Hello everyone!

Wonderful things are happening in our parishes and the credit is all for the workings of the Holy Spirit. I am very happy and proud to welcome Deacon Mark Fuller to our parishes, St. Michael, St. Anthony and St. Francis. Truly when God moves, it is always for our good. Deacon Fuller was ordained Saturday the 14th of May 2016 at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Green Bay by our beloved Bishop David Ricken. Deacon Mark with his family resides in Shawano and he opted and chose to serve the Reservation Catholic Churches and community. I do believe it is the Holy Spirit, source of every inspiration and strength, who molded and formed him to continue serving these communities and therefore we have to be thankful to Deacon Mark for heeding the Call of religious service and say his BIG YES, LORD, I WILL GO!  Thank you very much Deacon Mark for choosing our churches where you wanted to serve. Thanks also to your wife Patty and children for supporting your intent and decision to become a PERMANENT DEACON. You are truly a great blessing to me and to us all. My friends and co-travelers, Deacon Mark will be assisting this weekend masses at all three parishes.  Please stop and introduce yourself to him after mass. 

Deacon MARK WELCOME ABOARD!!!! God bless you and your family.

Prayer of Welcome


Lord, our God, source of all life,
you reveal yourself in the depths of our being
drawing us to share in your life and love.
Bless each of us as we respond to your Spirit’s
invitation to open wide the doors to Christ.
Make the doors of our hearts,
our homes and communities
wide enough to receive
all who need human love and fellowship,
narrow enough to shut out all envy,
prejudice and pride.
Let us hasten to welcome the stranger,
and so welcome your Son.
We make this prayer in his name,
Jesus Christ, our Lord.



Your Co-Traveler,       

 Father Joel



Wow! Where did the time go, Faith Formation classes are over for the year. But never fear, we will be back next September with another year of helping parents to enhance their children’s Catholic faith. Registration forms are available in the front entrance of church. 

We are seeking volunteers to help with our program. We are always in need of more catechists. Think about your role here at St. Michael and what you can do to grow our faith. Maybe your call is to help the young people to learn more about being a Catholic. We have the lessons and materials ready to be used. This year prior to the start of Faith Formation, Religious Education, we will have a short informative meeting on what a catechist is, and what we offer here at St. Michael’s. More information about this meeting will be available as we get closer to the start of Faith Formation, Religious Education. If you have any questions about the Faith Formation, Religious Education,

Program, call me at 715-851-2947. 

Bring your Faith Home now that the weather is finally starting to cooperate and warm up. Why not plant a Mary Garden. It’s always fun to plant and tend a garden; this one is themed to honor the Blessed Mother. You can build the garden around an outdoor statue, making Mary the heart of the garden. Choose flowers that are associated with the Blessed Mother in art, or plant a blue-and-white garden or a rose garden. This can become a special place for family members to gather and pray. Plant a vegetable garden and as you tend to it daily say a prayer to Mother Mary, for her intercession to help you do your very best and always say YES to living your Catholic faith. 

CALLING ALL YOUNG ADULTS OF ST. MICHAEL’S PARISH!!!! If you are in  high school from St. Michael’s, mark your calendar NOW! We need for you to step forward and volunteer to help out at your parish Picnic on Sunday, July10th after the 9:00 mass. Your help is needed with the games and fun activities we are planning. Please, set a good example for our young ones and volunteer! Put your faith into action! More information as we get closer to the date! Mark your calendar, NOW!  


