 A Note from Your Deacon:

In the gospel reading this past Sunday, Jesus invited us to come to him and rest.  As I thought more about this, the thought came to me that one of the best ways for our souls to rest is to go on a retreat. In the Catholic tradition, a retreat is a time to take a break from the harried and hectic everyday lives we live and go to atmosphere of quiet, peace and prayer.  In this setting, men and women   are encouraged to discover and respond generously to God's personal invitation to wholeness and holiness.

A retreat is a time to get away and spend time with God; an opportunity to renew and refresh oneself through prayer and reflection.  A retreat is a place of renewal for those who are overburdened, a refuge for those who are weary, wisdom for those who are seeking, and safe sanctuary for those who are questioning.  There are different kinds of retreats that are available.  Some retreats are very structured and can include a prepared program of talks by a selected speaker.  Other retreats may be more silent and reflective.  I can share with you through experience that when you think you are too busy to go on a retreat, that is usually the time when a retreat is really needed.  There is a suggested donation for retreats but most retreat houses believe that money should not be an obstacle to the spiritual journey and financial assistance may be available. 

We have several fine retreat houses in our area and would like to invite you to go to their websites and see if there is something of interest.  I have attended the three below and highly recommend them.

1.  Norbertine Center for Spirituality- located at St. Norbert’s Abbey in DePere , WI.-

2. The Jesuit Retreat House on Lake Winnebago- located on the southern shore of Lake Winnebago-

3.  St. Anthony Spirituality Center- located in Marathon, WI. - >>

A retreat can be as simple as attending an evening spiritual program, participating in a day of reflection, or taking several retreat days for silence and reflection.  Of added interest, I have found the food offered at these retreat centers to be of highest quality and taste.  

I encourage you consider making a retreat someday and ask you to also consider these words of Jesus as addressed to you:

“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while”   (Mark 6:31).

In His mercy, 

Deacon Mark




Youth Talk

  Youth Talk

  We begin this portion for the bulletin to create an avenue for the youth ministry to be involved in our Church-community, to voice out their minds and give them the opportunity to be enriched in their spiritual life.

  The next youth night is Wednesday, July 26, from 5:00-8:00pm.  If it rains, the gathering is rescheduled for Wednesday, August 2nd at the same time.  All young people, 6th grade and older, are welcome.

Let us pray every one’s whole hearted collaboration may lead us to a harmonious, fruit-filled community of believers, faithful people of God.

Journeying with you all,

 Fr. Joel and Fr. Francis, Missionaries of Faith

Same Thing, Different Names

The Mass: A slice at a Time

The Liturgical Year

When you think of a year, probably the calendar year or maybe the academic year pops into your head. But the Church has a special year, called the Liturgical Year, to mark the celebration of her liturgies. The liturgical year celebrates God’s time, which is eternal and timeless. We do this by remembering the past, celebrating the present, and looking toward the future. The liturgical year is built around important historical events such as Jesus’ birth, Death and Resurrection in which God’s saving power was made real. The liturgies in the liturgical year help us remember God’s saving power made real in those historical events. They celebrate that God is saving us in the present moment, and they look forward to the time when God’s plan of salvation will reach its ultimate fulfillment in Christ future Parousia (Second Coming). So the seasons of the Liturgical Year are: Advent, Christmas, Ordinary Time, Lent and Holy Week and Easter Season.
