A Family of Faith
With our new format for religious education we would like to formally invite our parish family to join us on Wednesdays (St. Mary and Holy Family-St. William) and Saturdays (St. Anthony).
We will have a meal followed by conversations about our Catholic faith. You are welcome to join us for the dinner or stay for the whole evening! We would be happy to have you join us!
Please check the calendar for specific times at each parish.
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) for our three parishes is held on an as needed basis.
The program is run by Deb Brandt, Pastoral Coordinator, with the help of wonderful, dedicated parishioners the teachings of the Catholic faith are done by team members, other parishioners, Fr. Matt, or invited speakers. Witness talks are also an important part of the program. Candidates arrive at various milestones throughout the year, with the reception into the Catholic Church and the receiving of the Sacraments happening at the Easter Vigil Mass. If you have any questions about joining the Catholic Church, or in learning more about our amazing Church, call Deb at 715-535-2571.
This program is designed to educate, spiritually enrich, and inspire us to more deeply learn about our rich Catholic Faith through the utilization of the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Context includes:
- The Creed
- The Sacraments
- Moral Life
All learned with the hope that it will aid and guide in deepening the faithful. All are welcome!!
All parishioners of our three parishes are encouraged to come and help pass on the faith to those who are interested in learning it. Come, learn, and evangelize!
There are 3 local Food Pantries supported by our Three Parish Catholic Family. They are:
- MAMA's House of Hope in Marion
- The Community Cupboard in Tigerton
- Wittenberg Food Pantry in Wittenberg.
Our Three Parishes collect all non-perishable food items and general household necessities on an ongoing basis. Collection baskets are located in all three parishes. These items are brought to the pantries and distributed on a weekly basis to those in need. In the recent economy, there has been a noticeable increase in need and we are grateful for the generous support of our parishioners in filling this need.
May God Bless and Thank all those who are filling this need and fulfilling our true calling to feed the hungry.
Catholic Council of Women
The Catholic Council of Women is an organization of women committed to caring and tending to the needs of the world, our community and our parishes.
A wonderful organization for all ladies that love to help others. Currently, Holy Family - St. William of Wittenberg and St. Anthony of Tigerton have functionally operating C.C.W.'s in their parishes.
St. Mary's of Marion has started the "Daughters of Mary" ladies group that is active in assisting with social issues.
St. Anthony in Tigerton currently has the only Quilt Group in our Three Parish Catholic Family, where all are welcome to join this active group.
They meet once a week with periodic breaks throughout the year. Their ministry provides many warm quilts for those in need, not only in our area, but all around the USA.
The quilts are for all ages of life and cover many people in various needs, including our parishioner babies and the homebound. Hundred of quilts are made each year through this group.
