Low Gluten Communion Hosts

Low Gluten hosts are available at all Masses. If you require a low gluten host, please receive Communion from the right hand side of the center aisle of church. The Eucharistic Minister there will have a special pyx designated for low gluten hosts. The hosts are made by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, contain less than 0.01% gluten content and are approved for use in the Roman Catholic Church by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. The hosts are recommended by the journal Gluten-Free Living (vol.9 no.1) as “perfectly safe” for those with Celiac Sprue disease. If you have questions, please contact the parish office.



TV Mass for Homebound

Make Sundays complete for someone you love who cannot get to church. Please share the news about "My Sunday Mass" on TV: 9:00 a.m. on WCGV Channel 24 5:30 a.m. on WITI Channel 6 Prayer intentions from viewers, uplifting homilies, a Prayer for Spiritual Communion, and closed captioning make "My Sunday Mass" a time of spiritual comfort. For more information or to see the Mass online, visit (TV or online liturgy does not meet the Sunday Mass obligation if you can come to church.)



2017 Holy Days of Obligation

Please consult the bulletin or call us directly at (920) 892-4006 for Mass times.

Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God - January 1
Ascension of Jesus - May 25, celebrated the following Sunday, May 28
Assumption of the Blessed Mother - August 15
All Saints' Day - November 1
Immaculate Conception of Mary - December 8
Christmas - December 25

The U.S. bishops decided, with Vatican approval given July 4, 1992, that when the Solemnities of Mary, the Mother of God, the Assumption or All Saints Day fall on a Saturday or Monday, it is not an obligation to attend Mass for these feasts.

Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

This feast, closely connected to the feast of Christmas, is the most important and oldest of the major feasts of Mary. Mary's Divine Maternity became a universal feast in 1931. Liturgical reform initiated by Vatican II placed it on January 1 in 1969. Prior to this, this feast celebrated on January 1 was the circumcision of Jesus.

Although the obligation to attend when these three holy days fall on a Saturday or Monday is abolished, parishes are to continue to observe these Holy Days by scheduling one or more Masses at a convenient time so that people who wish to participate are able to do so.

Ascension of Christ

This feast is celebrated the fortieth day after Easter Sunday and commemorates the elevation of Jesus into heaven by his own power in the presence of his disciples. It is narrated in Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, and in the first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.

In March 2000, the Catholic bishops of the Wisconsin province transferred the Feast of the Ascension to the seventh Sunday of Easter, one week before Pentecost Sunday. The Vatican, at the request of the bishops of the United States, granted permission for the date change, giving ecclesiastical provinces in the United States the authority to make the transfer. Observing the Ascension on the seventh Sunday of Easter allows for heightened celebration and an increased opportunity to education people about the meaning of the feast.

Assumption of the Blessed Mother

This is the principal feast of Mary. It has a double purpose: first, the happy departure of Mary from this life and second, the assumption of her body into heaven. Little for certain is known about the day, year and manner of Mary's death. The dates assigned for it vary between three and fifteen years after Jesus' Ascension.

All Saints' Day

This feast honors all the saints, known and unknown. It was first celebrated on May 13, 610, when Pope Boniface IV proclaimed the day Feast of All Holy Martyrs in Rome. The intent was to honor all martyrs who were not included in local records. In 835, Pope Gregory IV changed the date and name to November 1 and Feast of All Saints. A fall date allowed people to celebrate with food from the fall harvest.

Immaculate Conception of Mary

The Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is the belief that God preserved Mary from any inclination to sin, the inheritance of original sin passed on to all mankind from Adam and Eve. The feast of the Conception of Mary appeared in the Roman calendar in 1476. After the dogmatic definition by Pope Pius IX in 1854, it became the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.


This feast celebrates the birth of Jesus.
