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! 

OUR OWN NEEDS COLLECTION

STRENGTHENING THE CHURCH AT HOME

This weekend a second collection is taken throughout our diocese for special needs in the United States. The four major beneficiaries include:

  1. The Catholic Communications Campaign connects people with Christ through media programming. As people continue to access information on mobile devices there is an increased need to provide faith resources on these platforms. Fifty percent of the funds collected remain in our diocese.
  2. The Catholic Home Missions Appeal assists over 80 mission dioceses in the United States. Your support helps ease the struggle of these dioceses and ensures the Gospel is spread across the United States. Basic services include Mass, the sacraments, and religious education.
  3. Black and Native American Missions building Christian communities among the Native American, African American and Alaska Native people in the U.S. Funds are given out in grants. In our Diocese, we annually receive a grant for parishes in Neopit & Keshena.
  4. The Catholic University of America is the national university of the Catholic Church. It provides education guided by Catholic tradition to nearly 7,000 students every year.

Bereavement Ministry

Those who are mourning the loss of a loved one are welcome to the next Circle of Faith Grief Support Group. It is planned for next Sunday, May 20 at 12 noon at St. James Parish Center. The facilitator is Tom Bekkers, and the topic will be “Gender Differences in Grief.” Snacks, beverages and a social will follow.

This campaign is the number one source funding the diocesan ministries and services for an entire year! Every parish is assigned a goal based on their membership, locale and other factors. The goal is obligatory: parishes are billed for whatever shortfall remains at the end of the campaign. We are asking again, that if you have not yet made a contribution this year, that you do so soon so that we can conclude this effort. Thank you.
