KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS: Third Tuesday of the month – 7 pm,

Grand Knight Paul Marroquin 715-799-3765 














In today’s Gospel, Jesus is asked how many people will be saved. He warns that a place in the kingdom of God is not a given for those who hear him preach, or a birthright of the Jewish people. Jesus tells the people, strive to enter through the narrow gate, adding that many will not be strong enough. He then tells them that outsiders from other nations will enter the kingdom of God before them.

In this Year of Mercy, we celebrate that God gives us opportunity after opportunity to repent and strive again for holiness. We encourage people to go to confession and reclaim their Christian faith. We also acknowledge that our lives are not endless. If we do not strive for holiness in the time we are given, the door will eventually close.

Parents know this is true. Good parents encourage their children to study, ask their teacher questions, and do their homework diligently. Eventually, the test comes, and students who have prepared well are rewarded.

We hear of this kind of discipline in today’s second reading from Hebrews. We know that while we are being disciplined, it seems more like pain than joy. We also know that good parents discipline their children out of love. God loves us as sons and daughters, and therefore disciplines us so that we can be trained to live in peace and righteousness.

We have an opportunity here and now to get to know Jesus, to discipline ourselves and our children and strive to enter through the narrow gate. How do we respond?

The finest measure of how well we know Jesus is to examine how well we follow his example and his commands. In this year of Mercy, we are invited to focus in a special way on the seven corporal works of mercy; feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick and imprisoned, and bury the dead.

This week, reject the temptation toward selfishness by acting on the corporal works of mercy. Decide by yourself or with your family whether you might donate to a food pantry, give away gently used clothing, or find a way to visit someone who is lonely or ill. Take the opportunity to serve the kingdom of God now, before it is too late.

Have a blessed weekend my friend. God bless.


Co-Traveler, Fr. Joel 





Five Weeks and Faith Formation Classes Begin!!  

The time is now to sign up your child for Faith Formation Class!  Enrollment forms are in the front of church or available on line at under Religious Education.

NEW THIS YEAR!  This year we are having a few sessions for the parents to be able to enhance their faith.  These sessions will be held at the same time as the children will be attending their classes.  All are welcome to attend these sessions, Some of the topics will be “Sacraments: What are they and why?” ,“The Mass, what is going on?”, and “The bible, not just another good book”.  More information will be available as the time gets closer.  

Summer Fun

With school just around the corner, it is very beneficial for children to start getting ready for the school year.  Here are just an idea that can be helpful to start the school year with a positive attitude and it is fun to do.  Have the children make School Banners with their goals for the school year on them.  Have them decorate the banner and hang them in an area where they will be able to see and review as the year progresses.  Be sure that they make their goal/goals realistic and doable.  This is a great opportunity have a discussion with your child about what you expect and how you will help them to have a very successful school year. 

Also remember to havet them include saying a prayer each day as they start off to school.


God bless,

Lois Maczuzak
