Live out our Easter joy! Fully immerse yourself in the Mass. (The word Eucharist means Thanksgiving.) Take a free Covid-19 test kit, if you need one, or take one for someone you know. Get involved with the ministries of the parish. (We have a needs list in the bulletin.) We will gladly put you or someone you care about on our prayer line. If you need help with mental health, we can put you in touch with local organizations for healthy living/positive mental health (INSYGHT Flyer(1))
Although our comment period is over, we ask your continued prayers for the success of the Synod, which won’t end until next year.
PRAYERS: Your prayers are needed! Please go to the Prayers tab for prayers specific to programs and initiatives, current events and those our diocese wants us to pass onto our children.
|On 6/19, can you represent Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Community at the Diocesan Opening of the 3 year Eucharistic Revival? “The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’ ‘The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.’” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no.1324).

Celebrate Reconciliation & Penance, every Saturday, 5-5:25 PM at the back of the Nave of St. Michael’s, or by appointment. Allow the grace of the sacrament to heal you.
The sexual abuse cases brought against the Diocese are still in deliberation. The Diocese’s actions are to protect individual parishes. Please continue to pray for this situation and the healing of those who suffered.
We met our Catholic Ministries Appeal assessment! THANK YOU to all those who prayed and donated! Our reward is that our assessment is $2,000 lower for 2023! (That is no reason to stop giving or lower your offering. Locally, we have many unmet financial needs.) Can we be good stewards of what we have? This short video from our US Catholic Bishops is about the spirituality of stewardship. See also the Stewardship page on this website.
I pray for you and hope to see you in person at Mass!
God bless you!
Fr. Leo, Pastor
