Polka Mass at SJEC 10AM on Sunday, May 18
The Bob Kuether Band comes to St. James Episcopal Church for our 10AM
worship on Sunday, May 18 to provide music for a Polka Mass. Polka music
with lyrics adapted to a worship setting will replace our hymns and service
music on that day and some dancing in the aisles is encouraged! Our choir
will rehearse the music and will lead our congregation in singing along.
Bob is the son of long-time member Lee Kuether, and formed his own band
in 1970. His band consists of keyboards, accordion, trumpets, tenor sax, and
percussion and they play polkas and dance music at venues all over
northeast Wisconsin. Bob, with his wife Eileen, played their first polka mass
about 6 years ago at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Newton. The polka
mass tradition began in the 1970s. Various bands have adapted and shared
commonly used hymn lyrics and popular polka tunes. Bob’s son, Mark,
played the piano before our 10AM Easter morning service.
Plan to attend Fellowship Hour after the service -- German, Czech and
Bohemian treats will be served. Please feel free to invite friends, neighbors
and polka enthusiasts to SJEC on this fun day!

St James Episcopal Church - Manitowoc, WI
From the Desk of Amma Diane
One of the marks of an Episcopal church is that we are not a
stand-alone, independent church. We believe that all people
can worship and pray individually, but that there is value to
be in worship, prayer, and fellowship with others. Similarly,
our churches make some decisions and do some things
individually, but we also do things as part of a larger body.
Sometimes that body is with our neighboring Episcopal
churches or with churches within our Deanery, but many
times it may be within the diocesan or denominational context.
The ordination and consecration of our new Bishop, Matthew Gunter, is an
example of The Episcopal Church gathering (the denominational level).
There are several events or services that will happen over the next several
months that will be diocesan or regional gatherings. It is my hope that many
of us from St. James Episcopal Church will attend or participate. I believe we
at SJEC have much that would be of value shared with other folks in our
diocese, and no one can share who we are and what we do as well as we can.
Pray for these events and join in them if you are able. Check the diocesan
calendar at for still more opportunities.
Saturday, May 17 at 1PM Bishop Gunter will be enthroned (given his
official seat at the Cathedral)
Sunday, June 8 from 1-4PM SJEC will host a “Meet and Greet” for Bishop
Matt and his wife Leslie. People from around the diocese will come to our
church to introduce themselves to and to learn more about the Gunters.
June 12-26 is the Diocesan Summer Camp and we will have at least 6
people from SJEC participating in camp.
Saturday, June 28 at 11AM the Eucharistic festival will be held at St. Paul’s
Cathedral in Fond du Lac. Our UTO donation will be made there.
Sunday, August 10 SJEC will host a diocesan Cursillo Ultreya, that can be
attended by people regardless of previous Cursillo weekend attendance.
Let us continue to lift one another up, support one another, and live into the
kind of life Christ modeled for us. Let us gather regularly for worship and
fellowship, not just on major holidays. May we also invite others to join us!
Blessings this Easter season.
Amma Diane

Learn with Us: Episcopal 101 — Fermentum
This column is a tool for all of us to learn more about The
Episcopal Church.
This month we’ll learn about
Fermentum. ~Amma Diane
During the season of Easter we are continually reminded of the
development of community among the early apostles, those
sent out by Christ to do God’s work in the world. It
is hard — many would say impossible — to be a
solitary Christian. Indeed, in history, and even
today, there are Christian people nicknamed
“solitary” as they practice a form of piety of living
alone and following a life of daily prayer. Even
these solitaries were in community with fellow
Christians or seekers from time to time.
This community (or being in communion with one
another) is one characteristic of The Episcopal Church. One
way we are in communion with others in our Diocese of Fond
du Lac is through the use of Fermentum.
In the Diocese of Fond du Lac, the Fermentum we use is a
piece of a Communion wafer that has been blessed during the
annual Chrism Mass held during Holy Week at our Cathedral.
A Bishop celebrates at this service and the clergy of the diocese
are invited to take a piece of the large communion wafer back
to their local church. This piece of bread is then put into the
chalice of wine at one of the congregation’s Eucharist
(Communion) services symbolizing our unity with one another
in the diocese.
This custom (of communion between churches)
has been recorded in the history of the church as
far back as 120 AD. It is believed to have been a
reference for our coming together for Communion
as a way to receive “leaven” for our lives as
Christians and to be a way for early Christians to
spread the unity of the Body of Christ throughout
the world. It is a pledge of unity of faith, this being
the origin of the expression to be in communion with each
other, and such communion already considered essential to
Christianity in the 2nd-century writings of St. Ignatius of
Antioch and St. Irenaeus.
“Telling Our Faith Stories” June 1 & 3
Most of us struggle with how to share our faith story with
others. Maybe we have figured out how to talk to people
in our faith community a bit about why we go to church,
pray, etc., but even that can be difficult. The idea of
talking with someone who might be a friend, family
member, acquaintance or even a stranger may seem next
to impossible. Maybe your feel ready to share your faith
journey, but just want to have a plan on how to do this.
"Telling Our Faith Stories" may give you that help,
nudge, boost or idea you have been looking for. The
downReach Ministry Group is offering two opportunities
to learn about ways to tell our faith stories These
learning opportunities will be Sunday, June 1, from
11:30AM – 1:00pm and Tuesday, June 3, from 6:30–
8:00pm. The same content will be taught at each session,
so you may attend either one or both as you desire.
Sharing our Christian faith story is really an ongoing
process as our personal story develops. That being said,
there are some simple, straight-forward ways to share
your faith (Christianity) with others in ways that will not
be threatening to any one in the conversation. During
this session we will offer a variety of options for you to
learn, practice, think about and try. Sharing our Christian
story is part of what Christ told us to do!
Thank You!
Our Wine & Cheese party after the Easter Vigil was a
huge success. Many thanks to those who made it great.
First to the people who created our centerpieces: Audrey
Bean, Liese Carbon, Nancy Hoover, Sudi Johnson, Sharon
Meany, and Liz Schrank; to Janet Casperson who created
our serving area; to Dan Hornung who strung our mood
lighting and made the punch and to everyone who
contributed food and wine. It was a great way to
celebrate Easter. Thank you.

