Hello everyone!

Gratia et gaudium in fide!

  The way of light: any man who is bent on reaching his appointed goal must be very careful in all he does. Now these are the directions that have been given to us for this journey: love your Creator; reverence  your Maker; give glory to him who redeemed you when you were dead; be single-minded but rich in spiritual treasure; avoid those who travel down death’s highway; hate whatever is displeasing to God; detest all hypocritical pretense; do not abandon God’s commandments. Do not put on airs, but be modest whatever you do; claim no credit for yourself. Plot no evil against your neighbor, and do not give pride an entrance into your heart. 

Love your neighbor more than your own life. Do not kill an unborn child through abortion, nor destroy it after birth. Do not refrain from chastising son or daughter, but bring them up from childhood in the fear of the Lord. Do not set your heart on what belongs to your neighbor and do not give in to greed. Do not associate with the arrogant but cultivate those who are humble and virtuous. Accept as a blessing whatever comes your way in the knowledge that nothing ever happens without God’s concurrence. Avoid duplicity in thought or in word, for such deception is a deadly snare. 

Share with your neighbor whatever you have, and do not say of anything, this is mine. If you both share an imperishable treasure, how much more must you share what is perishable. Do not be hasty in speech; the mouth is a deadly snare. For your soul’s good, make every effort to live chastely. Do not hold out your hand for what you can get, only to withdraw it when it comes to giving. Cherish as the apple of your eye anyone who speaks to you of the word of the Lord. Night and day you will bear in mind the hour of judgment; every day you will seek out the  company of God’s faithful, either by preaching the word, earnestly exhorting them, ever considering how you can save souls by your eloquence, or else by working with your hands to make reparation for your past sins. 


Never hesitate to give, and when you do give, never grumble; then you will know the one who will repay you. Preserve the traditions you have received, adding nothing and taking nothing away. The evildoer will ever be hateful to you. Be fair in your judgments. Never stir up dissension, but act as peacemaker and reconcile the quarrelsome. Confess yours sins, and do not begin to pray with a guilty conscience. Such then is the way of light. Have a great weekend!




   Seven weeks till Faith Formation Classes start!  Classes begin on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00 pm.  Registration forms are available in the front of the church. You can turn the completed form at the parish office or put it in the box next to the registration forms in the front of the church.  It is very helpful to have the registrations forms in prior to classes beginning so we can better plan for this years classes. If you have any questions be sure to call me at 715-851-2947.  This year part of our program has a parent/guardian component.  Throughout the Faith Formation year we will have a few sessions about our Catholic faith.  

   Keeping in mind the success of the Faith Formation Classes are the volunteer catechist! It is not hard to become a catechist.  First, you have to have the desire to grow our Catholic faith.  Secondly, you have to be willing to give up some of your time to put your faith into action.  Thirdly, you need to take a session on Protecting God’s Children.  You are provided with all of the lessons and supplies that you need to help the children to enhance their faith.  As you can see it is as easy as one, two, three!  I am asking all of you to pray about this and listen to hear if God is calling you to help.  

Summer Fun

Can you believe it the start of the new school year is just around the corner.  Here is an idea that helps to end the summer in a fun way.  Make a mini time capsule.  Take a jar and put inside slips of paper of what was the most fun times of the summer.  Also put in slips of papers of goals for the coming school year.  Then bury the jar to be dug up at the beginning of next summer.  You could decorate the jar and even have the entire family add to the Mini Time Capsule.   





God bless,


Lois Maczuzak

Why aren’t heaven’s gates open to all of humanity?

If God loves everyone, 

Why aren’t all of us saved?

When we picture heaven, we imagine a place where everyone is happy, loving, and at peace. If this is perfect bliss, then why wouldn’t the Lord send everyone there? It is certainly a loving attitude to desire that all of our friends, family and community enjoy the victory of union with the Trinity. When Jesus died and rose, he opened the door for all of humanity to enter eternal life. If we want everyone to be saved, and God wants every to be saved, what could possibly keep a person outside the Pearly Gates?

The answer lies in the very nature of God’s love for us. Not everyone is saved because God wants us to choose salvation freely. While a person who loves God and willingly obeys his commands will find the kingdom blissful, a person choosing pride or selfishness would not.  Would heaven really be paradise if people could choose to be bullies, murderers, or abusers?  If I reject God’s love because I don’t want anyone telling me what to do, I would not freely submit myself to the Lord’s authority. God has given us free will, and that means we are free to reject him and his kingdom.  For heaven to be heaven, everyone there must be submissive to God’s will and each other.  Jesus loves us too much to force us to be saved. 

Fr. Matthew Bonk, CSsR
