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!
TUESDAY PRESENTATION: “THE FRANCIS EFFECT”
All parish members are invited to hear guest speaker Julianne Stanz uncover ways to welcome people to our communities since Pope Francis’ visit to the United States. Ms Stanz, a nationally known speaker, retreat leader and story teller is known to speak with humor and fresh insights. The presentation will be at St. James Parish hall this Tuesday, December 1 from 6:30-8:00pm. RSVP’s are appreciated by calling either St. James Office at 863-2585, or All Saints Office at 863-5256.
ADVENT PRAYER CALENDARS
Included with the bulletins this weekend is a prayer calendar for the four weeks of Advent. We hope that you will post it somewhere in your home as a spiritual reminder to keep the Advent season holy with daily prayer.
LITTLE BLUE BOOKS FOR ADVENT
All Circles of Faith churches have daily meditation booklets available to help you pray during the busy Advent season that begins next weekend. The “Little Blue Books” are compact and fit easily in a purse, pocket, or backpack. A donation of $1.00 is asked for to help defray the cost.
Rejoice in the simplicity of the season at The Bridge Between Retreat Center on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 7 – 8:30pm with a Live Nativity presentation. Dress warmly to join us in the Belgian Cathedral barn for carols and seasonal readings. Bring a small flashlight and a bell to ring. Refreshments afterward.
2016 MASS INTENTIONS
All parishes in the Circles of Faith are taking requests for Masses for next year. If you would like to have a Mass said for your family or any intention, please call the office for dates that are open. There is a $10 stipend per Mass.
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.
PARISH HOLY HOUR SCHEDULE
Dec. 2 Wed. 6:00-7:00pm All Saints
EUCHARISTIC ADORATION SCHEDULE
All Saints 1st Wednesday, 1pm-6pm
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.
Glittery holiday ads can blind us to our Stewardship values and distort our needs and wants. It is important that during this season of endless buying we remember that each of us also has the need to give back to God and to those that are in need.
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.
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.
