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.


MASS OR EVENT CANCELLATIONS

In the unlikely circumstance that Mass or other events would be cancelled at any of our Circle of Faith Churches, 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 and All Saints Religious Ed. cancellations are announced at Denmark Public Schools whenever possible, and St. Joseph Religious Ed. cancellations are announced at Reedsville Public Schools. St. Mary Religious Ed. cancellations are announced at Denmark and DePere Public Schools.

STEWARDSHIP MESSAGE

In today’s Gospel, the vineyard owner says, “I am free to do as I please with my money, am I not?” Likewise, we too are free to do whatever we want with our money.

Is a generous return to the Lord for His many blessings among the choices we have made?


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
