EXPRESSIONS OF DISCIPLESHIP – 2019/20 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
As the 2019/20 Catholic Services Appeal continues, we are grateful to the parish families that have already made their gift or pledge. For us to achieve our overall goal, it will require the active involvement and personal sacrifice of all members of our faith community. If you have not yet responded to the CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that reflects your blessings. Your gift will help tremendously and, together with your fellow parishioners, will enable the diocese to provide essential pastoral, educational and human needs throughout northern Wisconsin.
ST. FRANCIS CHOIR leads us in song at the 10:30 AM Mass each Sunday. Rehearsals are held at 10:00 AM just prior to Mass. Please consider serving your parish family in this very important facet to our parish life.

NEW COLLECTION BAGS The Diocese of Superior is requiring all parishes to now use a new type of collection bag at Mass.

This additional safety measure will add a bit more time to the collection process. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
