    Below is part of Bishop Ricken’s article on HOPE in the COMPASS
    on Dec 23, 2020
    “One of the best encouragements we
    can give to one another is to point to
    our reasons for hope. Take some time
    this Christmas season to reflect on your
    reasons for hope. Let the grace of the
    Holy Spirit flow into your mind and
    heart, and then share your reasons with others. This, friends, is a way to build up each other and build the church.”

    Thank you to the Art and Environment Committee of Lakewood, the Decorating Committees of Silver Cliff and Crooked Lake, all the ladies and gentlemen of the

    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!
