ANOINTING OF THE SICK: A communal celebration of Anointing of the Sick is held
annually. Individual celebrations can be arranged by calling the parish office.
RCIA: Adults seeking Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and/or Eucharist please
contact the parish office.
Our Baptismal Preparation sessions are held on the Third Monday of
each month at 6:30 PM in the Narthex of the Church.
We would encourage parents to attend this gathering prior to the birth
of their child. At this time, life is a little less hectic than when trying to
adjust to a new family member and sleepless nights.
It is important for both parents to be a part of this preparation for Baptism. Therefore if you work the night shift please let us know and another time will be set up with the team coordinator.
Because the role of Godparents is important in helping to share, support and nurture your child’s growth in faith, they are most welcome to
attend with you.
To register for Baptismal Preparation, please call the Rectory at

“...but after me one is coming, the sandals of whose feet I am

Stewardship is recognizing that everything we have is a gift from God. We
can take credit for nothing. Do you take time daily to thank God for the
gifts you have received? Do you show gratitude to God every day? Are
you generous without expecting anything in return?

Tap Into Theology
All young adults in their 20's and 30's
Kris Kranenburg will be speaking for Tap Into Theology on Thursday, June 28th, on “The Second Vatican Council: What
Happened?” The evening begins at 7 p.m. at the Speakeasy, 19 N
High Street in Janesville.
Some people love Vatican II. Some people hate Vatican II. Yet very
few people have actually read the history or writings of the Council.
This presentation explores the The Second Vatican Council's purpose, documents, and the inside story of what really happened.
Kris Kranenburg is on the faculty of the Diocese of Madison's Seat of
Wisdom Diocesan Institute. She has a Master of Theological Studies
degree from Ave Maria University and teaches at the University of
Wisconsin-Whitewater. Kris has worked with parishes and Catholic
schools on websites, faith formation, and communication. She lives
in Janesville, Wisconsin and is blessed with a wonderful husband and
two amazing children.
Married, single, practicing your faith or not practicing your faith, all
are welcome! This is a great opportunity to enrich your faith and
form fellowship with other young adults.
Drinks will be provided. Dinner may be ordered. If you have any questions, contact
Jeff by phone at 262-366-3542, or email at [email protected] We hope to see you there!
