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 and the holy sacraments of the Catholic Church by integrating sacred symbols and spiritual practices of the Menominee.

Many of the disciples of Jesus deserted him when they found it hard to accept his message of giving his flesh for the life of the world. They said, "This saying is hard; who can accept it?" Obviously, they heard his words but failed to recognize the treasures that they contained. And according to this Sunday's gospel, "Many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him." Unlike such disciples, Peter heard and understood Jesus' words which, consequently, empowered him to know more Jesus. He declared, "You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God." The disciples who left the company of Jesus missed a treasured opportunity. Peter discovered it and remained with Jesus. With such discovery and fidelity, many more opportunities and blessings were bestowed on Peter.

For many of us, it is easy what is convenient and light. When things get rough and become hard to accept, the usual reaction is flight. This is true even when it comes to our faith. Not consciously perhaps, but when we hear some "hard teachings" from Jesus, we grumble and may even turn our back to him.



Let us always remain faithful to Jesus who provides us with opportunities and blessings.


Father Nonito


The Mass – A slice at a time


When the people are gathered, and as the Priest enters with the Deacon and ministers, the Entrance Chant begins. Its purpose is to open the celebration, foster the unity of those who have been gathered, introduce their thoughts to the mystery of the liturgical time or festivity, and accompany the procession of the Priest and ministers. This chant is sung alternately by the choir and the people or similarly by a cantor and the people, or entirely by the people, or by the choir alone. 


Faith Formation

We will be starting Faith Formation again in September, 2018.   Registration forms for the 2018-2019 session are available in the main entrance of church or the Parish Office. Remember to keep God with you this SUMMER – be safe! 

Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers Needed

Come help celebrate the Mass by joining us as a lector or Eucharistic minister on Saturday or Sundays.  

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.


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. 



Knowing where you stand

Opinions are easy to come by. People today are all too ready to share their theories, no matter how bizarre, with anyone willing to listen. And in this barrage of “new age” concepts, Christians can easily get confused. Trendy theories will interfere with our personal faith if we spend too much time paying heed. 


Jesus knew what that was like. When He spoke to the disciples, He first asked them, “Who do people say that I am?” and listened calmly to all the theories. Then Jesus quietly asked, “but who do you say that I am?” His simple question called to the disciples’ hearts, urging them to step away from popular theories and rumor, relying instead on His teachings. It’s a matter of knowing where you stand. When you stand firmly in God’s house, relying on His doctrines, you won’t be swayed by the latest religious fad. Ask yourself today, who do I say Jesus is?  Do my answers come from scripture and the church’s teachings or have I found them in the latest bestseller?

Seminarian Collection :  

Thank you to those who have participated in the annual Seminarian Collection: Hope for the Future, Help them Today.  There is still time to respond to the great need we have to support our local seminarians.  Have you made your gift?  So far this year our parish has raised $831.00. Last year, we raised a total of $1,479.00.  Let us see if we can increase our support of this important part of the mission of the Diocese of Green Bay.  Disciples need to support one another.  Make your gift today by mailing in your pledge card or visit

Thrift & Gift Furniture Garage:


We are looking for some strong individuals to help with pick up of furniture and miscellaneous household items.  The current volunteers doing this job are in their 70’s and 80’s.   It is getting very difficult for these volunteers to load/unload furniture.  This would not be a great time commitment.  When we get a call for a large pick up, a time would be set up. If you are interested in helping, please call the Parish Office at 715-799-3811

If you would like to become a registered member of St. Michael and receive envelopes to record your contributions to your parish and receive a statement of annual contributions for your taxes, all you need to do is contact the parish office. Call 715-799-3811 or stop in during office hours.
