EasterDawn

He is Risen!!!

Easter is not a day.  It is a season.

It is not only a season, but a way of life!

Prayer for Memorial Day

God of power and mercy, you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears, that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters.
Keep in your mercy those men and women who have died in the cause of freedom and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


HOME MISSIONS-OUR OWN NEEDS COLLECTION

Next weekend, June 3 - 4 we will be taking up a special diocesan collection. Your support of the Home Missions - Our Own Needs makes a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters here in the United States. The beneficiaries represented in the collection and their
purpose are:

  • Catholic Communications Campaign develops media programming to promote Gospel values. Half of all proceeds raised stay in our Diocese.
  • Catholic Home Missions Appeal assists over 80 dioceses in the United States that cannot provide basic pastoral services without outside help. These include Mass, the sacraments, and religious education.
  • Black and Native American Missions exist to build Christian communities among the Native American, African American and Alaskan native people in the U.S. Money collected is given out in grants to Catholic schools and religious education programs for these people. In our Diocese, we assist parishes in Neopit & Keshena.
  • The Catholic University of America provides education guided by Catholic tradition to nearly 7,000 students each year. Every donated dollar supports financial aid for students.

ALL SAINTS SCHOOL REGISTRATION

All Saints School is looking for your child. Our staff here meets students at individual academic levels and then challenges them to move ahead through a personalized approach and flexible seating. Students are given more ownership of their education as teachers facilitate learning using a strong, faith infused curriculum. Step into our world and you will see individual learning and thought-provoking dialogue within groups. Registration for 2017 - 2018 is open. Call the school office at 863-2449 for a unique tour or student shadow.


FUN & FAITH 2017

Build, invent, and explore this summer at the

Annual Fun & Faith week at St. James Church.

MAKER FUN FACTORY is being held July 17 – 21 from 8:30am until 11:30am. Kids ages 4 ½ to 11 will have fun singing and dancing with new songs, diving in at Bible Discovery, creating fun crafts, letting loose at Game Makers, and enjoying snacks at the Snack Factory. This is sure to be an action packed week of exploring God’s love and learning about His creation and purpose for us.

Registration forms and volunteer forms are available on our St James homepage on this Circle of Faith website. Please check out the bulletin board at the back of St. James church as well. For more information, please contact Patty Bekkers at 863-5247.


BISHOP’S APPEAL 2017

The annual Bishop’s Appeal funds the ministries and services of the Green Bay Diocese. It will conclude at the end of June for the Circle Parishes. Unfortunately, at this point, only one parish, Holy Trinity, has met their goal. Any deficit in the goal amount that is unmet will need to be paid from parish funds. Please do what you can to help avoid this situation. All donations, no matter the amount, are important and appreciated. 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.

St. James  $25,946  $29,337

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.

STEWARDSHIP MESSAGE

Trusting God with our finances!


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.
