It has become almost a cliché that when one loves another, one does everything if only to please the beloved. Some Bible scholars say that John 3:16 is perhaps the most popular verse in the New Testament, if not in the whole Bible. Any why not? For it summarizes who we are to God and how God sees and deals with us. God so loved the world, so loved us, He did not spare his own Son so that those who believe in him may not die but have eternal life. God did not spare his Son from the cross and death to show us to what extent God’s love goes for us. It is rightly so that the Church celebrates this 4th Sunday of Lent with joy because of that truth and she called this Sunday, Laetare Sunday, meaning Rejoice for the redemption is close at hand. And along with this message of joy, and because of that infinite love of God the Father, he continue to send his messengers. For all walks of life and all levels and situations we have his messengers and in turn we too are his messengers to other we love and serve. So, let’s continue to heed his voice of love and share that to others especially the poor in our midst.


The Mass – A slice at a time

The Mass consists in some sense of two parts, namely the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, these being so closely interconnected that they form but one single act of worship. For in the Mass is spread the table both of God’s Word and of the Body of Christ, and from it the faithful are to be instructed and refreshed. There are also certain rites that open and conclude the celebration.


Not Just Lent

Lent presents a special time to focus on our relationship with God. We spend much time discussing how to live properly during Lent.  Should we fast and on what days? Is doing Christian service more valuable than a personal sacrifice of food or fun?  And while these questions are worth consideration, their focus may be a bit too narrow. Instead take a moment to consider Matthew Henry’s quote: “The whole life of a Christian should be nothing but praises and thanks to God; we should neither eat nor sleep, but eat to God and sleep to God and work to God and talk to God.”  An excellent recipe for Lent and our daily Christian walk. 

Faith Formation Update

Color  Easter Egg Coloring

 

All children/parents are invited to color Easter Eggs on Mach 25th (Palm Sunday) after 9 am Mass in Barrett Hall.  Each child will be able to color some eggs and take them home. The remainder of the eggs will be given out after Mass on Easter Sunday.  Please join us!

Encounter Andrise 

We encounter Andrise, a teacher in Haiti who knows the importance of forming young people who will give back to the community – and their country. Reflect on the role teachers have played in bringing you closer to God and your community. How can you support those, worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities?  Visit crsricebowl.org for more. 


Bishop’s Appeal- How much of my gift actually goes to support people in need? 

Annually, 91 – 93% of your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal supports the ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay.  That is $.91 – $.93 cents of every $1.00.  Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal will help in countless ways. Care ministers are trained to go out and help the homebound and hurting members of their parish. Children and families are able to attend lively, interactive education programs learning the Word of God. A young woman in an abusive relationship is able, through counseling with Catholic Charities, to stand on her own two feet. Families seeking to adopt are connected with newborn babies.  Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes happy endings possible. To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Tammy toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8123.

Rural Life Day

March 22, 2018 10:30 am Sacred Heart Parish, Shawano

Bishop David Ricken invites everyone to celebrate and support Rural Life 2018 in the Diocese of Green Bay. Rural Life Day is an opportunity to: praise God's abundant generosity, have your soil, seeds, animals and machinery blessed, build community throughout the Diocese's rural communities. Meal tickets are $10 and must be purchased seven days before the event by calling Sacred Heart Parish at (715) 526-2023


World’s Poor Collection  

There will be a second collection today for World’s Poor. Envelopes are in each pew and can be put in the collection basket or returned next week. 


Stations of the Cross

We will have Stations of the Cross thirty minutes before Mass. Please return booklets each week. 


Easter Flowers

Parishioners are invited to make donations toward the purchase of Easter flowers in honor or memory of loved ones. Donation envelopes are located in the pews.  A list of donors will be published on Easter. 

 

Why “sacrifice” during Lent?

We sacrifice for the things that are important to us. As a nation we pay sacrifice in taxes, in laws and sometimes the blood of our children in order to make our country stronger and safer. Parents make little daily sacrifices for their children and many more difficult choices to secure their family’s future. We make sacrifices for loved ones, spouses, family, beloved friends. 


If we take our faith seriously we make sacrifices for God too. Sacrificing is an act of love. It shows how deeply we care. It reflects a heart filled with devotion, instead of selfish demands.  And in the act of sacrifice we get back far more than we have ever given. 


Stations of the Cross

We will have Stations of the Cross thirty minutes before Mass. Please return booklets each week. 


Easter Flowers

Parishioners are invited to make donations toward the purchase of Easter flowers in honor or memory of loved ones. Donation envelopes are located in the pews.  A list of donors will be published on Easter.


 

Thrift & Gift

Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Come help celebrate the Mass by joining us as a lector or Eucharistic minister on Saturday or Sundays.  Preparation is minimal and the rewards of this service are enriching and fulfilling. Please contact the Parish Office at St. Michaels if interested. (715) 799-3811.

Mass for the homebound: 

Mass services for the Homebound are offered by the following TV stations: WACY-TV- channel 32 at 8:00 am Sundays, WBAY-TV-channel 2 at 5:30 am on Sundays. Mass offered online at www.Heartofthenation.org. Check the website for times and dates.

 

The Burial Place 

 

There should be at least 18” of ground above the burial vault (or the vessel containing cremated remains) to allow for appropriate turf maintenance and minimal surface care.  It is becoming common practice to bury multiple urns containing cremated remains in a traditional single burial space and one or more urns containing cremated remains in a grave which already holds a full casket/vault. The cemetery committee should determine what is best for its operation and publish a “Burial Right Policy” in the official rules and regulations of the cemetery. Special attention must be given to both burial recordkeeping and the placing of memorials when multiple deceased persons occupy one burial space.

 

Mass for the homebound: 

Mass services for the Homebound are offered by the following TV stations: WACY-TV- channel 32 at 8:00 am Sundays, WBAY-TV-channel 2 at 5:30 am on Sundays. Mass offered online at www.Heartofthenation.org. Check the website for times and dates.
