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!

EasterDawn

“For our sake Christ was obedient, accepting even death, death on a cross. Therefore God raised him on high and gave him the name above all other names.”

Transform us, O Lord with Easter Joy!

No single event has affected so many lives over the course of human history as the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead nearly two thousand years ago.

As Jesus approached Calvary, things became pretty chaotic for His disciples. Peter would deny knowing Jesus, and Judas would kill himself after betraying and having Jesus arrested for 30 silver pieces.  Everything seemed so bleak. But all that changed when Jesus rose again.  The faith and hope of the apostles and disciples would be restored.

Peter would deny knowing Jesus, and Judas would kill himself after betraying and having Jesus arrested for 30 silver pieces.  Everything seemed so bleak. But all that changed when Jesus rose again.  The faith and hope of the apostles and disciples would be restored. Jesus would command them to go forth and make disciples of the whole  world and they would do so with renewed dedication. They stayed in Jerusalem waiting for the Holy Spirit to come upon them as Jesus had promised. Then came Pentecost, when these disciples experienced Jesus’ presence in a most powerful way.

Herein, for us, is the excitement of the Easter story that we celebrate and live.  Jesus’ Resurrection brings us all new life!  Be Resurrection Disciples for Jesus!

Peace and Easter blessings,
The Circle of Faith Pastoral Staff

FATHER RON’S RETIREMENT PARTY

Father Ron’s Retirement Party has been scheduled for Sunday, June 22 at Pott’s Beverly Gardens. The office managers will help to coordinate the event but need a few people from each parish to take it over and make it happen. Please call your parish office if you are able to help.


LINKAGE TRANSITION UPDATE

Representatives of each parish in the Circle of Faith are meeting to help facilitate changes as Father Ron retires on June 30. The diocese has determined that we will be divided into two clusters — All Saints, Holy Trinity, and St. Mary in one group, and St. James and St. Joseph comprising a second cluster.

The Transition Team hopes to retain all or most of the shared programs and ministries that the Circle of Faith has developed. If you have questions, comments or concerns, please contact a representative from your parish listed below:

  • All Saints:  Mary Krueger 660-1119; John Herbes 412-6046
  • St. James:  Debra Lyons 863-3482; Jean Schleis 863-3965

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

Glory Be

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
