  • A Morning for those Considering the Diaconate | August 26

    Gentlemen: Have you ever considered becoming a deacon?
    Do you have questions about what's all involved?
     

    The is for all men (and their wives) who have ever had even a fleeting thought that they may be interested in becoming a deacon. Here is a chance, in a local setting, to learn more about what is entailed in the diaconate formation process, as well as what it is like to minister as a deacon in a parish.

    Join Deacons Tom, Gerry and John on Saturday, August 26 from 9 - 11 am in the Our Lady of the Lakes' Community Room 230, Butler St., Random Lake, WI 53075.

    The morning will begin with a presentation by Deacon John Ebel, the Director of Diaconate Formation for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. John will explain the formation process for deacons: what diaconate formation entails, what is required of their wives, how long formation takes, etc. He will allow a time for questions and answers.

    The second hour will be a chance to hear from Deacons Tom & Gerry. Tom Surges is the deacon at St. John XXIII parish in Port Washington. Gerry Malueg is the Deacon at Divine Savior in Fredonia and Our Lady of the Lakes in Random Lake. They will talk about their ministry as deacons in their parishes, the joys and challenges of diaconal ministry, and more. They are happy to address any questions you may have.

    Tom's wife, Jean, will also be present to answer questions from wives about being a deacon's wife.

    Please contact Deb Hamm to register at ministerofaging@hotmail.com or 262.488.4542. Registration is appreciated, but not required.

    The Martha and Mathews are a group that meet to do light cleaning and polishing in the Church once a month. The brass needs polishing, the kneeler pads need replacing, mopping of certain areas and making sure the pews are clean and respectable are just some of the duties.
     
    Do you have an hour or two to help keep our church looking so beautiful? Maybe you would want to form a small group and work together.
     
    The parishioners that have been doing this are in their 80’s and 90’s. They could use some help! If you can find the time please give Adam Hartung a call and he can give you the details 262-252-8073.

    Several years ago I asked the parish to commit to a multi-year project to include connected WIFI coverage across the entire campus. We have completed the last stage now in improved coverage in the parish center and the church itself. Once you save the information, you can walk from one end of the building to the other and stay connected to the same system. I encourage the healthy use of electronics, even in church, when they are used to help pray, to read the readings ahead of time, or to communicate with those who ought be with you at Mass. 

    If you want to use our WIFI network, connect to “GUESTS” and use the password: “ckguest06”. Thanks, as always, to your dollars in the collection basket that help us improve what we can offer as a parish.
