FALL FAMILY FROLIC NEXT SUNDAY
Come one, Come all... Parishioners and the public are all welcome to Frolic at St. James Church next Sunday from 11am until 5pm. Please keep today’s bulletin insert handy
Please note that because of the Fall Family Frolic next Sunday, October 2, at St. James Parish, the Mass time for St. James is changed from 8:00am to 10:00am. This does not affect the Mass times at any of the other Circle parishes, and is for this one Sunday only.
VIRTUS CLASS SCHEDULED
All adults who volunteer with children or vulnerable adults in our parishes are required to attend a class on Protecting God’s Children, called VIRTUS. A class is scheduled for Sunday, October 23 at St. James Parish Hall at 6:30pm. There is no cost, but registration is required by going online to www.virtusonline.org and clicking on the Registration tab on the left. If you do not have Internet access, please call your parish office.
Each parish in our Circles of Faith accepts Mass requests for your intentions. The stipend/offering is $10 whether on a weekend or weekday. To schedule, please call the church office where you would like the Mass said. As an alternative, and especially if you want to have many Masses said, the retired priests of our diocese appreciate being able to have an intention for the Masses that they celebrate. The stipends are also a source of help for them in their retirement. Mass intentions for retired priests may be arranged by calling your parish office.
COMMUNION FOR THE HOMEBOUND
The strength and graces that come from the Eucharist are available to those who are unable to attend Mass due to illness, old age, or recuperation from surgery. Please call your parish office to make arrangements to have the Eucharist brought to you or a family member.
PARISH HOLY HOUR SCHEDULE
Oct. 5 Wed. 6:00-7:00pm All Saints
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.
The sin of the rich man in today’s parable was not that he was rich, but that he failed to share his wealth with the beggar at his gate. He knew Lazarus, perhaps walked by him every time he came in or out, but did nothing to relieve his suffering. Is there a Lazarus in my life?
What am I doing to help?
DID YOU KNOW?
The Green Bay Diocese through its Catholic Charities Office offers teen parent services when a pregnancy occurs. They provide help to frightened and confused, sometimes angry young adults in making decisions about their situation and the choice to be parents. It’s just one of the ways that your gifts to the Bishop’s Appeal help people in northeastern Wisconsin. Thank you for your support.
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.
