Thank you to everyone who made or renewed their Stewardship Commitment this last weekend.  If you have not turned in your card yet, please drop it by the parish office ASAP.  You should be receiving a letter or phone call within the next two weeks about the ministry you signed up for.  If you don’t hear anything by Tuesday, October 22 please call the parish office.

Attention Men!
Have you ever wondered if the church has anything to say to men as men?  Here are some upcoming opportunities specifically for Catholic men who wish to grow in their faith.
  • Come to the first ever webcast at St. Rose/St. Mary’s!  Fr. Richard Rohr will be talking with men from around the globe about what it means to be a Christian man in the world today.  On Sunday, October 24, we will gather at 12:30pm in the St. Rose parish meeting room (the webcast begins at 1pm) and spend some time discussing Fr. Richard’s insights after the webcast.  You can find more information about the webcast at:  http://www.cacradicalgrace.org/conferences/webcast/2010-series/end-of-men/  We should be done by 2:30pm.  Don’t worry, the Packers don’t play until 7pm so there will be plenty of time for pre-game festivities after the webcast.  Maybe we could even conclude the gathering with a prayer for the Packers!
  • The Norbertine Center for Spirituality at St. Norbert’s Abbey in De Pere is hosting a Morning of Spiritual Renewal for Men on Saturday, October 30 from 8am-1pm.  Cost is $30 and includes beverages, rolls, lunch and attendance at any of the sessions.  During this morning of spirituality, outstanding speakers will be offering workshops to help men get in touch with their faith and what God asks of them.  For more information call Lincoln at 715-823-3416 or the Norbertine Center #920-337-4315.  Act fast, registrations are due by October 22.  You can also register online at:  http://www.norbertines.org/day_of_renewal.html
  • Stay tuned for more details about my Advent book discussion on “On the Threshold of Transformation:  Meditations for Men” by Fr. Richard Rohr.
