APRIL 12, 2015
Welcome Visitors and Friends!
Thank you for joining Us!
Though our building project is not quite completed, there are so many to
thank, and how do I do so properly without forgetting someone? If I were
to try to mention names I would no doubt forget someone and so I will
say thank you first of all to our entire parish, for moving forward with this
after a long, long time of planning. Next to the parish councils for their
dedication and difficulties in seeing this come to fruition, they have put in countless
hours, and in the end, decided we needed to move forward and our new space is a
wonderful sign of this. We thank the contractors, the committees, and anyone who
donated time, talent and/treasure through your gifts of one or all of these ways to be
good stewards. We thank all those instrumental in keeping things in order, including
those who oversaw the project, the bookkeeping for spending purposes and balancing and maintaining our trying to stay within the budget. And again, to anyone I’m
sure I’ve forgotten. And as I said, the building project is not complete yet, but once it
is we will have a finance report for you of the budget verses the actual costs, the
costs of fixing and shingling the current church, and I can tell you, that we did very
well in these areas, if we do end up over the budget, it really shouldn’t be by much.
Liturgy of the Hours: Week II of the Psalter
On Easter evening, the risen Jesus appears and shows the
disciples “his hands and his side.” It is Jesus who makes the
first, convincing move to enable the disciples to believe that
he has truly risen from the dead. It is he who wants the disciples to see him, to regain their confidence and peace. He
bears the marks of suffering and death. Yet he is risen; he has
conquered death. For himself and for all of us. Living Liturgy

“The community of believers was of one heart and
mind and no one claimed that any of his possessions
was his own.” - Acts 4:32
All that we are and all that we have is a gift from God!
Think of your family, your friends, your talents and
abilities – these are all gifts from God. We aren’t
really owners of anything, we are merely “stewards”
of the gifts God has blessed us with.

Summer Mass Schedule
St. Mary of the Lakes has lost the ministry of Fr. Jim Bernauer for their
10:30 a.m. masses on Sundays. This means that someone has to replace him, as the mass is needed for the summer families. Therefore,
the Diocese has told me, that Msgr. Tim McGee and Fr. Todd Arends
will be taking these masses, however in this, there are times when they
will be taking our 10am mass here at St. Francis out of convenience for
them, if their schedule demands this. This schedule will begin Sunday,
May 10th, and we will keep you informed.

Forgiveness Forum
Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 10am to 1pm
Lake Park Lutheran
Pastor Rod Spidahl and Rev. James Johnson are teaming up to
address many issues on forgiveness.
♦ Is it dishonest to offer or receive forgiveness when we
don’t “feel right˝ about a person?
♦ Why is it such a hard struggle to deal with forgiveness in
practical (daily) or family situations?
♦ Is forgiveness of sins a special aspect of the Lutheran
faith, or is it common to all religious faiths?
No Pre-registration, no charge.
(It would be helpful for hospitality planning to call the
Church office 238-5823 to indicate how many will attend.)
For Traveling Catholics call 1-800-627-7846
or www.masstimes.or for Mass times in the
area you are traveling.

Seasons of the Moral Life
Theology Day at Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary
As we get older, our conceptions of the moral life might change or need deepening. Familiar and learned
frameworks, rules, and standards might not address or answer our current questions. Join Kathy Lilla Cox,
Ph.D., as she explores new developments in neuroscience and psychology. She shows how these advances in science can help us deepen our understanding of the human person, show us our capacity for
change, and have significant implications for morality as we age. April 17, check-in 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
and presentation from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Emmaus Hall, SJU, Collegeville. Free event. Lunch provided.
Registration is required:, 320-363-3570 or

Sunday evening along with the coffee.
We need 4 pans of bars and 2 women

bars. They may be brought to the church
