Grief Group Meeting – May 24

Grieving the death of someone we love is a journey that changes over time yet is always present in our lives.  Along with Fr. Dan, we gather to explore the spiritual, physical and emotional aspects experienced through our grief.  Join us, TUESDAY, MAY 24TH FROM 6-7:15 pm in the Fireside Lounge at the ERC. The group offers friendship and support with others walking in grief.  Please RSVP to the parish office at parishoffice@newmanec.com or 715-834-3399.

Parish Councils

I’m grateful for the parish members who serve on our pastoral and finance councils and provide consultation on administration of the parish.  JoAnn Adams, Lou Hoeschen, Ryan Luedtke, Justin Patchin, Mike Vruwink, Brenda Weisenbeck, and college students Anna Dresang and Alex Drost served this past year on the pastoral council.  Jim Hittman, Holly Pokrandt, and Randy Risler served on the finance council.

 

Justin Patchin and Lou Hoeschen have concluded their service on the pastoral council.  I appreciated their time and insight on the council among the other ways they also serve the parish.  The pastoral council is a consultative body that meets four times a year to discuss various items pertaining to the life of the parish from areas such as liturgy, community, service, campus ministry, religious formation.  Each member serves a two-year term that can be renewed twice.  If you are interested in joining the parish pastoral council, please contact me before June 1.  Fr. Dan
