Now that the Christmas season has reached its end and that we are well into the Holy Year of Mercy, I thought I would make you aware of a few upcoming parish events:
- Tri-Parish Pilgrimage: We are planning a day tri-parish pilgrimage to La Crosse on Thursday, May 5th, 2016. We will depart via coach bus from St. Mary’s parking lot at 7am and return around 5pm. The first stop will be the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman where we will have a guided tour. By late morning, we will then head to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Both the Cathedral and Shrine churches have Holy Doors for the Jubilee Year. We will have Mass at the Shrine and there will be opportunities for confessions prior to Mass to obtain the Holy Year Indulgence. The cost for the pilgrimage is $35 per person. This includes coach bus transportation and a buffet lunch at the Shrine. If you are interesting in going, call St. Mary’s Parish Office at 715-652-2806 to reserve a spot. There are 48 spots available on the bus.
- Talk on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy by Father Burish: Learn about how to put them into practice in your own life. Date and time to be decided.
- Tri-Parish Work of Mercy Service Day: Give of your time in service to a local charitable cause/organization with your fellow parishioners. Date, time, and location to be decided.
