Thank you for supporting this important campaign!
With the weather turning very cold this week, here are a few reminders for the season of winter:
* If school or other local events are cancelled or delayed due to inclement weather, there will be no daily Masses on those days (5:30 PM Tuesday, 8:30 AM Friday).
* If in the rare event Fr Timothy cannot make it to Mass on the weekend due to roads, weather, or an emergency, we will try to have individuals on hand to lead the community in a liturgy service with Communion which will fulfill the Sunday Mass obligation. If not, your desire to be at Mass and the lack of a Mass being offered is not a sin.
* Finally, if the weather is too bad for you to make it to Mass, it is not a mortal sin to miss Mass due to health or weather concerns, but you should strive to keep holy the Sabbath day by another means: perhaps by reading the scriptures of the day, watching Mass on TV or listening on the radio, or taking dedicated time for prayer like the Rosary or something similar. These are not intended to be a substitute for Mass, but an alternative when the weather or your health prevent your attendance. Thank you!
Dear Ms. Gall and the Parishioners of Immaculate Conception Parish:
It is with a joyful heart that I share the good news with all of you, as to the appointment of Father Timothy Brandt as Pastor of
Immaculate Conception, Florence; St. Joan of Arc, Goodman; and St. Stanislaus Kostka effective July 2, 2018.
As followers of Jesus Christ, walking in the spirit of Romans 15:7, “Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you,
for the glory of God”; I trust, you, too, will welcome Father Brandt and his awesome ministry with open arms.
[Fr. Timothy was born in Clintonville, WI, attended seminary in Mundelein, IL, was ordained to the diaconate in 2008, and to the
priesthood on June 6, 2009, by Bishop David Ricken. He served as associate pastor at St Joseph, Annunciation, St. Jude and
St. Patrick in Green Bay before being assigned as Administrator/Pastor of Holy Family in Brillion in 2011.]
May God bless you and your families with His very best, as we continue our journey together as missionary disciples in the
Diocese of Green Bay, striving to lead all people to the Kingdom of God!
Sincerely in Christ, Rev. Donald Everts, Chair, Priest Personnel Board
