We are blessed. Be a blessing!

Thank you for coming!

 

Dear Parish Family,

Blessfest was a success!

Thank you to all the work that was put into it the weeks leading up, the day of, and the days that will come after.

We were overwhelmed by the turn out and we truly could not have seen it go better.

There was food, fun, fellowship, and some very good fundraising that happened on so many levels.

Truly this was GOD’S WORK done through OUR HANDS and HEARTS.
May God be praised!!

 

With love, Fr Jim

Let us know how we did!

Take a quick survey about Blessfest so we can improve for next year! We appreciate any feedback you may have.

Community Service Opportunities

As disciples, it is our mission to serve God’s people. Whether they are from our parish, the community or beyond, serving others through simple acts of kindness and love can be beneficial to the person serving and the person receiving. It is good and right to be grateful for all that God has done for us. It is good and right to act on our gratefulness by using the gifts and talents given to us to serve others. 

St. Vincent de Paul

The St. Vincent de Paul of Green Bay offers tangible assistance to those in need on a person-to-person basis. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service. An essential principle of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served. The Society recognizes that it must assume, also, a role of advocacy for those who are defenseless or voiceless.

Invite your neighbor to dinner/Blessfest

A simple gesture such as inviting your neighbor over for a meal, or better yet asking them to join us at Blessfest, could really come as a blessing and brighten up their day. 

Salad Friends
Be the Light Suicide Prevention Walk

The organizers need volunteers for the event. In addition, it would be valuable to encourage people to go in general to reinforce the reality Catholics are called to respect life at all stages. Also, encouraging people to support by “volunteering” through prayer.

Paul's Pantry

Paul’s Pantry was started as a result of a need to care for hungry people in the community who are unable to purchase enough food for their family as a result of their meager or no incomes. Paul’s Pantry though, is more than just an emergency food pantry. Its goal is to provide a family with enough food every week, for as long as needed, so that they may use their food dollars for shelter, utilities and other necessities, and avoid becoming homeless. Paul’s Pantry handles nearly 20,000 pounds of food daily. To accomplish this, the pantry relies almost entirely upon volunteers.

Volunteers Packing Food
Nursing Home Visits

Head to a local nursing home in our area to visit with the residents, play games, help out as needed or donate items they may need. Another idea is to send hand-made cards for holidays!
