Mission Statement: St. Michael’s Christian Community, located on the Menominee Indian Reservation, is a diverse Christian community reaching out to all residents, learning, loving, sharing and communicating with one another through the teachings and practices celebrated in the Mass & the holy sacraments of the Catholic Church by integrating sacred symbols and spiritual practices of the Menominee. 


 A Note from Your Deacon

We hear in today’s gospel, Jesus inviting Peter, Andrew, James, and John to follow him and if they have the courage to follow, Jesus will lead them on a wonderful adventure.  This adventure might not be easy but it will be fulfilling and lead to true peace and joy.  This invitation from Jesus is also offered to us.  Invitation has been the theme of the gospel readings these past two Sundays and it seems appropriate to offer another invitation to you as well. My invitation to you is to participate in Alpha Online. In the bulletin these past few weeks, you would have seen an ad about Alpha Online and a promise of details to follow.  The details are now here! We have had Alpha programs offered in the past but this will be the first time that Alpha is being offered virtually.

What is Alpha?  It is a series of sessions, exploring with others, the basics of the Christian faith.  Alpha is 11 weekly sessions plus an optional retreat time in the middle.  Each session includes time to get to know new people, time to watch a video, and time for discussion of that video.  It will be offered in the Zoom format and you can participate in the comfort and safety of your own home. Alpha Online will start on Thursday, February 11th from 6:30 PM to 7:45 PM.  We will be meeting virtually on Zoom for eleven weeks. This might also be an opportunity to invite other family members, who no longer attend church, to see if this might interest them.  They can come and see if Alpha is relevant for them and if not, there is no obligation to stay.  There is no cost to attend for anyone.

To register or have additional questions, please contact Deacon Mark at or 715-201-2961. Please give this Alpha Online invitation prayerful consideration. I would suggest that it would be a great thing to do for Lent this year! 

Upon Further Reflection

A woman invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?"

"I wouldn't know what to say," the little girl replied.

"Just say what you hear Mommy say," the mother said.

The little girl bowed her head and said: "Dear Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"


In His Mercy,

Deacon Mark

St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.  May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen
