SUNDAY, MARCH 10th after the 10:00 Mass
New Pastor Process
You probably know that Fr. Larry will be moving to “Senior Priest Status” (i.e. retirement) effective June 30, 2019. This means that the Diocese of Green Bay, under Bishop David Ricken, will be assigning a new pastor for St. Gabriel the Archangel in the coming months.
As part of this process, a representative from the Priest Personnel Board, Fr. Don Everts, will be visiting St. Gabriel on Sunday, March 10th at 12:15 pm. He will be here to learn more about our perception of the pastoral needs of our parish. To be clear, this is NOT a meeting to vote on or select a new pastor! Rather, it is one step in an established diocesan procedure to help discern the character and requirements of our particular community. Your thoughtful input will be a helpful step in making a good transition to new pastoral leadership. Fr. Don will also be able to address questions you may have. In the meantime, if you have questions or concerns, please direct them to Fr. Larry, Deacon Tom, or a parish staff or parish council member.
Lenten Reflection and Rice Bowl
March 10th is also the First Sunday of Lent, the perfect time to embrace our penitential practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Immediately after the 10:00 Mass, people of ALL AGES can plan on a FREE simple meatless meal in Stingle Hall. After the meal, we will have a brief prayer and presentation on how we can make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters who struggle in desperate poverty. This will kick off our annual Operation Rice Bowl, organized by Catholic Relief Services. It will open our eyes, minds, and hearts to be transformed in this holy season. The Lenten meal and reflection will adjourn in time for everyone to attend the gathering with Fr. Don Everts of the Priest Personnel Board. (see above)
Each week the group will watch helpful, comforting videos that cover topics essential to your recovery from the hurt of grief and loss. Each session features videos and encouraging group discussion.
Participants can start at anytime / Each week’s topic stands alone
Thursdays through May 9 , 6:00–8:00 pm

Our Mass intention calendar for 2019 has many daily Masses available. Having a Mass said in memory of a loved one is a beautiful remembrance. Mass offerings may also be given for the health of a sick person, a newly married couple, a young person preparing for Confirmation or First Holy Communion, a person preparing to enter the Church through RCIA, a college student, a wedding anniversary or any other prayer intention. We limit weekend/holy day Masses to two per year per person, but weekday Masses are open to request. There is a customary offering of $10 for a Mass intention. Please contact the parish office if you would like to schedule a Mass in memory of your loved one. In anticipation of our next pastor, we will not begin taking Mass Intentions for 2020 until July 15th.
