill of Rights.” This presentation is intended to empower you to heal and to decide how others can and cannot help. This is not to discourage you from reaching out to others, but rather assist you in distinguishing useful responses from hurtful ones. The Group Facilitator is Tom Bekkers, an Advanced Practice Social Worker with over 25 years of experience in professional counseling related to grief and loss. You may contact him at (920) 660-8066 with any questions. A social will follow the discussion.


RESPECT LIFE INITIATIVES

This week we observe the anniversary of the Roe V Wade Supreme Court decision. Did you know that our diocesan office of Catholic Charities provides help to birth parents facing unplanned pregnancies with support and guidance, allowing for dignified and compassionate support to women who have courageously chosen life. Catholic Charities also provides post-abortion services to women seeking healing and forgiveness through Project Rachel. They are able to do all this because of your generous support of the Bishop’s Appeal.

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

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
