Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty
The USCCB has announced a campaign of prayer and fasting for the “rebuilding of a culture favorable to life and marriage and for increased protections of religious liberty.” The campaign, will begin the Sunday after Christmas.
The campaign has five components:
1. Holy Hours (see the schedule here)
3. Prayers of the Faithful at Mass
4. Fasting and abstinence from meat on all Fridays
5. Fortnight for Freedom in July
Holy Hour for the Most Holy Trinity
Our next Holy Hour will be Trinity Sunday, May 26. Please stay after 10:30 Mass to praise and adore the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Great Lakes Pilgrimage
We are planning a pilgrimage around Lake Michigan this summer, July 10-14. St. John Vianney and St. Thomas are co-sponsoring this fabulous opportunity to see the wonderful shrines and historic churches right in our own backyard, including the newly approved Marian apparition site, Our Lady of Good Help, near Green Bay, Wisconsin. The trip is being coordinated through Skinner Travel. See the event flyer here.
Middle School Workcamp
The Middle School Workcamp will be here at St. John Vianney. We will be working with the Vacation Bible School program and doing other service projects in our local community. If you are interested the registration forms can be printed here.
Altar Server Training
Altar server training will be held on Saturday: May 18, 2013 at 10:00 A.M.
This ministry is open to all students who will be in the 4th grade or above
at the start of the school year in September 2013. Permission slips will
be in the gathering area starting the weekend of April 27th & 28th 2013.
Please fill them out and return to the sacristan (Mrs. Haugen) as soon
It is a tradition of the church to mark the passing of time in the day with prayer. The Liturgy of the Hours has set times to pray the psalms. During most of the year at noon the church remembers the Incarnation with the praying of the Angelus. During Easter this is replaced with the Regina Caeli.
