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! 

COLLECTION FOR THE ARCHDIOCESE FOR MILITARY SERVICES

This weekend is the triennial collection to benefit the Archdiocese for Military Services. Please prayerfully consider a contribution to this collection to support active duty military men and women and their families, including those from our own parishes. (All Saints will have this collection next weekend.)


Bereavement Ministry

The Circle of Faith Grief Support Group will gather this Sunday, Nov. 17, at noon at St. James Parish Hall. Anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one is welcome to attend this session that will focus on “Coping with the Loss of a Loved One During the Holidays.” The discussion is aimed at helping to provide strategies for you to better cope with your grief during this joyous, yet painful time of the year. Tom Bekkers is the facilitator. There will be a social afterward.


EARLY BULLETIN DEADLINES

Please be aware of these two early deadlines coming up:

  • Thursday, Nov. 21, at 9am articles due for the Dec. 1 bulletin

DENMARK COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING MEAL

There will be a free Thanksgiving Day Dinner for people in Denmark and the surrounding communities on Nov. 28. All are invited to dine at the Denmark High School cafetorium between 11:30am and 1:30pm on Thanksgiving Day. Home delivery will be available. An event of this magnitude calls for many volunteers. To prepare for the guests, we are seeking volunteers who could help prepare foods earlier in the week, and helpers to set-up, serve, and clean-up on Thanksgiving Day. The idea is to create a sense of family togetherness and community hospitality. Here are the contacts to find out how you can help or to RSVP for the meal:

  • Call Sherri at (920) 883-2384 to RSVP or request home delivery.
  • Call Ginger at (920) 362-0211 if you’d like to prepare a turkey or donate other foods.
  • Call Rita at (920)655-8027 if you’d like to volunteer on Nov. 27 or 28 for a 2 hour shift.

ANNUAL MEETINGS

Some Annual Parish Meeting dates have been set. These meetings are open to all members to learn about what is being done in their parishes. Mark your calendars!

  • St. James: Tues., Nov. 19 - Soup Supper followed by meeting. Introduction of new staff, Parish Mission Planning Rollout, and Annual Report presentation.

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
