A Note From Your Deacon

 by Deacon Mark Fuller

The days of October are coming quickly to an end and at the same time I will also end my first month of bulletin  reflections.  It has been a pleasant joy to write these simple jottings for the four parishes.  

This past week, I took was walking outdoors and I found  myself gazing at a brilliance  of autumn colors,  delighting in  fresh forest aroma, and soaking in the beauty of God’s creation.  Indeed, “the world is full of the grandeur of God” (G.M. Hopkins).   

And of course, the greatest of God’s creation is human life.  This is why the Catholic Church observes October as  “Respect Life Month.”  Cardinal Sean O’Malley,  in his 2014 Respect Life Month Statement references Pope Francis and shares that  “Pope Francis has conveyed that “even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect.” We see Pope Francis living out the truth of these words in his actions.”  As this Year of Mercy comes to a close, may we too live mercy in our lives by respecting and caring for those most vulnerable in our society. 

Upon further reflection:

The preacher’s five year-old daughter noticed that her deacon father always paused and bowed his head for a moment before starting his homily.  One day she asked him why.

“Well, honey,” he began, proud that his daughter was so observant, “I’m asking the Lord to help me preach well.”

“How come he never answers your prayer?” she asked guilelessly.   

(From-Sheridan, Deacon Tom. The Second Book of Catholic Jokes. Chicago: ACTA Publications. 2010.)

In His Mercy, 


Deacon Mark





It was great to see the parents/guardians on Wednesday night to talk briefly about why it is important to make reading the Bible a part of our everyday life. 

The next Parent/Guardian Night is January 25th and the topic will be “Understanding the Mass.” All are welcome! 

The children’s topic this week was “Friendship.” The story of Zacchaeus was read and discussed how Jesus showed Zacchaeus love and how we are to follow way of Jesus. The children made a small poster listing Jesus Knows My Name.

REMEMBER! On this Tuesday, November 1st, ALL SAINTS’ DAY, a day of Holy Obligation, the children will be participating in the 6:00 pm Mass. The children need to come to Barrett Hall at 5:30 pm prior to Mass.


We were very happy to welcome two more children this week to our Faith Formation Classes. There is still time to sign up your child to join us in our religious education program. Come on Wednesday night at 5:45 to enroll you child or call me at 715-851-2947.


God bless,


Lois Maczuzak
