Deacon Mark Writes


Today is World Mission Sunday, and let’s focus on the theme, taken from the Jubilee Year of Mercy, “Mercy changes the world. "Pope Francis encourages and reminds us, “The mercy of God is His loving concern for each one of us.... As the Father loves, so do His children. Just as He is merciful, so we are called to be merciful to each other.”

Today’s Psalm helps us see how important each of us is to the Lord, especially when we are in need. “The Lord hears the cry of the poor.... The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; and those who are crushed in spirit He saves” (Psalm 34:18-19). In our own families and communities, we can think of those who need our listening hearts, our kind compassion.  At the same time, there are those throughout the world who also cry out  for the Lord’s caring and peace.

On this World Mission Sunday, we are given a unique opportunity to “be merciful to each other,” as Pope Francis asks. At the Eucharistic celebration today, we offer our prayers “to pierce the clouds” (Sirach 35:21) for communities in need around our world and for the missionaries who serve them. We offer our financial help to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith to support that merciful outreach, and in support of the proclamation of the Good News of God’s great love to the ends of the earth.

We should also remember and be thankful for those missionaries in our midst,  Fr. Joel and Fr. Francis, who both belong to the Missionaries of Faith: Delegation of North America.  As of October 1, 2016 there are 21 priests and 2 professed students serving parishes in the USA and Canada.  We are grateful for their courage and persevering faith in sharing the Gospel message with us.

Upon Further Reflection:

During sharing at a parish retreat, a very wealthy man stood up and told about his faith.  “I’m a millionaire, he said, “and I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life.  I remember the turning point in my faith.  I had just earned my first dollar.  When I went to Mass that Sunday, the homilist was a missionary priest who told about his work.  I knew that I only had a dollar bill and had to either give it all to God’s work or nothing at all.  So at that moment I decided to give everything I had to God. I believe that God blessed that decision, and that is why I am a rich man today.”      The man finished his testimony and there was an awed silence at his words.  As he returned to his seat, a little old lady in the same pew leaned over and said to him, “I dare you to do it again!”      

(From -Sheridan, Deacon Tom. The Second Book of Catholic Jokes. Chicago: ACTA Publications. 2010.)

In His Mercy, 


Deacon Mark





This week the children watched a video about the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. The children then went to their classrooms to discuss the video and the meaning. New this week was the take home Parent Homework sheet. Father Joel requested that the parents be given an assignment each week to do with their children. This week’s assignment was on Our Mother Mary. The sheets had information about Mary to be discussed with their children at home, a teaching tool for the parents to share with their children.

This coming Wednesday is Parent/ Guardian Meeting Night. The children and the parents/guardians will start out together. Then the children will go to their classrooms and the parents/guardians will stay in Barrett Hall and have a discussion about “How To Read the Bible.”


We are blessed again this year to have to Packer Autographed Football to raffle off. Tickets are available from the families of Faith Formation and also available on this Sunday after the Mass during the Annual St. Michael’s Meeting in Barrett Hall. The tickets are 1 for a $1 or 6 for $5. The drawing will be after the Mass on November 1st after the All Saints Day Mass 6:00 pm Mass. The Faith Formation children will be participating in this Mass here at St. Michael’s in a very special way. Be sure to come and join in the celebr

If you have questions about the Faith Formation Program call me at 715-851-2947.

God bless,

Lois Maczuzak

Today is World Mission Sunday! In announcing his decision to declare a Holy Year of Mercy, Pope Francis said, “Dear brothers and sisters, I have often thought about how the Church might make clear its mission of being a witness to mercy.” Supporting the young churches throughout the world with your prayers and generous gifts is indeed a merciful witness of this mission. The collection today will help missionaries offer the poor of these areas practical help as they share the mercy of God. It will ensure the development of local dioceses, and support the work of priests, religious and lay leaders who serve those on the margins and in most need. Extend your merciful witness to the whole world through your gift in today’s collection for the Society for the Propagation of Faith!. 




Good things are happening around St. Michael’s.  Each week, we will spotlight a person, persons or group that that spotlight shines on.  If you know of someone from our parish that we need to recognize, please call or E-mail St. Michaels.  Thank you.
