FROM THE PASTOR:
Next weekend we celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with a great number of young people, their sponsors, and their families from our parishes. The Mass is Sunday, October 26, at 4:30PM at St. Francis in Merrill with Bishop Christensen. I have had the pleasure of helping with the Confirmation Program. This group of young people has truly reflected, learned, prayed, and prepared for the Sacrament. Congratulations!
A few years ago we combined our Confirmation Program with St. Mary, St. Augustine, and St. John. The young people and others involved appreciated the larger group and getting to know others. It has made for great conversation. We continue the program with St. Mary and St. Augustine. Last year we joined with St. Francis of Merrill in celebrating the Confirmation Mass in Tomahawk with the agreement to try and rotate each year. (The same is being done in other parishes like Rhinelander, Eagle River, Three Lakes, and Sugar Camp.) Not only does this create a larger group, it helps us see that the church is more than just our parishes. (It also saves travel for Bishop Peter!)
In Christ's Peace,
Fr John Anderson
