My Dear Parishioners,
Monday, August 15, is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I encourage you to attend Mass at “The Chapel” honoring our Mother Mary.
Bishop Ricken is also providing an opportunity for people of our Diocese to attend a Marian Eucharistic Conference. His letter is as follows:
Dear Friends in Christ,
Recently, there has been an increasing desire among the faithful for a Eucharistic Conference to be established in the Diocese of Green Bay. I am pleased to share with you that the diocese will host its first Marin Eucharistic Conference—Mary, Mother of the Eucharist—on October 7-8, 2011. The conference will be held at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, St. Norbert College, and the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, coinciding with the 152nd anniversary of the Blessed Mother’s apparition to Sister Adele Joseph Brise.
With the help of Our Lady, Mother of the Eucharist, those who attend the conference will realize with greater visibility the hidden power of the Eucharist and the important role in which Our Lady serves to unite us with Jesus in the Eucharist.
We, as Catholics, recognize the Eucharist as the source and summit of our Catholic faith. Please join me for an event that is sure to enrich and strengthen your faith journey with and toward our Eucharistic Lord.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend David L. Ricken, DD, JCL
Bishop of Green Bay
Mark your calendars—this promises to be a very special event for our Diocese.
Oremus pro invicem,
