SHIPWRECKED ~ RESCUED BY JESUS!

FUN & FAITH
JULY 16 - JULY 20, 2018
8:30 am - 11:30 am

Ages 4½- 11 years old

We look forward to navigating with children, youth and adults toward a secluded island for the annual Fun & Faith Program this week. There will be one important Bible point onboard each day that will be reinforced through song, crafts, games and snacks. Stop down at St.James Parish Hall after Masses this weekend to see the amazing setup. Parents, grandparents and others are welcome to stop in anytime during the program to see what fun lessons are being taught.

Please keep us in your prayers this week, and if you have any last minute questions, you may call Lea Ann Allen at (920) 246-2885.


NEW RECONCILIATION TIMES

St. James/St. Joseph: Father Dennis Ryan will be available to hear confessions before Mass at St. James on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, starting at 6:30pm. At St. Joseph, Confessions may be arranged around the 8:15am Wednesday morning Mass. All Saints: Father Paul Demuth will hear Confessions every Saturday afternoon from 3:15 - 3:45pm, prior to Mass.


From the Desk of Deacon Cal

Dear Parishioners,
I have asked for and have been granted Senior Permanent Deacon status by Bishop David L. Ricken, so I am retiring from active ministry as of June 18, 2018.
It has been a blessing for me to serve as Deacon in the Circle of Faith communities for the past 18 years. Your witnessing to our faith and living it out has been an inspiration for me. I ask you to keep Karen and me in your prayers as I move forward in my life, being open to the wisdom and will of the Holy Spirit. You will continue to be in my prayers as well.

Yours in Christ,

Deacon Cal Naidl

The Parisioners of all the Circle of Faith churches wish to thank Deacon Cal for his many years of service to us, our faith, and to Jesus Christ!


ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT CATHOLICISM?

There are many reasons why people choose to become Catholic. Some are married to a Catholic and are ready to explore this faith further. Some may have attended a Catholic funeral and were moved by that experience. Perhaps some admire a person who is Catholic, and they would like to explore Catholicism too. If you are curious about the Catholic faith, we are offering the R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process again this fall. If you are interested in exploring Catholicism, or have questions about it, please call the 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.

Stewardship Message

Today’s readings are about being chosen and sent. The prophet Amos was chosen by the Lord and sent to use his talents for the people of God. The Gospel recounts the story of the sending of the twelve. In the second reading, St. Paul reminds us that we, too, are chosen.

For what have I been chosen?

To whom have I been sent?


RECONCILIATION

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. 


Safe Environment

Each person has an inherent dignity as a beloved child of God.  The Diocese of Green Bay is committed to providing a safe environment in our parishes, in our schools, in our Faith Formation programs, and in all of our ministries, especially those that serve children, youth and individuals at risk.  If you want to learn more about the programs and resources available through the Diocese of Green Bay to live out this commitment, please click on the following link: http://www.gbdioc.org/ministry-formation-portal/safe-environment.html


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

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
