     Father Joel's            

 Hello friends!

The last sentences of our first reading today from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah “Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord, for he has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked”, invite us all to thank the Lord for his continuous marvelous deeds. 

I would like to take the words “poor” and “wicked” and give a certain context in line with our weekly theme: Disciples on the Way (Youth) – Safe.

Our young people, maybe some or few or many of them, in a certain sense, are in that category of the “poor” when they are not taught about God and never guided to know Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life. They attend yes, many comprehensive developmental programmed activities to gain deeper and more knowledge about this world’s ways of addressing present things and current events; to enhance skills necessary for life in this passing world. But why is it that in spite of the continuous advancement of technology and science, we sense among our young people, maybe not in general, a sense of- out of direction, uneasiness, discord and things that you know? As if, in order to thrive, they need to be tough themselves and believe only in themselves and trust no one because it’s no longer safe to trust, even his or her own family members, sometimes. Wickedness is all around. But Jeremiah reminds us to “praise the Lord for he has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked”. Not attending to the spiritual welfare of our young today is a kind of wickedness that they suffer a lot emotionally, psychologically, mentally and physically. My dear parents, please continue to be what you are entrusted to be to your children: God’s mouth, eyes, loving presence, guiding light. Bring them to Jesus to know him, love him and serve him. He knows your life struggles and so don’t be upset when things don’t go right the way you want it. Some friend reminds me that when nothing goes right, go left. He, the Lord, will surely answer us in his great love. Just continue to show him trust, hope and faith. We are his disciples on the way to engage our young people to join us thanking, praising and worshipping Him. Be God’s way of keeping safe your children and our young today. And by doing so, we are just acknowledging Him before others. God bless!!!

Co-traveler, Fr. Joel





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.

  On June 14, due to weather, we did not gather. We will be rescheduling youth night. Stay tuned for date, time and location.

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 


                                      Faith Formation News

We will be starting Faith Formation again in September.  Registration forms for the 2017-2018 

session are available in the main entrance of church and will be available at the St. 

Michael’s Festival on July 9th.  Remember to keep God with you this SUMMER!

 If any students are looking for volunteer hours, we can use you at our Picnic. 


Mass: A Slice At a Time

Same Thing, Different Names

While most Christians are familiar with the term “Mass”, there are many different ways to refer to the same thing. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), in paragraphs 1328-1332, refers to many different names for the Eucharist, or Eucharistic celebration.

It is sometimes called The Lord’s Supper or the Breaking of the Bread. These terms show its intrinsic connection with the Last Supper. Because the Eucharist is celebrated communally, it is sometimes referred to as the Eucharistic assembly.

Because “it makes present the one sacrifice of Christ the Savior and includes the Church’s offering,” we call it The Holy Sacrifice, or Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The Eucharist is also called The Holy and Divine Liturgy, or sometimes simply The Liturgy. This comes from a Greek word meaning “public work” or “the work of the people”. This differentiates the public aspect of the Eucharist from private prayers.

Other expressions are The Sacred Mysteries, The Most Blessed Sacrament and Holy Communion. Finally, we refer to the Eucharistic celebration as the Holy Mass, a word that comes from the Latin “missa”, a form of a word that means “to send forth.”

Looking for someone to play the guitar or piano to accompany the cantor at 5:00 pm Mass on Saturday. If interested, please contact the parish office 715-799-3811.

Welcome Visitors”


We are happy you have chosen to attend Mass at St. Anthony’s and St. Michael’s. We hope you feel that you are among friends. If you are considering joining our parish, please talk with Fr. Joel or call the Parish Office. Welcome and God Bless!



2017-2018 fiscal year sacrificial giving envelopes are available in the front entrance of church. If you cannot find a box with your name, please contact the Parish Office at 715-799-3811.   Thank you in advance for picking your envelopes up. 



St. Michael’s has 131 registered families with 72 contributing units (parish households who contribute $100.00 or more annually).  St. Anthony has over 200 registered families with 21 contributing units.  All Catholics should keep in mind: the Church is NOT a charity and our spiritual family and a Christian has a moral obligation to support his or her parish—at whatever level is appropriate for each person and family.   



If you know anyone who is in need of our prayers, please contact one of the following in our Kateri Prayer Circle:  Fay 715-799-3437, Evy 715-799-6031 or Leatha 715-994-1098.

THE COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER in Keshena offers an array of classes including budgeting, preparing for employment, organization basics and much more. Classes are open to the general public. Call 715-799-5137 for more information.


Catholic Communication Campaign. Thank you for your generosity to last week’s collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). Your support will help the CCC connect millions of people with Christ and spread the gospel message. If you missed the collection, it’s not too late to give. Visit, and click on the “How to Give” link on the left. 


The cemetery crucifix and altar have finally been painted and look absolutely wonderful.  Connie and Don Steudel, volunteers from Hope Community Church came out last Saturday to complete this long needed project.



We received $2150.85 for the Cross at St. Joseph Cemetery.  I would like to thank each and every one of you, who found it in your hearts to help with this project.


The original company we were going to order from has gone out of business.  Therefore, we needed to order the corpus from another company.  The asking price for the same kind of statue is $2135.00, but we did receive 15% off.  As this amount is twice the original cost, we are in need of about $500.00 to cover the cost of paint, repairs to the two statues of Mary and St. John and putting Jesus back onto the cross.  Please look into your hearts and help as much as you can. 

Yours in Christ

Delberta Pethke

A small three drawer dresser has been donated to St. Michael’s Family Picnic for their silent auction from the family of Fred and Lizzie Ramsdell, who treasured it for many years.  This dresser was made by a Franciscan, Brother Dave. The Franciscans were here at St. Michael’s Parish from 1880 to 1980.   Brother Dave was here during boarding school days and was remembered for his handyman skills and toys that he would make for the children out of a chunk of wood.  Brother Dave is buried at St. Michael’s Cemetery.   The dresser will be on display in Barrett Hall after all Masses and can be bid on during our Picnic. There are also a few other items on display that will be in the Silent Auction.



M Hear about the Menominee People and Forests.  Historic Preservation and Menominee Forestry will share the History of our Tribe and care of our tribal forest.  Learn what sustainable development is and why our forest has more board feet than when the Tribe began caring for it.

It’s time to “GROW A ROW” AND “SHARE THE BOUNTY”!  These programs are hunger prevention programs which allow gardeners to bring their excess produce to drop off sites where it is distributed to families and individuals who can use it. There is no paper work for the recipient. It is a “win-win” situation because recipients get healthy food and gardeners know their produce will not be wasted.  Drop off is 1st & 3rd Monday – 11 am to 1 pm and 1st & 3rd Tuesday 11 am – 2 pm. Pick up is 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month, 1-3 pm. This is for St. Michael’s Food Pantry.
