Notes from Father Joel

This is the TRANSFIGURATION SUNDAY! Before the eyes of Peter, John and James, Jesus is transfigured or transformed into his glory. These apostles catch a glimpse of that glory and they don't want to come out of that experience. 

My dear co-travelers, may I again bring to your attention the Sacrament of Reconciliation. “I want to go to Communion, so I have to go to Confession.” Sounds familiar? Too many Catholics, confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sins so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, confession is much more than “going to the dry cleaner”. It’s an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are.” 

In Mr. Vinny Flynn’s book, 7 Secrets of Confession he shared a question: “If you could only use one word to explain the purpose of confession, what would that word be? - The answer is always the same, FORGIVENESS. But according to him, the right answer is HEALING. Of course we are forgiven, but this is just a part of a broader purpose that is healing. St. Faustina in her diary no. 377 said: “We come to confession to be healed”. 

 

And if you look for information about Confession in the book of Catechism, you won’t find it under “Forgiveness” but under the section of “Sacraments of Healing.” So, the question now is: Don't you want to be healed? Yes, oh Yes?

 

 

Co -Traveler, Fr. Joel

  Transfiguration: A complete change of form into a more beautiful or spiritual state


 

The Mass – A slice at a time

 The Liturgy of the Eucharist

 

The Liturgy of the Eucharist is made up of three main parts: the Preparation of the gifts, the Eucharistic Prayer, and the Communion Rite. At the Last Supper, Christ instituted the Paschal Sacrifice and banquet, by which the Sacrifice of the Cross is continuously made present in the Church whenever the Priest, representing Christ the Lord, carries out what the Lord himself did and handed over to his disciples to be done in his memory. 



  

Class was cancelled on Wednesday March 13, due to fog/icy conditions. We will meet on March 20th and 27th at 6 pm.  

 

Please include our Faith Formation children and catechists in your prayers during Lent and as we prepare for the celebration of Easter.

 

CRS ENCOUNTER LENT 

Pick up your family’s CRS Rice Bowl from church entrances. During the 40 days of Lent, as companions on the journey, we will encounter our neighbor. 


Encounter Annet

 

In Uganda, we encounter Annet and her family, children forced to flee violence, searching for stability. How are we called to welcome the stranger in our midst? How can you support those, worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities? Visit crsricebowl.org for more.



Marriage Encounter:

World’s Poor Collection March 30-31

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 www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8184.

 

Bishop’s Appeal Helps Those Who Grieve 

The loss of a loved one is an experience that many of us can understand.  For grieving families throughout our Diocese, Catholic Charities is a guiding light.  Perhaps a person or family is dealing with the loss of a son or daughter, or maybe a mother or father.  In many tragic situations, it is difficult to begin the grieving process without help.  This is where you can make a difference. By giving to the Bishop’s Appeal, you help Catholic Charities do the compassionate work of Jesus.  Through your generosity, its counselors are able to reach out and help people to cope with loss when they do not know where else to turn.  Please consider giving to the Bishop’s Appeal. To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8184.
