IMPORTANT INFORMATION: On Tuesday, November 24th, after experiencing cold-like symptoms, Fr. Timothy tested POSITIVE for the corona virus. Because of contact tracing, the parish offices will be closed for at least two weeks (through December 8th), and will not be open to visitors.
If you had contact with Fr. Timothy over the weekend of November 21st & 22nd or since then by means of physical contact (shaking hands or a hug as he is departing for Texas) or spent more than 15 minutes within 6 feet of him, you, too, should quarantine and watch for symptoms for 14 days from that point and may want to have a COVID test done.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Fr. Timothy at (920) 615-6600, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
COVID-19 UPDATE . . . On Monday, October 5, 2020, Bishop David Ricken reinstated the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in the diocese until further notice. We will continue to celebrate the Mass every weekend for those who are able to attend and are willing to strictly follow the proper health protocols. During this time of increased infection, our parish will be even more vigilant about following the diocesan guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID 19 and allow as many people as is safe to come to Mass without fear of infection. The wearing of masks is mandatory at Masses.
LOOKING AHEAD . . .

TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED THROUGH MID-MARCH 2021:
NEW! EUCHARISTIC ADORATION will take place on Tuesdays from 4:30 pm—5:20 pm, with Benediction occurring before the 5:30 pm, Mass. Fr. Timothy will also be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation during this time. This will take place every Tuesday where there is a 5:30 pm, Mass to be celebrated. Lastly, please note that this time will replace the previous Thursday evening Adoration that was being held prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. You’re invited to stop and pray, spend time with our Lord who loves you, and just be in His Presence. This is an excellent time to pray for family and friends, for healing, or perhaps even vocations to the priesthood and religious life!
Safe Environment: Each person has an inherent dignity as a beloved child of God. The Diocese of Green Bay is committed to providing a safe environment in our parishes, in our schools, in our faith formation programs, and in all of our ministries, especially those that serve children, youth and individuals at risk. If you want to learn more about the programs and resources available through the Diocese of Green Bay to live out this commitment, please visit: http://www.gbdioc.org/ministry-formation-portal/safe-environment.html.
2019-20 PARISH ANNUAL MEETING/FINANCIAL REPORT . . . If any one is interested in receiving a copy of St. Mary's 2019-20 parish annual financial report which was presented at Mass recently, please contact Joanne in the parish office, and she will gladly provide you with a copy of the same.
ON-LINE GIVING OPTIONS DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC: While the parish has received many generous donations throughout the past weeks during the shutdown, and we have applied with many other small businesses for the Payroll Protection Program, I did want to make you aware that the diocese has made available to all parishes an on-line giving option during these days of parish shutdowns, so people may continue to support the work of their parishes. You can make a one-time online gift, or setup a recurring (weekly, monthly) gift that will be made and then forwarded on to the parish of your choosing. To access the online giving page through the Diocesan Catholic Foundation, simply visit https://www.givecentral.org/appeals-form-registration/acp5e7d16110ebfd/user/guest.
Thank you for your consideration of our parish needs during this difficult time for us all! Gifts may also be dropped off at the church using your envelopes at St Mary’s any weekday morning, or left in the mailbox outside the main entrance. God bless! Fr. Timothy
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

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
