NOTE FROM YOUR DEACON by Deacon Mark Fuller

 On New Year’s Day, I had the privilege of joining Fr. Joel for Mass at the South Branch Community Center.  We were there as a way of outreach to this community, which used to have an active parish church but which has now been closed for many years.  There was real warmth received from those present and a real gladness to have Mass said again in this community.  There was also the added joy of having 13 older children baptized into the Catholic faith.  I have never been present for so many being baptized and Fr. Joel made sure everything went smoothly, in spite of the deacon who kept calling out the names for baptism for those who were not present that day. 


For me, there was something deeply moving about witnessing this sacrament.  It might be, knowing that this sacrament of baptism begins our journey of faith; baptism is the starting point for living the fullness of life in Christ.  As each child came to the baptismal fount, with their smiling parents and godparents, all those present were able to witness grace-filled moments of faith, teaching that each of us is united to one another through our baptism, by being brought into the family of God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and we become members of the Body of Christ.  “This is our faith. This is the faith of the Church.  We are proud to profess it, in Christ Jesus our Lord” (From the Rite of Baptism for Children).  It was a great way to begin the New Year!


Upon Further Reflection:


A bishop, a priest and a deacon were about to be executed for preaching the gospel and baptizing in a foreign land.

They bring out the bishop first and the guard shouts, “Ready…aim…” and suddenly the bishop yells, “EARTHQUAKE.”  When everyone looks around, the bishop runs off.

Next they bring out the priest.  The guard shouts, “Ready…aim…” and suddenly the priest yells, “TORNADO.”  When everyone ducks, the priest runs off.

By then, of course, the deacon has it figured out.  They bring him out and when the guard shouts, “Ready…aim…”  Suddenly the deacon yells, “FIRE.”

 FAITH FORMATION UPDATE

Due to the poor weather this past week, enrollment to the Religious Education Classes will remain open for one more week.  Wednesday, January 18th is the last chance to enroll your children. If you want your child to participate in receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion, you need to enroll your child in the Faith Formation program on Wednesday, January 18th. The classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:15. Attendance for these sacraments is imperative and instructions begin January 18th! Call me or come to Barrett Hall to sign up your child. If you have any questions about our program, please call me at 715-799-4826. (Please note that phone number has been changed!) If you have any suggestions on how to improve our program, e-mail me at maczuzak@frontiernet.net and title the e-mail improving the program. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome! 


God bless,

Lois Maczuzak

 PAILS FOR HAITI

Orphan Grain Train volunteers at St. James Lutheran Church in Shawano are excited to announce a special project to help the people of Haiti recover after Hurricane Matthew. They will be collecting new or slightly used five (5) gallon pails to be shipped to the people of Haiti. Kick off will be January 1st and run for 30 days. The pails are used by Haitian people to bring clean drinking water from the mountain area into the villages.  Clean drinking water is crucial for Haiti with the spread of cholera.    Pails can be dropped off at St. James Lutheran Church, 324 S.
