    4 FADE
  • All Catholic Masses Suspended 

    From March 20th until
    further Notice.

    We have beautiful Stations of the Cross outside in the parish cemetery. This would be a wonderful time to take a walk and spend some time in prayer with Jesus on Good Friday or Holy Week.



    Today the holiest week of the church year begins. It celebrates in story and ritual Jesus’ passing over from death to life. Identification with Christ in both

    his death and resurrection is what identifies a whole and fully realized person as a Christian person. This day we recall that the journey Jesus under took is our journey as well, each individual Christian life is closely knit to the life of Christ.

    Lakewood church doors will be unlocked during parish office hours and weekends so parishioners can pick up a bulletin or take time for prayer.  

    Please continue to mail your weekly contributions.
    The church will continue her ministries during this period of financial strain.
    Please consider maintaining your level of contributions at this time.

    God Bless You For Your Sharing
    & Thank You!

    • Friends, today’s Gospel is from John’s account of the Last Supper, where Jesus acknowledges Judas as his betrayer and tells him to get on with it. God’s desires have been, from the beginning, opposed.

  • Bishop of Green Bay Decree

    Suspension of the Public Celebration of Mass

    ⬥ Whereas the worldwide spread of the Covid -19, the coronavirus has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO),
    ⬥ Whereas it has been declared a National Emergency,
    ⬥ Whereas the State of Wisconsin has declared the spread of the illness to be a public health crisis, ⬥ ⬥ Whereas the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay is made up of almost 300,000 Catholics in Northeast Wisconsin,
    ⬥ Whereas the decree dated March 13, 2020, which dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect, and is hereby extended for the length of this suspension, (Canons 85-87)
    Therefore, in order to prevent further spread of this disease and to cooperate with public authorities in the work of precaution and public safety, and in light of the gravity of the situation, I hereby suspend the celebration of public Mass until further notice.
    Given at the Chancery on March 17, 2020.
    [S] Bishop David L. Ricken

     Pope Francis’ Prayer to Virgin Mary for Protection
    O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.

    Help us, Mother of Divine Love,

    to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

    We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.



    For all who have contracted coronavirus, we pray for care and healing.

    For those who are particularly vulnerable, we pray for safety and protection.

    For all who experience fear or anxiety, we pray for peace of mind and spirit.

    For affected families who are facing difficult decisions between food on the table or public safety,

    we pray for policies that recognize their plight.
    For those who do not have adequate health insurance,

    we pray that no family will face financial burdens alone.
    For those who are afraid to access care due to immigration status,

    we pray for recognition of the God-given dignity of all. For our brothers and sisters around the world,

    we pray for shared solidarity.
    For public officials and decision makers,

    we pray for wisdom and guidance.
    Father, during this time may your Church be a sign of hope, comfort and love to all. Grant peace. Grant comfort. Grant healing. Be with us, Lord. Amen.

  • The Bishop's Appeal

    And the king will say to them in reply, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

    Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal will help in countless ways. Care ministers are trained to go out and share the Gospel with the homebound and sick. Children and families are able to attend lively, interactive education programs learning the Word of God.
    A young woman in an abusive relationship is able,
    through counseling with Catholic Charities, to stand on her own feet. Families seeking to adopt are connected with newborn babies.
    Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes happy endings possible. 
    91% of every dollar raised goes to Diocesan ministries and services right here in northeastern Wisconsin.

    Make a tremendous difference, and give to the Bishop’s Appeal.
    How much you give is less important than the spirit in which you give.
    Even small donations add up to large donations.
    To make a gift today contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give, or call Tammy toll-free
    at 877-500-3580, ext. 8123.
