   Working together With GOD. . .

One of the most essential presentation during the Shepherd School was 'Collaborating in Ministry'...or simply saying; COOPERATION, among the people of God. Let US: pray, learn, coordinate, celebrate and make disciples TOGETHER!
Basically looking at the relationship and work of the Triune God, is where we can root out our UNITY among ourselves in the Church.
While each of us have been laddened with different gifts and exemplar talents, we are expected to share those; for a better collaboration between each member, and to achieve a healthy and mature community of disciples.

Given the responsibilities of the Pastors/Priests or we called them in the previous bulletin as servant-leaders, he would be in regular 'connection' with whom?...of course with the parishioners in general, but extraordinarily with his pastoral council. According to the Parish Pastoral Council Policies - Diocese of Green Bay 2015, the Pastoral Council is..., "A community of disciples, called together to work in close consultation with the pastor, administrator, pastoral leader and staff, to prayerfully discern and carry out, the WILL OF GOD, for this parish now and into the future." The Pastoral Council's main purpose is to: listen and respond to the Holy Spirit, organize lay participation and cooperation, facilitate shared practical wisdom, facilitate pastoral planning and listen to the needs of some concerns of the parish.

Along with the Pastoral Council, pastors should also be in close contact with the Parish Finance Council. The Parish Finance Council is in charge with the regulation and transparency of the financial matters of the parish, it must also go along with the Pastoral Council. Looking at this structure, it entails a profound 'going-together' of every people comprising the Church of the Lord. Let us always keep in mind that being a Church or 'Ekklesia' means a gathering or assembly of the people of God, built through our Lord Jesus Christ. We compose the Church, so we live up to be 'church', we prosper as a church, we grow in spirit as church, we relate to God as church...

   Faith Formation classes started this past Wednesday.  We had twenty-four children enroll.   Father Francis welcomed the children and their parents/guardians to this years’ sessions.  The parents/guardians stayed and learned about this years’ program and about the nights that will be set aside for them to remain and learn and enhance their own faith. The topics for these sessions include learning more about the Bible, Understanding the Mass, Sacraments, and Easter and Holy Week.  These sessions will also be open to all parishioners to learn more about our faith.  

   It is 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 to 7:15 pm in Barrett Hall.  If you have any questions or concerns about our program call me at 715-851-2947.  

   I want to take this opportunity to thank our catechists for volunteering to guide our children in our faith.  Ruthie and Riley Tucker have taken on the challenge of the first and second graders.  Victoria and Mary Minch are guiding the third and fourth graders. Kathy Tucker is working with the older children.  I am very grateful to these wonderful volunteers for helping to make our program a success!  We can always use more volunteers to our program. If you want to know more about volunteering call me and let us chat about what it is to be a part of this program!  



God bless,


Lois Maczuzak

Time does not heal all wounds… It’s the work you do during that time that helps the healing process. We offer a Support Group for those wanting to heal through sharing. Support facilitators are present to guide the group in discussion but they do not take the place of professional counseling. This is an opportunity to get connected with people going through similar experiences. Learn to share and let go of the emotional issues associated with divorce and separation. It’s time for a happy life and to learn to love and accept yourself. For more information call: ● Green Bay Catholic Charities (920) 272-8234 ● Oshkosh Area -Tanya Hielke St Raphael Parish (920) 233-8044 x246 To Learn about Wings and other resources for persons who are Single Again/Divorced, see the diocesan website for Stewardship and Pastoral Services at: >>
