A NOTE FROM FR. JIM

Special thanks to all who remembered me on my recent birthday. I appreciate your prayers, cards, gifts and all of the treats at the Ice Cream Social. It was great fun!

My motto of a new year of life is:

“Life is grand – a perpetual spree

When you come to sixty-three!”

Blessings!

Fr. Jim

CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL

Catholic Services Appeal will take place in our parish the weekend of September 18-19. We must remember that we are one with other churches om northern Wisconsin and our diocese itself. The Appeal is an opportunity for us, as a faith family, to join together to do the work of the Lord. All families are encouraged to support the CSA by giving to the Appeal. Our financial support is needed to continue God’s work in our area. Every dollar contributed to the appeal assists our parish in offsetting our yearly diocesan assessment responsibility to our Diocesan Church. Every family will receive information on the CSA in the mail. This year, our goal is $53,356.00. God will indeed bless & reward your generosity.
