God bless you all Christian.
Hello sir my wish I joining holy week please sand me invitation letter?
You may have noticed this friendly face at POP but not known his name. Now is your chance to get to know a bit more about Al in this article from The Compass: ‘𝗕𝗶𝗴 𝗔𝗹’ 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗵𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗵

Loving God, during this holy season of Christmas, we ask for your blessing on our friends and family.

Let Jesus birth and life result in joyful gatherings with family and friends.

Merry Christmas from Our Lady of Lourdes School family!

Today begins Vocations Awareness Week. We pray for vocations.

"Almighty God,
You have given me the gift of life, and the gift of your Holy Spirit. For these incredible gifts, I thank you. Help me to use them well.

Deepen within me a desire to do your will.
Help me to hear and answer your call to serve you.
Guide me to the vocation you have chosen for me,
as a loving spouse and parent in the Sacrament of Marriage, as a single person living a life of generous service, or through a special call to serve you in Religious Life or the Priesthood.

May your Holy Spirit keep me always close to your Son Jesus, and help me to say yes to Him with the gift of my life.
Amen."

Thank you to the Silva family for saying yes in praying as a family for vocations. They were recently featured in The Compass Green Bay Diocese newspaper.

On October 13, students across the Diocese of Green Bay came together to pray the Rosary in honor of Our Lady of Fatima to celebrate the Miracle of the Dancing Sun. We are blessed and honored that the celebration at GRACE school St. John the Baptist School was featured in The Compass and photographed beautifully by Sam Lucero.

We all know that people love Bishop David Ricken, but now we know that cows love him too! Bishop Ricken had fun at the Oconto County Breakfast on the Farm in Lena yesterday.

When Bob Tuszynski heard about a request in May 2020 for buglers and trumpeters to perform “Taps” at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, he jumped at the opportunity.

“At that time, I had not touched my trumpet in four to six months and not practiced in earnest in almost four years,” he told The Compass. “I dressed up and went to Royal Scot (golf club) and failed miserably.”

But Monday, he will have performed "Taps" 1,000 times this year.
As many of you may have read in this week's special insert of The Compass, the Apparition Oratory of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is a repository of many first-class relics, among them, those of Saint Faustina Kowalska, Saint Mother Teresa and the Apostles. With the pilgrimage season now upon us, we have begun hosting open veneration of relics on special Feast Days. Tomorrow, April 25, the Feast of Mark, the Evangelist, there will be open veneration in the Apparition Oratory between 9 AM and 5 PM (central time) of the first-class relic of St. Mark. Please join us or visit the lower level of the Apparition Chapel; our Apparition Oratory at Champion, for prayer and reflection between 7 AM and 7 PM daily, 365 days a year.
