 A Note from Deacon Mark

“They found the stone rolled away from the tomb;
but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.   (Luke 24:2-3)

The empty tomb….this is our evidence that the Lord Jesus has been raised.  The tomb is empty because death could not bind and hold Him.   The resurrection of the Lord Jesus becomes our hope and our joy!  If we die with him, then we are sure to rise with him.  In his mercy and love, God did not abandon us to sin and death.  Jesus is risen and will raise to life our mortal bodies as well.  Sing loudly this Easter morn and sing joyfully for the next 50 days of Easter too.   He is truly Risen! Alleluia, Alleluia!

Easter Morn

When I rose out of bed that day.

It seemed to me, thousands of birds had awoke and become a chorus singing.

Startled…. that’s odd, I thought.

They had been silent since the time of Passover’s ringing.

Then I heard whisperings- the tomb was said empty.

Oh, no! What had the Romans done now?

Did they not take enough flesh by their scourging and their nails?

No further respect for his body, even though he was God’s Son.

Later I learned three women, first to arrive and anoint.

Saw the stone rolled away and angels who said,

“Why do you seek the living among the dead?”

You will see him soon and, later, in the breaking of the bread.

This story would not die. Peter told it to me later, still amazed.

All these things I ponder, it’s beyond anything I could ever see.

Yet, still the tomb is empty, the wrappings neatly piled.

Oh, Lord, can it be?  Oh, let me rise… together with thee!


Easter blessings and joy,


Deacon Mark


The Mass – A slice at a time

On the Liturgy of the Eucharist

As early as the fourth century, catechists explained that the water represented humanity and the wine, divinity. Once you put the water into the wine, it’s impossible to take it out again. Because of Jesus, humanity can never again be separated permanently from God. So the custom continues. 


Faith Formation Faith Formation 

No classes April 17th in observation of Holy Week.  Our last class will be April 24, 2019. Have a joyous and Blessed Easter. 



The Faith Formation students decorated wooden crosses. They are in the windows and on the doors in church. Please check these out.  The kids did a great job decorating them. They can take them home on Easter after Mass.  


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. 


CRS Encounter Lent 

Encounter the Risen Christ 


We prayed, fasted and gave alms—and now we celebrate Easter joy! Our Lenten journey with CRS Rice Bowl challenges us as we encounter our Risen Lord to bring the hope of Resurrection to a world in need. Don’t forget to turn in your CRS Rice Bowl to collection basket next weekend, April 27th & 28th