KinderChurch Sundays at 9AM
addition to our weekly
schedule offered in the
Chapel at 9AM Sundays,
launched on April 6.
KinderChurch is designed around a congregation of children with
adults, rather than a congregation of adults with children. Anyone
is welcome to attend either or both services: 9AM KinderChurch
and 10AM worship. KinderChurch lasts approximately 40 minutes
and may include: music, Scripture, Eucharist (Communion),
conversation, activities, prayers and possibly a snack. Much of this
liturgy is of a hands-on, participatory nature as people are
In the four weeks we have had KinderChurch people from 9
different households participated; eleven young people and 10
adults, with numbers of people on any given Sunday varying from 4
to 14 and ages from 8 months to 60+ years. We are beginning a
community. The Spirit is moving, God is with us, and it is good!

Happening Recap
Alex Handl and Zach Handl would like to thank the people of St.
James Episcopal Church for helping make their attendance at the
most recent Diocesan Happening Weekend possible. The weekend
was held at All Saints Episcopal Church in Appleton and Bishop
Matt Gunter attended the weekend. They enjoyed renewing
friendships made at the Diocesan Summer Camp, made new
friends, liked the music and the time in Christian community. To
quote Alex: "It was AWESOME!"
What is Happening? From the National Happening website:
During the Happening weekend (beginning Friday evening and
continuing through Sunday afternoon) there are activities designed
for fun and Christian community building among participants.
Throughout the weekend a series of talks are presented by youth
and clergy to logically present the elements that define a mature
profession of faith and the catechism process. The presentation of
key talks by youth using personal life experiences is intended to offer
Christ’s message to attending Happeners on a level they can
understand, and to answer many of the faith questions youth
struggle with daily. Talks about church teachings and their
importance in the lives of youth attending the weekend are
presented by clergy in a fair and friendly manner. Each talk is a
critical building block in the creation of the Happening message.
The entire series of talks is given in a sequence that is intended to
guide Happeners by opening an avenue of discussions to help them
verbalize and internalize their faith questions in a safe environment
and hopefully lead to a renewed or new relationship with Christ.

RUTH Thank You
THANK YOU for TWO years of faithful effort!
April 15, 2014
From: RUTH (Responding with Truth, Understanding & Hope)
All faith Communities of Manitowoc County
The WI state legislature recently approved a $1.5 million annual
increase to the TAD (Treatment Alternatives and Diversions)
fund. This builds on the $1.5 increase that was approved in the
summer of 2013. This means that, in the past year, funding has
gone from $1 million per year to $4 million per year. Based on the
past performance of TAD programs, we can conservatively
estimate that the $3 million/year increase will result in:
At least 150 fewer prison admissions per year
At least 850 fewer county jail admissions per year
A net savings to Wisconsin taxpayers of at least $3 million
1,000 fewer people will be incarcerated every year! It is rare that
we can see so clearly the positive impact of our work for
justice. Thanks go to everyone who has participated in any way
with RUTH in the “11x15 Campaign for Healthier and Safer
Communities” with our WISDOM partners throughout the state.

Fellowship Hour on Sundays: Would you like to join a
team? Our Fellowship Hour after worship on Sundays is in the
hands of two capable teams who set up the coffee, bring various
treats, and clean up afterwards. Additional volunteers bring a
treat to share or pitch in to help whenever they are able.
The “Saints” team (Eleanor Agnew, Amy Healey, Dan Hornung,
Sudi Johnson, Anne Schuette, Geri Walker and Alison Weinert)
covers the first two Sundays of every month. The “Disciples”
team (Jon Buggs, Anne Flynn, Cindy Connolly, Kim Kaufmann,
Judy Lavicka, Sherry Paszkiewicz, Steve Thuss, Dianne Wilson,
Chuck Wernecke) are responsible for the third and fourth
Sundays of each month. Whenever we have a fifth Sunday, we
put out a call for volunteers.

Eleanor, Anne, Ruby or Judy – the team coordinators – and they
will help you figure out a schedule that works for you. THANKS!
Attention ministers: If you know in advance any
Sundays you will be unable to attend, please let Tony
