WOMEN’S CEW RETREAT
Our Circles of Faith Women’s Christian Experience Weekend will be March 13, 14, and 15 at All Saints Parish. The retreat begins at 7pm Friday and continues through 4:30pm Sunday. CEW is an adult renewal for those 18 years or older that includes talks, discussion, prayer, and Mass. Brochures are at the entrances of our churches, or go to www.denmarkareacew.com, or call Joyce Cisler at(920) 905-1912.
ECUMENICAL LENTEN LUNCHES
A series of four Lenten Lunches are set for this year on consecutive Wednesdays during Lent. They are hosted by the Circles of Faith Churches, Zion United Methodist, and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. There is no charge, but a freewill offering is collected for the Denmark Community Cupboard. The presentations this year focus on discovering the strengths of rural communities, and signs we should look for that may suggest our neighbors need help. Lunches begin at 12:00 noon and conclude at 1:00pm.
Help is needed to prepare the soup and side dishes. Please call your parish office to volunteer.
The Press Release for the Denmark Community Ecumenical Lenten lunches has been posted HERE. Add it to your calendar!
The next Grief Support Group will be on Sunday, March 8 at 6pm in St. James Parish Hall. (not the parish center) We will have a presenter, Fr. John Van Deuren, who is Priest Celebrant and Priest Moderator at St Louis Parish, Dyckesville. His topic is “Journeys of Faith in Times of Grief.”
Experiencing the death of a loved one can result in a variety of reactions related to one's faith, such as struggles and questioning one's faith, or finding much comfort in one's faith. Fr. John will present an introduction to the role of faith in one's individual grief experience. Participants will have an opportunity to share their own grief journey and ask ques-tions about the positive and/or sometimes confusing role of faith as one attempts to make sense of their situation.
BISHOP’S APPEAL 2015
As part of your Lenten sacrifice, we ask that all parishioners participate in the 2015 Bishop’s Appeal with a generous donation. This annual appeal funds the various minis-tries and services of the Green Bay Diocese. Please make your gift today… Contact your parish office, use the pledge card you received in the mail, or visit www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give. Thank you for your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal, and for supporting your parish.
Youth in Grades 6-12 and their friends are invited to join in these upcoming events:
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.
THINKING ABOUT SEPARATION OR DIVORCE?
Is your marriage or that of a relative or friend headed for divorce? Do you know how to save that marriage? Retrou-vaille is designed to help troubled marriages. It helps un-cover the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together. The program is highly successful in saving hurting marriages, even bringing reconciliation to couples. For confidential information about the upcoming weekend at St. Norbert Abbey in De Pere March 6-8 visit www.HelpOurMarriage.com or call 800-470-2230.
