He is Risen!!!
Easter is not a day. It is a season.
It is not only a season, but a way of life!
Christ is Risen!
Alleluia! He is Risen! Today and throughout the Easter season Alleluia is our song. Even though Lent goes on because we have a long journey of conversion, in a way Lent goes underground. Alleluia lights the way. There is reason for joy right now. It’s good to keep singing Alleluia and going forward. Wishing you and all your loved ones a truly blessed and Happy Easter!
Sister Gerri and the Staff of St. James & St. Joseph
May God abundantly bless you all and your families with His graces during this Easter Season! Let us always remember that every encounter is a wonderful opportunity to bring Jesus into our hearts and into our environments. Hold someone’s hand this Easter and offer a prayer.

Thank you to everyone who has made a financial gift thus far. If you haven’t yet made your contribution, here are 3 easy ways to make a donation:
MASS OR EVENT CANCELLATIONS
In the unlikely circumstance that Mass or other events would be cancelled at any of our Circle of Faith Churches, please look to WFRV TV, Channel 5, the WFRV website, or listen to the radio, WCUB 980 AM or WLTU 92.1 FM for information. St. James and All Saints Religious Ed. cancellations are announced at Denmark Public Schools whenever possible, and St. Joseph Religious Ed. cancellations are announced at Reedsville Public Schools.

HOLY LAND TRIP RE-SCHEDULED
Father Kevin has postponed The Circle of Faith Parishes Pilgrimage to the Holy Land until 2018. Walk where Jesus lived! Visit Christ's birthplace, towns of ministries and miracles, the crucifixion and resurrection sites. Stops at Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Jerusalem & more hosted by Pro Catholic Tours from May 11-21, 2018. Cost of $3,900.00 includes tour, airfare, 4/5 star accommodations, taxes, tips, fees, transportation, breakfast, and dinners. Please register at www.procatholictours.com or call Kami @ 769-220-2702.
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 having an intention for the Masses they celebrate daily. 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
April 23 Sun. 8:30-9:30am St. Joseph
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.
When you compare what you have contributed in time, do not compare it to what your fellow church member has done. Compare what you have done to what God has done for you. This must be the standard for your comparison.
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
