  A note from your Deacon


While watching a recent church video, there were young adults who were interviewed about matters of faith. The question asked of them was, “Who is the Holy Spirit?”  I thought this to be an easy question to answer but surprisingly, most young adults interviewed did not know the answer or had even heard of the Holy Spirit.  If they lived in our area, I would have told these young adults to attend a “Life in the Spirit Seminar,” so they could learn more about the Holy Spirit and His gifts for us.  We are most fortunate that for those who wish to learn and experience more about the Holy Spirit, there will be held next month, a “Life in the Spirit Seminar,” starting on Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, at St. Francis Solanus Church (See bulletin for more details).  This seminar is a powerful way to experience the presence of God in a new and exciting way.  As our world becomes more secular, the Holy Spirit is still alive and moving in the hearts of men and women who are open to the fire of His love.   In today’s second reading, St. Paul talks about the different kinds of gifts of the Spirit and also the different forms of service. Within this diversity, unity is found as God is the only source of all these gifts, given to each to build up the community of believers. Each baptized person is called to discover and use these gifts of the Spirit for the greater glory of God and for the good of all.  Let us give thanks ahead of time, for joy we will experience in discovering the gifts the Holy Spirit has given to us.

Upon Further Reflection: 

Possible signs outside of church:   Gambling is a sin.  Bet you can’t give it up.


There are some questions that can’t be answered by Google.

Let us help you study for your final exam.

Speak well of your enemies. After all, you made them.

The meek shall inherit the earth, that is, if you don’t mind. 


Happy Easter to our Christian friends. Happy Passover to our Jewish friends. Happy Ramadan to our Muslim friends. To our atheist friends, good luck!


In His mercy,


Deacon Mark


The Mass – A slice at a time The Homily

The Homily is part of the Liturgy and is highly recommended, for it is necessary for the nurturing of the Christian life. It should be an explanation of some aspect of the readings from Sacred Scripture or of another text from the Ordinary or the Proper of the Mass of the day and should take into account both the mystery being celebrated and the particular needs of the listeners.




On Wednesday January 16, 2019 Faith Formation discussed this Sunday’s Gospel story of the Wedding in Cana.  Students from 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade also made water into wine (actually Kool-Aid).  We have 4 new students! Welcome Kayliah, Siril, Annaya and Eli. 


Kateri Prayer Circle

Never underestimate the power of prayer. Just one small prayer can change your life. If you or your family members need prayers for any reason, please call one of our Kateri Prayer Circle members, who will in turn call members of their group.  Soon, many prayers will be offered for your specific prayer request.  Please call: 

Fay Waupochick 715-799-3437

Leatha Grinhaug 715-994-1098

You can also call the parish office with your Prayer request 715-799-3811. 



Do you like to sing?   Can you play an instrument?  We are looking to get a choir together.  If you are interested in singing or playing an instrument and would like to be a part of this choir, please call the parish office at (715) 799-3811.


 Food Pantry

St. Michael Food Pantry is in need of volunteers, especially men, to carry out the food on the first and third Tuesday of each month.   If we don’t get volunteers, we will be closing.  

Please contact the Parish Office (715) 799-3811 to volunteer. 

Life in the Spirit Seminar

The Life in the Spirit Seminar provides seven weekly sessions of teaching guidance, sharing and prayer that lead to a new or deeper relationship with the Lord. It is an invitation to make or renew a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ in openness to the Holy Spirit and His gifts. The Seminar will begin on Monday, February 18, 2019 rom 7-8:30 pm at St. Francis Catholic Church, Gresham.  Informational pamphlets are available on all bulletin boards in the entrances. For more information please call Judy Westphal (715-853-6088), Theresa Voelz (7150787-4658) or Holly Schmidt (715-851-1208). Sponsored by Divine Mercy Prayer Group (Gresham) and in cooperation with the Green Bay Diocesan Charismatic Renewal.
