 A Note from Fr. Nonito 

We celebrate the Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe as we end the church's liturgical year this Sunday. Is Jesus really a king? If so, what is his kingdom all about? And what is its significance for us? It is difficult to imagine that the son of a lowly carpenter leading a ragtag band of ordinary men, bruised and blooded, crowned with thorns, hoisted on the cross could be a king. Perhaps the problem lies mainly in our stereotyped thinking. For us, the word "king" connotes a stately person who rules over the people of his kingdom. Jesus did not deny when he was asked by Pilate, "Are you the king of the Jews?"  But then he said, "My kingdom does not belong to this world."  Jesus reply simply means that he was not the kind of king Pilate imagined, not a military or political ruler whose kingdom is limited to one place. It rather implies not just a place but God's active rule or reign in people's hearts from which our motives, values, and attitude originate. This is why Jesus declared, "The kingdom of God is within you."


 

Jesus is truly the king of the universe. He is our king too, asking us not only to recognize his authority but also to reign with him. May we think as Jesus thought, act as he did by forgiving others their faults, showing mercy whenever the opportunity occurs, and accepting everyone. And in doing these, may we also merit one day to live with him forever, our King, our Lord, and our Savior.

 

The Mass – A slice at a time

The Biblical Readings

 

The function of proclaiming the readings is by tradition not presidential but ministerial. Therefore the readings are to be read by a reader, but the Gospel by the Deacon or, in his absence, by another Priest. If, however, a Deacon or another Priest is not present, the Priest Celebrant himself should read the Gospel, and moreover, if no other suitable reader is present, the Priest Celebrant should also proclaim the other readings as well. After each reading, whoever reads it pronounces the acclamation, and by means of the reply the assembled people give honor to the Word of God that they have received in faith and with gratitude


 

There was no Faith Formation on November 21st due to Thanksgiving Holiday.  Classes resume November 28th.   We will be celebrating Reconciliation with the children on December 5th. We will not have Mass that day or Potluck. After Reconciliation, the children will be making Advent Prayer chains to count down to Christmas. 

 

 

 

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.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sat. December 8, 2018

Yes, Immaculate Conception is still a Holy Day of Obligation this year, even if it falls on a Saturday. Catholics are therefore obligated to participate in two Masses that weekend:

1)      Mass for the Immaculate Conception (sometime between 4pm on Friday, Dec. 7 and 4pm on Saturday Dec. 8) and

2)      Mass for the 2nd Sunday of Advent thereafter as usual.


Holy Day Mass schedule:

Friday, Dec. 7th 6:30 pm St. Michael & St. Mary, Leopolis

Saturday Dec 8th 8 am St. Francis and 8:30 am St. Anthony.  


Advent Reconciliation Service

This Advent season, St. Michael Parish will hear confessions from 5:30 - 7:30 pm on Wednesday December 5th. This special date and time will be in addition to our regularly-scheduled confessions. On December 12th, St. Mary Leopolis will be having a Reconciliation Service from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. If you have been reluctant to come to the sacrament, have been away for some time, or just find it difficult to attend a regularly scheduled confession time, this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with Christ and his Church. We pray that all will take advantage of God's abundant healing grace, forgiveness and love.


Holiday Bazaar

Thank you to Laurie Reiter who organized our Holiday Bazaar this year. It was a huge success. Thank you to all the volunteers who baked/decorated cookies, made soup, baked goods or candy, volunteered  countless hours setting up/taking down, working the bazaar and all the work that goes on behind the scenes. We could not have done this without all our wonderful volunteers.   


St. Francis Annual Christmas Bazaar

St. Francis Christmas Bazaar is on Saturday, December 1st, 2018, 9am-2pm. There will be baked goods and candy. Also crafts. There will also be a raffle.
