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! 

FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION ~ HOLY DAY

This coming Tuesday, August 15 we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This significant feast  day recalls the spiritual and physical departure of Jesus’ mother from the earth, when both her body and her soul were taken into Heaven. We hope everyone will make it a priority to attend Mass. Our Circle churches have scheduled Masses at the following locations and times:

  • August 15 Tuesday 6:30 PM St. Mary Glenmore
  • August 15 Tuesday 7:30 PM St. James Cooperstown

SEMINARIAN COLLECTION

Bishop Ricken is asking for your help to support the diocesan seminarians. This is our primary way to assist these young men who are our hope for the future. Please help them today by mailing your contribution directly to the diocese. In order to make your gift today, visit www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give.


CIRCLE OF FAITH PARISHIONERS – SAVE THE DATE!

Mark your calendars for December 2, for an all day event celebrating Advent that will be held at All Saints Parish. Two special guests are coming: Fr. James Baraniak, who is the Packers Chaplain, Prison Chaplain and Prior of St. Norbert Abbey, and Bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay. Cost for the day is $15 per person or $25 per family. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Watch the bulletin for more updates. Any questions, please call Jim Mrotek at 864-2887.


SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

Our Circle of Faith parishes are again organizing a collection of school supplies for area families who need a little help to start the new school year. The Stewardship Team is working with the Facebook Group, “Denmark Helping Denmark” to collect and distribute items. (Community Cupboard will not be involved as they have been previously.)

This year we want to include families in our outlying Circle communities (Kellnersville, Glenmore/Stark) who may need assistance. “Denmark Helping Denmark” will be the central link for distribution, but if you don’t belong to the group (or don’t want to join) we can still help out. Please call Jean Schleis for more information, 863-3965. 

There will be boxes in the entrances of our churches for donations starting July 22-23 through August 12-13. Click here to see a list of items needed this year.


TRIANGLE OF FAITH

*** SUNDAY MASS TIMES CHANGES ***

Effective Sunday, July 2, Mass times will be changing for All Saints and St. Mary Glenmore. All Saints Mass time will move to 8:15am and St. Mary Glenmore Mass time will move to 9:45am. If you have questions, please contact either of the parish offices.


ARE YOU CALLED TO BE CATHOLIC?

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’re interested in exploring the faith themselves.  We are offering the R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process again this fall.


BISHOP’S APPEAL 2017

The Circles of Faith promotion for the Bishop’s Appeal concluded on June 30. Again, thank you to everyone who contributed to the appeal. The diocese will continue to accept payments on pledges as well as new donations through fall.

This is how you can make a donation:

  • Make a check payable to The Catholic Foundation, and write Bishop’s Appeal in the memo line. Place it in the collection basket at Mass.
  • Mail your pledge or check to the Catholic Foundation at P.O. Box 22128, Green Bay, WI 54305.
  • Go online to www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give for more information and to give by credit card or Electronic Fund Transfer.

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 having an intention for the Masses they celebrate daily. 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.


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

Elijah recognized the voice of God not in the strong and heavy wind, not in the earthquake, and not in the fire, but in a tiny whispering sound. May we find enough quiet in our clamorous world to hear His voice and discern what He is calling us to do and be.


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
