Today, in the Gospel we are blessed with the communication of the sacred transfiguration of our dear Lord Jesus Christ. But what could be the meaning of this gospel communication in this second Sunday of our lenten penitential journey? 

We, as disciples on the way, are given the example by our Lord himself of a certain state of life with His Transfiguration that pertains to Him alone, manifesting His Divinity, in this same wounded and confused world of ours. He invites each one of us his disciples to be transformed from our old ways to one we are created for and meant for according to the Father’s will and design. 

One’s personal transformation though, is a journey itself and takes a lot of ups and downs as we all know very well. Our Lord Jesus’ Transfiguration is our shining and sure light and source of strength to go on in our life-faith journey through thick and thin, trusting the Providential hands of the Father that sustain us all the way to the end of our journey towards Jerusalem of Jesus’ self-emptying, again because of true love.


Fr. Joel, Mf  




We encounter Evelina in Zambia as she and other mothers in her community learn new ways to provide nutritious meals for their growing children and families. How do we ensure that those who are hungry have not only food but true nourishment? Visit for more.                         



This coming week the children will be very busy.  We will be making up for the class that was missed last week due to the strong winds.  The children will be concentrating what is in the church and learning about what goes on during the Mass.  Also the children will be learning about St. Patrick and the Shamrock and St. Joseph. 

Coming up in the Faith Formation classes during this Lenten season, the children will be baking Lenten prayer pretzels, making reminder cross bracelets, learning and praying the Stations of the Cross. They will also learn about Palm Sunday and what is the Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday). Due to only a small number of children receiving their First Communion this year, each of their families will be able to have individual celebrations.  The families of these children will be able to celebrate their children’s First Communion by together participating in the Eucharist at a Sunday Mass that they schedule with Father Joel.   




Since we have a low number children attending our program, we are seeking your help. If you have any suggestions on how to improve our program, and help families to educate their children about our Catholic faith, e-mail me at with title of improving the program. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome!

God bless,

Lois Maczuzak

St. Michaels will be saying Stations of the Cross during Lent, one-half hour before Mass starts on Saturday at 3:30 pm and Sunday at 8:00 am.  Stations of the Cross books will be available at the entrances to church.  Please return them after each Mass to be used the following week.  We are looking for someone to lead Sunday mornings. Please call Parish Office if you can help.

On the Fourth Sunday of Lent (March 25-26), we will sponsor a special collection for the World’s Poor. It combines an appeal for three agencies that serve the poor and those living on the edges of society all over the world. This includes the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Relief Services, and Peter’s Pence. In this collection, you have a choice to contribute to any one or all of the three funds, by designating an amount for each. 

On Fire for the Lord

Many of us wonder where our faith journey may take us.  For Julianne Stanz her faith journey took her from a little mountain village in Ireland to northeastern Wisconsin.  Her role as Director of the New Evangelization Department for the Diocese allows her to share our Catholic faith with adults of all ages through programs like Girlfriends in God, Catholic Campus Ministries, and Encounter for Young Adults.

“This work is tremendously important to me because it has impacted my own life on such a personal level,” Julianne says.  “I’ve seen the effects when people are energized in their faith.  They are really on fire for Christ and His teachings.”

Julianne’s work has impacted more than ten thousand people, and without the support of the Bishop’s Appeal, Julianne would be unable to bring Christ’s message to them.  

To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8184.

Helping Christians in the Holy Land:

Did you know funds collected in last year’s Good Friday Collection provide senior care facilities in Bethlehem and Nazareth, and provided 398 homes benefiting Christian families?  Your gift will make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land, who are in dire need of our help. Please consider supporting the Good Friday Collection with some of your Lenten almsgiving.


Welcome to our Catholic Family through Baptism Karleigha White, Hillary White, Lucas Boivin Jr., Liam Boivin and Hunter Boivin.
