 Note from Fr. Nonito

Catholics referred to the fourth Sunday of Easter as the "Good Shepherd Sunday." The gospel reading, although very short, clearly points out that Jesus Christ is our Good Shepherd and that all of us should listen and heed to his call: "My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand." 

In the first reading taken from the book of the Acts of the Apostles, Paul and Barnabas take upon themselves the responsibility of preaching the word of Jesus Christ to the Jews. These two disciples emphasize the need for listening first to the word of the Lord before preaching it to the people: "It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first."  Indeed, we must first listen to the call and respond to it before we let other people listen and respond to God's invitation. If we ourselves are attentive to the voice of the Good Shepherd, we can be assured that people will follow us because of our witnessing of God's call.

In the second reading from the Book of Revelation, John narrates his vision of countless number of people who are saved. And it is the Lamb who is the center of the throne, who will shepherd them. Once more, this reading tells us that it is Jesus Christ who will lead us to our salvation. He is the way that leads us to the Father, if we want to be saved, we must listen to Jesus Christ. However, it is very difficult to listen to him in our society today. There are many people who claim to have all the solutions to the problems that confront us. We ourselves have the tendency to talk too much and forget to listen to others.

We are reminded once again that if we want to share in the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we must be able to always listen to the voice of God. How can we listen to God's voice? First, let us make it a point to read the Sacred Scriptures. We can also pray to him in silence so we can hear his voice within us. But it is very important that we persevere because there are many times when our prayers seem unanswered. However, it does not mean that God does not listen to our prayers.

The path to the kingdom of God is a narrow one but we are assured by Jesus Christ, who once walked through the path of righteousness and peace, that glory and triumph await us. 

In Jesus Christ,

Fr. Nonito


The Mass – A slice at a time

On The Liturgy of the Eucharist

So, even money or other gifts for the poor or for the Church, brought by the faithful or collected in the

Church, are acceptable; given their purpose, they are to be put in a suitable place away from the

Eucharistic table. Now the procession bringing the gifts is accompanied by the Offertory Chant, which continues at least until the gifts have been placed on the altar. The norms on the manner of singing are the same as for the Entrance Chant. Singing may always accompany the rite at the Offertory, even when there is no procession with the gifts.

Meet Our Confirmation Candidate Derek Minch

I am a seventh grader at Shawano Community Middle School. My parents are Brian and Victoria (Missy) Minch. My grandparents were Edwin Wilber & Barbara Waupochick Wilber.  My confirmation sponsor is my family’s very close friend, who we love so very much, Annalee Tucker.  The confirmation name I am requesting is John Paul. I attend Mass and Faith Formation and I am an altar server and help when it is needed in the church. My Catholic faith goes back many generations.  I am ready to take that next step in my Catholic faith.  I am asking for your prayers. Will you please think of me on June 9th when I receive

my confirmation at the Cathedral in Green Bay. 



Kateri Prayer Circle
