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!
One Degree Youth Ministry
Students entering grades 9 thru 12 this fall who are interested in being part of the 2013-2014 One Degree Youth Ministry Peer Team are asked to fill out a Team application. Check out the website's Youth Ministry page for more information on PEER MINISTRY or to download the Team Application, or please contact Kyle Kapinos at
or Deacon Dave Scheuer at
Celebrate the start of summer with a Sunset Liturgy, bonfire, and Christian fellowship at St. James Parish on Monday, June 24 starting at 8:00pm. All you need to bring is a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
ST. MARY PICNIC
Mark your calendar! St. Mary’s Parish picnic will be held on Sunday, June 30, 2013 at the Stark location. We are looking for prizes for the kid’s games. If you are interested in either donating an item or making a donation towards the purchase of items, please contact the parish office at 864-7641.
FISCAL YEAR END APPROACHING
Only a short time remains until the end of the fiscal year on June 30. We’d like to remind everyone that financial contributions must be submitted by that date to be included in this year’s annual report. Regular support of your parish may not seem very exciting, until you realize that none of the staff, liturgical services, ministries, educational programs, or even building utilities and maintenance would be possible without it.
Thank you for your support!
Each parish in our Circle of Faith Community is scheduling Masses for 2014. Each church has their own set of guidelines for the number of Masses permitted in a calendar year. Please call your parish office to request Masses, or if you have any questions. The fee for a Mass is set by the Diocese and is $10 each.
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AND DEATH LISTINGS IN THE COMPASS
CIRCLE OF FAITH PICNIC
Reserve the date! Sunday, September 8 will be the Annual Linked Parish Picnic at Bay Beach Amusement Park in Green Bay this year. The large shelter near the “Zippin Pippin” rollercoaster has been reserved for our group. Watch for more information later this summer.
FUN & FAITH 2013
All children in the linkage, ages 4 ½ through those entering 5th grade are welcome to participate in the “Everywhere Fun Fair” this summer. Held at St. James, July 22nd - 26th. The children will explore God’s welcoming love and discover how Jesus teaches us to be great neighbors. Registration forms for children, and for youth and adult volunteers are in the entrances of our linkage churches, or can be found here on the website and then retuned to St James Office.
BISHOP’S APPEAL UPDATE
Thank you to everyone who has donated or pledged to the 2013 Bishop’s Appeal so far! Contributions are still coming in, and we greatly appreciate them because we have not yet met our goals. (Except for Holy Trinity!) We know that many people who have not contributed easily excuse themselves for one reason or another. But when all is said and done, it is your own parish that will lose out when they will have to pay the deficit out of parish funds. So, one more time, please open your heart today and decide to make a donation to the Bishop’s Appeal. All contributions, no matter the amount, are appreciated. You will feel good for doing your part to help your parish reach its goal.
PRAYER FOR SUCCESS OF THE BISHOP’S APPEAL
Father, I know how wonderful and mighty you are. I also know if we walk in your word, and have the faith of a mustard seed, that you will pour out blessings.
I send up a prayer request for financial blessings on our parish. I know, for you, nothing is impossible. You just will it, and it will happen. Release your Godly wisdom that I may be a good steward. Thank you Lord, for the blessings I have received and for the blessings yet to come, because I know you are not done with me yet. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
