We are a Christian community called together to grow in faith and to celebrate God’s love for us in the Mass and Sacraments of the Catholic Church.  Through the gospel message and our common worship we are challenged to give Christian witness by our lives and service to others.

       Posoh! and welcome to St. Michael Church in the land of the Menominee Nation.

Disciples on the way is the focus of our beloved bishop pastoral program in response to the paternal invitation of our Holy Father, Pope Francis, who has given us a very clear example of what it means to live the so called: The New Evangelization- “Re-proposing Jesus Christ” by living our daily lives following Christ, is what it means to live out the new evangelization. It also means reintroducing others to Christ, especially to people we know; our family members, friends, and others with whom we work, recreate and share life. The journey is tough and we face adversities along the way that certainly lessen our faith. But Jesus is the Lord over the forces of nature as well as the storms in our hearts and the storms in our souls.  When terrible things happen, the question arises: To whom or to what do we turn? Some turn to alcohol and drugs and still others, in anger and shake their fists at God. Following Jesus is hard, yes it is. We can have a tough go of it from time to time. It’s easy enough to have faith at Christmastime or when everything is going well for us, but what about our faith when a loved one dies, or we are told that we have cancer or when nightly news overwhelms us with horrific events in Middle East or a mass shooting? In such times, we should turn to our Lord Jesus Christ who, when he was about to suffer his terrible death, cried out to our Father: Not my will but thine be done. Yes, to have faith in times of adversity is not easy, nor is it a quick fix. But that faith in times of adversity cannot help but win the God the Father’s heart. Ultimately, Jesus rose from the dead. So, what better hope could we have? We must always keep in mind that our hope is based on faith. Hope springs forth from faith, and without faith we cannot have a well-founded hope. Without faith we are left with empty, wishful thinking. So, in this missionary journey into The New Evangelization of our diocese let us continue to touch base with our own faith and ask: How is my faith going on especially in times of adversity? Where am I in my life-faith journey? How do I share my faith? How engaged am I in living out my faith as a member of a bigger family, my Church?

God bless us all.

Wow!  I can’t believe that the 4th of July is here already.  Happy Birthday America!  The summer is flying by and time for Children’s Religious Education will be here soon.  St. Michael’s is looking for eager volunteers to help out with our wonderful program.  It is easy to do and the benefits are endless, the smiles on our young ones faces as they enhance their faith.  It is so easy to become a catechist!  We provide the lesson plans and all the supplies that are needed.  If you are considering to help us, please, give me a call or talk to me after Sunday’s mass.  Thank you.   God bless,

Summer Fun

    Here is a fun activity that can be easy and fun to do.  Paint rocks:  Mix a few drops of liquid soap into the tempera paint. The soap will help the paint stick to the rock.


Here are several ideas for the rocks. One idea would be to have the children paint their names and dates of Baptism on the outside of the rock. Two paint rocks and decorate your garden with them.  Another idea would be to paint the rock and make it a gift to a special someone as a paper weight.  Let your imagination go wild!


  Calling young people of St. Michael’s to volunteer to become acolytes, servers at the altar. Once you have received your First Communion you can become a server. It is easy and very rewarding. Call me or the rectory for more information or talk to me after Sunday’s mass!   God bless,    Lois Maczuzak

COMMITTEE INFORMATION   (Continued from last week)    

G.  Multiple Parishes

1. Consolidated Meetings: For a pastor who has responsibility for two or more parishes, consideration should be given to the feasibility of meeting with multiple pastoral councils at the same time and place, beginning with common prayer and common tasks before breaking into individual pastoral councils. The pastor then rotates from meeting to meeting. 

2. Alternate Meetings: Another option for consideration is the scheduling of meetings of pastoral councils on alternate months. 

3. Presence at Meetings: See section III.H for guidelines. 

4. Subcommittees: All subcommittees of all parishes involved in a multiple parish configuration are strongly encouraged to cooperate and collaborate together. 

Appendix – Basic Church Teachings

The Parish

The parish is a certain community of Christian faithful stably constituted in a particular church, whose pastoral care is entrusted to a pastor (parochus) as its proper pastor under the authority of the diocesan bishop. 

Code of Canon Law, 515.

“The parish is the presence of the church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration.”

Pope Francis – Evangelii Gaudium 2013


“The parish is a definite community of the Christian faithful established on a stable basis within a particular church; the pastoral care of the parish is entrusted to a pastor as its own shepherd under the authority of the diocesan bishop.” It is the place where the faithful can be gathered together for the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. The parish initiates the Christian people into the ordinary expression of the liturgical life; it gathers them together for the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist.