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,

COMMITTEE INFORMATION   (Continued from last week)    


GUIDED BY FAITH AND PRAYER: All deliberations by parish leaders should be guided by a spirit of prayer, openness to the Holy Spirit, and be in accord with the Diocesan policies and initiatives, as well as the teachings of the Catholic Church. CONSULTATION WITH TOTAL PARISH COMMUNITY:  When faced with a major parish issue or concern, all members of the parish should be provided with an opportunity to learn more about the concern and have an opportunity to share with parish leaders, their reactions and suggestions for dealing with it. THE COUNCIL IS CONSULTATIVE TO THE PASTORAL LEADER: Decisions of the pastoral council are made in prayerful dialogue and discussion with the pastor. If there is disagreement between the pastor and the council, final authority rests with the pastor (see Appendix – Canon 536). In those instances where the pastor cannot accept the recommendations of the pastoral council, he should provide the council with an explanation. CONSENSUS DECISION MAKING: This kind of decision making is not based on a unanimous vote, but rather the recommendations of a strong majority. Minority opinions are valued and serious efforts are made to include minority concerns in the decisions which are made. However, once a decision is made, it is expected that for the common good of the parish, all will support it as best they can. OPEN MEETINGS AND EXECUTIVE SESSIONS: Notice of all meetings should be posted and parishioners are welcome to attend. When necessary, the pastoral council may go into executive session to discuss sensitive matters. Decisions should be made in an open meeting and recorded in the minutes following the executive session.  MEDIATION ASSISTANCE: In rare circumstances when a pastoral council and pastor are not able to work together or achieve consensus on significant concerns, the pastor/administrator or members of the pastoral council may contact the Regional Vicar for assistance in mediating the issue. LOSS OF PASTOR: At the transfer, retirement, resignation or death of the pastor, the pastoral council will work with the Temporary Administrator assigned by the Bishop. IN ABSENCE OF PASTOR: In those exceptional instances when the pastor is unable to attend a meeting, with the permission of the pastor, the pastoral council may meet. However, no action or recommendation by the council at such a meeting may be undertaken without the subsequent review and approval of the action by the pastor. 





St. Michael’s received a grant from The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Inc. for Lifelong Catechesis in the amount of $6,300.00.  This money will help subsidize the $12,600.00 that our parish owes to Sacred Heart for our students to attend their school.

THRIFT & GIFT: Is in need of towels.  Please drop them off at the Parish Office or at church. Thrift & Gift is open the first and third Tuesday of the Month and at cookouts, etc.

FOOD PANTRY: We will be open the first and third Tuesday of the month. 


July 10th after 9:00 mass. (Note change in mass time that day).  If you would like to volunteer your time or talent, please contact Tim or Kathryn Lohmiller Co-Chairs 715-526-9385.   


Silent Auction - Donations needed!

The Silent Auction committee is looking for donated items for this year's Parish Picnic. You can donate any Creative items, Gift Certificates, Store Gift Cards, Sporting Event Tickets or sponsor a donation for purchasing items for the auction. Items may be dropped off at the Parish office or contact Nancy & Joe Michel 715-799-5044, Judy & Dennis Jansen 715-799-4586 or Kathy & Tim Lohmiller 715-526-9385.


St Michael's Parish Pastoral Council Meeting June 7, 2016 at 5:30 pm Barrett Hall

Thank you to those who have donated to Home Missions on Pentecost Sunday. There are still envelopes in the pews if you wish to make a donation. 


Thank you to Pat Gwidt, Karen Lynch, Cookie Vigue, Tim Lohmiller and Victoria Minch for their service on the Pastoral Council. 




How do we get people from St. Michael’s to pray for special intentions and the sick? As you enter the church from the back, there is a notebook next to the bread and wine table.  This notebook is called the Book of Concerns.  If you wish the parish to pray for someone, write your prayer intention in this notebook. The book is brought to the altar with the bread and wine. There is also petition for all those mentioned in the Book of Concerns in the Prayers of the Faithful.  


St. Anthony Trustee Elections –June 11th & 18th

Trustee Election Days during 4:00 pm Mass at St. Anthony.  Please attend one of these two Masses if you are a member of St. Anthony’s  and would like to cast your vote for their new Trustees.

The Knights of Columbus served 132 guests at Mother’s Day breakfast.  Thank you Knights for your generosity in sponsoring this breakfast.
