   Working together With GOD. . .

At this point, we need to have a clear idea with the structure of our church. As a parish, our governing system is through our pastor/administrator/servant leader along with the pastoral council, finance council and lay leaders, in collaboration with the people of God. But as a Diocese, it is headed by the Bishop, in collaboration with all the Diocesan ministries and with all the pastors working together to ensure the welfare of every parish, to guide them through the Holy Spirit in facilitating every movement of it.

     This we must really understand, because whatever may transpire in our church, the Dioceses governing body wants to achieve perfectly its very vision and mission; that will only happen if we will are united in our hearts and minds as one Church of God, and if every member of it will do his/her part, and would cooperate with one another.

     We have begun bit by bit our gradual transformation of the system because it is the call of the present time we are in too, maybe because it seemed we are also outdated, we must have noticed that...and our initial reaction: "what's with the change?...for some, they reason out that it had been 'nice' before, why is the diocese doing something 'new'? For example, a priest after being at the parish for several years as pastor will be transferred then to another parish. The priest himself cannot take the decision lightly, and there is always a resistance, especially if he doesn’t want to leave the parish anymore. On the part of the parishioners, they would feel the same, some will have grudges against the move; "I will no longer attend Mass, 'cuz father is our priest no more"...Did you remember, sometime in His teaching, the Lord said that; BEFORE it was said "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" but NOW I say to you "love your enemies" "forgive those who have wronged you”. I may have just arrived and took foot on your ground, I may not have any idea of what's really going on, and I’m not assuming anything, but the move of the Diocese whatever it is, is I think something more beneficial than what was before...It may look different to us, because maybe it really pays to make a difference after all.

     My dear brethren, whatever our Diocese is doing now, let us leave it to their wisdom/council, I believe they know what to do, and they are doing it for the welfare of all, for the good of our faith, for the best of our church according to the will of God...We just need to be open minded, let us just be submissive, that is how we can be righteous and true followers and disciples of Christ, but at the same time let us collaborate, we are all workers in the vineyard of God. The Lord gave us the capacity accordingly to participate in this labor, He doesn’t want us to be "idle all day long". Let us not think of what will be given us in return today, because be assured that there is something special waiting for us in the end.


     Concluding my articles for this month, join me in this prayer; 

Lord GOD we know that following you is obviously difficult but you said to us not to be afraid, we know that working with/for you is never an easy task, but you said "my burden is light"; thank you Lord, for this given opportunity to respond to your call. Help us to keep our enthusiasm burning, to SERVE your church you have left us to make manifest your love you showed to mankind. Protect us from the contagious PRIDE that lingers always in every situation we are involved with, keep us HUMBLE always in your sight, and above all, may we always remain FAITHFUL to you O Lord, in your name, forever and ever...Amen,
Fr. Francis, mf 





This week the youngest ones learned about Creation.  They have a Creation Booklet to finish at home.  The 3rd and 4th Graders learned about the Works of Mercy.  The older students talked about learning and living their faith.  All the students watched a short video about this week’s Gospel of Lazarus and the Rich Man.  We gladly welcomed more children this week.  It is great to see our enrollment increase!    IT’S NOT TOO LATE! If you want your child to be a part of this wonderful opportunity, you still have the chance to sign up your child for this years’ sessions of religious education.  Classes take place on Wednesday nights starting at 6:00 pm to 7:15 pm in Barrett Hall.  If you have any questions or concerns about our program call me at 715-851-2947.


I AM SORRY!  I must apologize to anyone who has tried to contact me.  The cell phone that I use was not working.   I don’t know for how long since, I haven’t checked it for a while.  It is not fully functional.  Again I am sorry. 



God bless,


Lois Maczuzak
