The Circle of Faith

 


 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!

 

FUN & FAITH “CAVE QUEST” IS HERE!

The long awaited “Cave Quest will begin Monday morning for children ages 4½ to 11 at St. James Church. Kids will learn about the rock-solid foundation of God’s love, a love that takes us through life’s dark times. On this courageous, captivating quest, kids experience Jesus - the light of the world. They will have one important Bible point each day, and it's reinforced through songs, crafts, games and snacks. On Friday there will be a family picnic to conclude the week, and children are invited to participate in the 8:00 Mass next Sunday at St. James. There will also be a float built for the Denmark Lions Parade next Sunday.

The parish hall at St. James has been transformed into a huge cave, complete with stalactites and bats--stop down after Masses this weekend for a peek at the awesome setup. If you have questions about Fun & Faith, please call Patty Bekkers at 863-5247.

Registration forms and more information can be found HERE on our website under Events.


SCHOOL SUPPLIES COLLECTION - STARTS NEXT WEEKEND

Again this summer our Circle churches are collecting school supplies for our local Community Cupboard families who are in need. However, instead of asking for specific supplies that students need, we will have a general collection of school needs for students at primary, middle, and high school levels. The collection will run for 3 weeks from July 24 through August 7. The school sales are starting, so we hope you will be able to pick up a necessary item for another child whose family needs help. Collection boxes will be placed in the entrances of our churches.


SCHEDULING MASSES

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.


RELIGIOUS EDUCATION Registration

Now open!!

Now is the time to enroll your children for Religious Education classes at each of our Circles of Faith Parishes. Students in Religious Education programs receive sacrament instruction, as well as integrated Youth Ministry programming at the Middle and High School levels. Early enrollment allows us time to find catechists and order books and other materials during the summer months. Please contact your parish RE Coordinator for registration information and materials. (Contact information is on Page 6 of this week's bulletin.)

Thank you!

STEWARDSHIP MESSAGE

The story of Martha and Mary reminds us that good Stewardship of our time includes both adequate time for our daily tasks, and also spending some time with the Lord.


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.

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
