    Prayer for the Nation

    God of our forebears, in tumultuous times our ancestors made their way to a new land, seeking prosperity and peace. The wealth of a new nation lay before them, as well as the challenge to use wisely the gifts of the good earth and the industriousness of a people forged in the crucible of revolution and the high-minded ideals of life and liberty. Strengthen within us the pursuit of justice, the desire for equality, the love of true freedom.  May all the citizens of ourcountry work unceasingly to promote the common good so that all may share in the pursuit of happiness sought by the founders of our land. Amen.

    Tuesday – Friday 

    Limited to 135 People

    Returning to 
    Celebration of Mass

    Following the guideline
    from our Diocese,
    I am pleased to announce
    that our Parish will return
    to public celebration of
    Holy Mass
    with up to 25% occupancy
    of our church buildings, beginning the weekend
    June 13-14, 2020,

    the Solemnity of the Body
    and Blood of Christ.
    The Mass Schedule will be as usual.
    The 25 % of seating capacity for each Mass in Lakewood is 135;
    in Silver Cliff is 75,
    and in Crooked Lake is 100.

    You are welcome to go back to the celebration of Mass in this limited way on the
    ‘first come first served’ basis.


    GENERAL GUIDELINE from Diocese:

    The dispensation from the Sunday Obligation of the Mass remains during Phase #2. The faithful should use their best judgment as to whether or not to attend Mass. During this Phase a person may choose to refrain from attending Mass for any reason; however, those who are not sick or frail due to illness or age are encouraged to return to Mass.
    Those who are showing symptoms of illness such as cough or fever, even if not COVID related, in the spirit of Christian charity, should remain at home. If possible, a visit from a priest, deacon, or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion may be arranged to bring the Eucharist to these individuals.

     Masks are encouraged for all those attending. All ushers assisting should wear a mask and abide by social distancing guideline.

     Hand sanitizer should be used as needed. ‘Holy Communion may not be distributed with gloves, nor may it be received in the hand if a member of the faithful is wearing gloves.
    Though it should be strongly encouraged that he faithful receives Holy Communion in the hand... If the faithful desire to receive on the tongue, they should receive from the priest (or his delegate).
     A single file should be formed for Holy Communion, with 6’ distance between each person.

  • Where to find us

  • Today's Readings

  • Reflect 

    First Reading—
    We hear how the Prophet Elisha and his servant Gehazi repaid the Shunammite woman for her generous hospitality. When have you shown excessive generosity to another

    Second Reading— 
    Paul taught the Roman Christians that through Baptism, believers fully participate in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. How should this reality impact one’s day-to-day living?

    Gospel Reading—
    esus continues to teach his followers the challenges of discipleship. What do you find most challenging in following Christ?

    Prayer Shawls

    If you would like to receive a prayer shawl, or know of someone who would, please call the parish office.
    A prayer shawl has been blessed by Father and helps to remind us 
    of God’s love and care and the prayers of our faith community to know that
    we are not alone.

  • Gradual Process of Returning to Mass

    This past weekend (June 21-22) was the second weekend that our Parish participated in our Diocese’s ‘Gradual Process of Returning to Mass.’ Again, because it was a ‘gradual process’, the church attendance was limited to 25% occupancy.  25% basically means for Lakewood up to 135 people for each Mass, Crooked Lake 100, Silver Cliff 75 and Wabeno 75. The attendance last weekend was similar to the weekend before --with Lakewood 86 at 4 PM & 70 at 9 AM, Crooked Lake 39, Silver Cliff 29, and Wabeno 38. 

    Please continue to pray for our world, our Country, and our parish area that, with the Grace of God, we will soon be relieved from the pandemic, and will be back to the pre-corona routine. In the meantime, may I ask you to continue to use your best consideration & judgment. If all things considered with regard to your ages and health conditions, you may decide to go to church at this time. 

    You may want to choose the Mass with less attendants now and go to that one. At the same time, you may want to consider going to weekday Masses  (when there are smaller crowds) –8:30 AM in Lakewood
    TUE-FRI or Wabeno 4 PM every TUE.

    For the good of everyone, precautions continue to be observed when you go to church. Basically, we continue to ask you the following:

    -Have your temperature taken (before entering the church).
    -Those with compromised immunity & anyone with a fever, high temperature, cough or flu-like symptoms should go home.
    - Wearing a face-mask is strongly encouraged. Bring your own mask, if possible. Take it off for Communion, put it back on & bring it home. 
    - Be seated on every other pew & keep 6’ social distancing.  
    w Form a single line for Communion –with 6’ distance between each person.
    -Do not wear gloves when receiving Communion. Use sanitizer as needed.
