Memorial Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, we remember today those in the military who have given their lives for freedoms we enjoy. Give strength, comfort and guidance to all who serve in our Armed Forces. Grant them your loving protection. We ask you to heal our wounded warriors who returned home in pain after giving their all for this great land. Bless them. Restore their souls. Heal their bodies. Bless the families of our military who stay behind while their loved one serves our country. Keep them in your care and provide for their needs according to your abundance. Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God, and let your mercy rest upon our land. Amen

ALL SAINTS SCHOOL GRADUATION
We are excited to welcome three new alumni. Gabrielle Arendt, Dylan Horch, and Gabriel Wertel will receive their diplomas Tuesday evening, May 31 in a graduation ceremony following a 6pm Mass. We are very proud of their accomplishments. Not only has each grown academically stronger, but each has grown solidly stronger in their Catholic spirituality. Just as Jesus did before sending his disciples out, All Saints School prays for them. We thank God for the opportunity to provide a solid education based on Gospel teachings and values. We also ask Him to protect and bless each as they move into high school. All Saints School looks forward to their continued work in Jesus’ name.

Because of All Saints School graduation this week, the Tuesday evening Bible Study and Mass on May 31 are cancelled. All are invited and encouraged to attend the Graduation Mass at 6pm at All Saints.

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.

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.
