  A Note from Fr. Joel

Some people may regard the TRINITY as a theological hair-splitting medieval dogma of no relevance to the ordinary Christian life of today. The HOLY TRINITY is better appreciated in the context of the relationship among the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit and their connection with us.

For all of us who continue to try our very best living our Christian faith through tihck and thin of our daily ordinary lives, let us not forget that the very source of our existential breathing is no other than the Holy Trinity. 

The Father, known to be the Creator - God, is the head, sets the direction for his people and guides them through the journey. The Son, known to be the Redeemer, is the key in revealing God to humankind. Through his person, loyal and obedient to the Father, gives a human face to God by proclaiming the Gospel, curing the sick, forgiving sinners healing wounded, restoring broken relationships, and giving his life on the Cross. The Holy Spirit, known to be the Sanctifier, is thus the fulfillment of Jesus’ promise. He is the Divine Love formed between the Father and the Son. Through the Holy Spirit we join in the circle of LIFE and LOVE, endowing us with gifts or strengths necessary for the journey.

Let us be always and constantly be thankful to the Holy Trinity by continuously listening to the Word that is being proclaimed for us at every gathering of all disciples on the way called to be missionaries of hope, at Mass and so continue to live a life of communion with them, Holy Trinity and among us sons and daughters in one faith.

Wishing you all a blessed Holy Trinity Sunday.


Co-Traveler, Fr. Joel, mf


The Mass – A slice at a time

The Eucharistic Prayer 

b) The Acclamation, by which the whole congregation, joining with the heavenly powers, sings the Sanctus (Holy, holy, holy). This acclamation, which constitutes part of the Eucharistic Prayer itself, is pronounced by all the people with the Priest. 


The Holy Trinity 

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. 'triad', from Latin: trinus "threefold") holds that God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as "one God in three Divine Persons".



Let us remember in prayer Joan Ann Tucker who has been called by God to eternal life. We also remember her family and friends, and pray that God will give them consolation and peace

Kateri Prayer Circle

Never underestimate the power of prayer. Just one small prayer can change your life. If you or your family members need prayers for any reason, please call one of our Kateri Prayer Circle members, who will in turn call members of their group.  Soon, many prayers will be offered for your specific prayer request.  Please call: 

Fay Waupochick 715-799-3437

Leatha Grinhaug 715-994-1098

You can also call the parish office with your Prayer request 715-799-3811.
