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!

 

Memorial Day Prayer

Heavenly Father, we remember today those in the military who have given their lives for freedoms we enjoy. Give strength, comfort and guidance to all who serve in our Armed Forces. Grant them your loving protection. We ask you to heal our wounded warriors who returned home in pain after giving their all for this great land. Bless them. Restore their souls. Heal their bodies. Bless the families of our military who stay behind while their loved one serves our country. Keep them in your care and provide for their needs according to your abundance. Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God, and let your mercy rest upon our land. Amen

ALL SAINTS SCHOOL GRADUATION

We are excited to welcome three new alumni. Gabrielle Arendt, Dylan Horch, and Gabriel Wertel will receive their diplomas Tuesday evening, May 31 in a graduation ceremony following a 6pm Mass. We are very proud of their accomplishments. Not only has each grown academically stronger, but each has grown solidly stronger in their Catholic spirituality. Just as Jesus did before sending his disciples out, All Saints School prays for them. We thank God for the opportunity to provide a solid education based on Gospel teachings and values. We also ask Him to protect and bless each as they move into high school. All Saints School looks forward to their continued work in Jesus’ name.

2016 BISHOP’S APPEAL

Both All Saints and Holy Trinity Parishes have met their goals for the 2016 Appeal. Congratulations!

This past week, staff members from our parishes attended a Leadership Convention at the K.I. Center in Green Bay that was partially funded by this Appeal. Nationally known speakers talked about ways to build up parishes, and exhibits from vendors and organizations were displayed. Attendees had a chance to learn new information, and network with other church leaders. This is just one example of how contributions are helping our Circles of Faith.

If you have not yet made your contribution to the Bishop’s Appeal this year, here are 3 easy ways to do so:

  • 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 23001, Green Bay, WI 54305.
  • Go online to www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give for more information and to make a gift using a credit card or Electronic Fund Transfer.
  YTD   Goal  
All Saints   $30,067 $26,616
Holy Trinity      $4,635  $4,500
St. James    $26,185    $27,928
St. Joseph $9,475 $13,250
St. Mary $10,635 $17,044

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
