  Deacon Mark Writing

Many times life can seem like a rat race and the rats are usually winning!  We can all become a victim of the “tyranny of the urgent,” where things that seem like they need our immediate attention get priority over things that are truly important.  For example, I might tell my family that I have some phone calls I urgently need to make and, therefore, I neglect sitting down to dinner on time.  In this scenario, I place a few “needed” phone calls over the importance of talking and connecting with family members at the dinner table.  By the time I do come to dinner, I have missed most of the important shared conversations. This is a tyranny of the urgent which needs an antidote if we are to be really happy.

Jesus understood this harried human condition and that is why he invited his disciples to “come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while" (Mk 6:31).  Jesus knew that from time to time our souls needed rest and renewal.  This time of rest and renewal is also called making a retreat. This call for rest and renewal is really for all of us.  As a deacon, I am required to make a retreat each year but I learned the importance of making a retreat many years before.  I also understand how easy it is to talk oneself out of going on a retreat. How would everything and everyone survive without me if I go???? Again, the tyranny of the urgent can be very strong.

This month there are two retreat experiences available for people of our parishes.  The first one for women is ending this weekend and has been well attended. The second retreat experience is for men and will take place Oct. 26-28th at Camp Tekakwitha on nearby Loon Lake.  This week-end away is called an Emmaus Retreat, and is a wonderful opportunity for relaxation, prayer, renewal, and fellowship.  Retreats can be experiences where the Lord can touch us deeply with his healing love and friendship.  I invite all men to take a leap of faith and experience God on this retreat. For more information, please contact me at 715-201-2961 or my home phone @ 715-524-5094.  

In His mercy,

Deacon Mark 

The Mass – A slice at a time


The Kyrie, eleison

After the Penitential Act, the Kyrie, eleison, (Lord have mercy), is always begun, unless it has already been part of the Penitential Act. Since it is a chant by which the faithful acclaim the lord and implore his mercy, it is usually executed by everyone, that is to say, with the people and the choir or cantor taking part in it. Each acclamation is usually pronounced twice, though it is not to be excluded that it be repeated several times, by reason of the character of the various languages, as well as all of the artistry of the music or of other circumstances. When the kyrie is sung as a part of the penitential act, a “trope” precedes each acclamation.


Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Come help celebrate the Mass by joining us as a lector or Eucharistic minister on Saturday or Sundays. Eucharistic ministers must be confirmed Catholics. 

Preparation is minimal and the rewards of this service are enriching and fulfilling. Please contact the Parish Office at St. Michaels if interested. (715) 799-3811.. 



Faith Formation

On Wednesday October 3rd classes and the Living Rosary were cancelled due to inclement weather. We will meet Wednesday, Oct. 10th from 6-7:30 pm.  There is still time to register for classes. 




CALLING ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WISH TO BE CONFIRMED.  Confirmation classes are being offered on Wednesday evening 6:00 to 7:30.  For more information stop in on Wednesday, October 3rd at Barrett Hall.




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. 


 Respect For Life Prayer

Gentle St. Francis you were so devoted to the humanity of Christ. Your heart burst with appreciation toward God
for taking on human life. You saw beauty and goodness in all living things - in birds that sing, the fish that fill our waters, and all that lives in nature.

Help us to imitate your reverence for life wherever it may be. Especially, humble Francis of Assisi, help us to help others to see the worth of each living, unborn baby sheltered in its mother's womb.

May all mankind have the grace to understand that these tiny, budding lives have the right to live, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thank you.
