In the light of the Bishop’s Appeal information in our parish bulletin, may I just make a piece of note in line with it…

Basically, the Bishop’s Appeal is NOT personally for the bishop’s interest. It is the initiative of the Diocese of Green Bay, WI as a source mainly for Catholic Charities and many other programs of the diocese. Our participation, cooperation and generosity is very essential for this advocacy of our diocese. It is also one concrete way to fulfill our Christian work as we share our very self as a whole.

On behalf of Fr. Joel our parish administrator, we are grateful for your positive response to this endeavor and we are confident with your unconditional support as we continue to inspire other people to get involved in our Church’s social awareness and services. 

May God bless you now and always… journeying with you as Disciples of Christ,

Fr. Francis, m.f.

Thus says the LORD: Share your bread with the hungry, shelter the oppressed and homeless;  do not turn your back on your own. … if you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday.” Isaiah 58: 7-10




Letting their light shine was the message during our classes this past week.  The children enjoyed two videos about what the meaning of “Letting Your Light Shine” and message on “Forgiving” that reinforced those messages.  The attendance improved by one this past Wednesday, we had 15 children attending.  Since it is difficult to obtain the correct number of how many children are hoping to receive their First Communion, a final count will be taken on Wednesday, February 15th.  If you have any questions about our Children’s Sacramental Program, please, call me at 715-799-4826. 

Because this year we have very few young children participating in our Faith Formation Program, the possibly of changing the format of the program is being considered.  Maybe change the day that the classes are offered or offering a family program is a better approach. 


 If any of you have ideas or suggestions that would help us to reach more of our families in better way of sharing our faith, please, let me know. We want to design our program that meets the needs of our families.  I can be reached by calling 715-799-4826 or e-mail me at  with your ideas or suggestions using the subject tag, My Suggestion. Thank you for all your help in this very important endeavor. In the front of church there are St. Michael Children’s Bulletins available.  These Children Bulletins are designed to help children to better understand the message of the Mass.  Check them out! God bless, Lois

Praying for Father Joel

Joel wants to thank all of you for the prayers. He will return on February 16th. If you have any questions or concerns contact Father Francis or Parish Office. 


BISHOP’S APPEAL KICK OFF:  The Bishop’s Appeal starts this weekend. The goal of St. Michael this year will be $6,102.00.  Please be generous in your donations.  Thank you. 

It is our continuing pledge to you to use all the funds received during the 2017 Bishop's Appeal to provide these services and meet the needs described on our web site at Thank you for your generous support of the Appeal.

Building Disciples of Christ:  Catholic Charities  

“Being a disciple means being constantly ready to bring the
 love of Jesus to others

The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis.

Jesus calls us to build people up, heal the broken, and bring love to everyone.  Catholic Charities works with individuals, families and communities to help them meet their needs and resolve their problems.

Catholic Charities is committed to bring social services to people of all faiths and ethnicities.  Thousands of individuals and families are helped each year in five offices throughout our 16-county diocese.  Many have little or no health insurance.  They offer programs in:

  • Individual and Family Counseling
  • Adoption, Pregnancy and Parenting Support
  • Family Strengthening
  • Financial Health


The counselors of Catholic Charities are Disciples of Christ.  Your gift to the Bishops’ Appeal allows Catholic Charities to bring the love of Christ to those who need it the most.  Make your gift today at, or call Debbie toll-free at  877-500-3580, ext. 8184.

The Burden of Debt

Life can be challenging.  There are times when people feel so lost.  They find help through Catholic Charities and the many programs and resources in our diocese.

Amanda was in an abusive relationship that took a toll on her physically, emotionally, and financially.  This relationship left her battered, bruised, and in severe debt.  Through God’s grace, Amanda found help from several organizations, including Catholic Charities Financial Health Program.  With guidance from Bobbie Lison, Financial Health Counselor, Amanda learned to manage her money, prepared a plan to pull herself out of debt, paid her debts on-time and became self-sufficient.

“Going from $20,000 in debt to no debt…it’s amazing.  It feels great,” says Amanda.

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal helps people like Amanda.  To make a gift today contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580, ext. 8184.
