The Circle of Faith
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!
Easter is not a day, it is a season.
We are an Easter People!
WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Today the Church throughout the world prays for vocations. Will you make a special effort to ask the Lord for more vocations to priesthood and religious life?
PRAYER FOR FIRST COMMUNICANTS
Dear Jesus, You have loved us with such great love that yougave us the precious gift of the Holy Eucharist. Give your blessings to these, our young children who are about to approach Thy holy table for the first time. Protect them from every evil, strengthen their faith, increase their love and endow them with all the virtues that will make them worthy to receive Thee. Amen
FUN & FAITH 2015 EVEREST EXPEDITION
Kids ages 4 1/2 through 11 are invited along on an icy expedition during the hottest days of summer. Kids will learn to overcome obstacles with God's awesome power. At Everest Fun & Faith kids will experience God's Word in surprising and unforgettable ways! Each day, leaders reinforce one simple Bible truth—which makes it easy for kids to remember and apply to real life! In addition to the Bible stories, there will be crafts, music, snacks and games. The weeklong program is at St. James Church from 8:30am until 1130am each day from July 20-24. Sign up now by downloading the registration form available HERE on the website.
BISHOP’S APPEAL 2015
BISHOP’S APPEAL PROGRESS
Our parishes are making progress toward meeting their 2015 goals. Success will come when every parishioner gives a donation toward the ministries and services that the diocese provides. Your contribution—large or small will make the difference. To learn more about the good work of the Bishop’s Appeal, go to www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give. Then, prayerfully consider a generous donation to support this Appeal. Contributions may be mailed to the diocese (preferably) or placed in the collection basket at Mass
The next Grief Support Group will be May 17 from 6-8pm at St. James Parish Center. The topic will be “Grief after an unexpected death vs. a lengthy illness.”
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.
MASS OR EVENT CANCELLATIONS
If a weekend Mass at any of our Circle of Faith churches is cancelled because of hazardous winter weather, 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, All Saints, and St. Mary Religious Educa-tion cancellations are announced at Den-mark Public schools whenever possible, and St. Joseph Religious Education cancel-lations are announced at Reedsville Public Schools.
When you pray, do you only ask God for things that you want? Do you ever ask Him what He wants you to do? How do you listen for the response? The answer is usually in “quiet whispers”. Take time in silent, daily prayer to hear His answer.
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
We sincerely hope that you feel at home in our Circle Churches and that you are among friends.
Please let us know if we can serve you in any way.
