  • Welcome     

    During this Lenten Season,
    we praise God for His righteous Son, who perfectly kept all of God’s commandments for us and paid the full price of our disobedience.
    Let us praise Him withhearts filled with Christ’s spirit and obedience.

    Jesus took Peter, James, and John
    and led them up a high mountain
    apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them. - Mk 9:2-3

    Each Catholic is asked to preserve the penitential purpose and character of Lent. Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays in Lent and Good Friday.
    In addition to abstaining from meat, Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday until they celebrate their 59th birthday are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
    Those who are bound to this regulation may only eat one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.
     These practices are designed for spiritual growth. Catholics are not to excuse themselves lightly from these
    prescribed minimal penitential practices.

  • Bishop Ricken
    Will Broadcast Sunday Masses Again...

    Bishop Ricken commented:
    ‘I am extremely pleased to announce that after hearing from so many viewers, the 
    television broadcast of Sunday morning Mass will resume on WFRV Local 5 at 10:00 AM.’

    The broadcast Sunday Massoriginates from St. Francis Xavier Cathedral in downtown Green Bay. While the ultimate goal is for the faithful to return to Mass in their own parishes, it has become evident there is a great need 
    within the Diocese to serve those unable to attend in person.

    Bishop Rickens said,
    ‘We hope this broadcast will help reach those who are homebound, as well as those in hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, or anywhere else where getting to church isn’t an option. I offer my sincere thanks to WFRV Local 5 for their willingness to continue broadcasting Sunday Mass, especially during these difficult times.’

    If/When you are not able to participate at Mass in person, be sure to participate in the virtual Mass with Bishop Rickent at 10 AM as described above. God bless!
