Missionary Fraternity of Mary

February 27, 2020

Come and join the Holy Family Stewardship Commission’s “educational panel discussion” on the Missionary Fraternity of Mary, the religious order from which our archdiocese has received many wonderful priests, including our own Fr. Fabian and Fr. Max. This event will take place at Holy Family Hall on Thursday, February 27, beginning at 6:00 pm. A light supper will be served. Included on the panel will be Mike and Mary Cezarz from Lumen Christi Parish, Mequon, Jim and Kathy Simon, Fond du Lac, Fr. Max Tzul and Fr. Fabian Rodas, and the Development Director of the order, Fr. Jaime Charuc. The Missionary Fraternity of Mary has been designated as Holy Family’s new international charity and will be receiving all Holy Family parishioner contributions from a special collection that will be taking place during Lent, and then again for the Propagation of the Faith weekend collection, in August. The Lenten envelopes that many of our parishioners receive through the mail will be directed toward this order, as well. Please call the parish office, (920) 9210580, and register with the receptionist if you plan to attend so we have an accurate count for the meal that will be served. Also, if you are interested in making a special donation to the order at any time, or have any questions, please contact Gail Kraig or the parish office.

Parish Mission

March 2, 2020 - March 3, 2020

Ken Yasinski's Fullness of Purpose parish mission is transforming people's lives. This event is designed specifically to re-evangelize the baptized. It was created to help participants encounter Jesus Christ, and become his faithful disciple.

Monday, March 2, 2020   6:30 pm
Tuesday, March 3, 2020   6:30 pm

Holy Family Catholic Church 271 Fourth Street Way Fond du Lac, WI 54937

Day 1, Monday, March 2: What Is The Purpose Of My Life? Have you ever wondered if there was a greater purpose for your life? One of the greatest sufferings is not having a reason for living. A person can put a band aid on a cut, pop a pill for a headache, but when a person has no purpose they lose their way. Their passion for life is lost, and any little additional suffering is magnified. In this presentation Ken shares vulnerably his faith journey. He opens up about his struggle to find meaning in life. How his battle with anxiety and low self worth eventually lead to despair. No longer did the Catholic Church seem relevant. God seemed dead. How did things change? That is the rest of the story. Audiences will:
• learn why God created them
• understand what happens when we live in contradiction to God's purpose
• be inspired to a greater purpose in life
• gain a higher appreciation for God's personal love
• be challenged to make a personal decision of faith.

Day 2, Tuesday, March 3: Living With An Eternal Perspective Do you have a life goal: a clear vision of the type of person you want to become and a plan of how to get there? Most people do not. They float through life, living day to day, never giving any thought to the last moment of their life. If we have no vision, we lose our way. In this presentation Ken shares a riveting personal experience of being mugged in the jungles of St. Lucia, and how facing death greatly influenced his world view. Audiences will:
• be inspired to live with an eternal perspective
• be reminded that sainthood is possible for all
• learn the two things we can bring into heaven with us • learn 3 spiritual principles to apply in everyday living, that will help us grow in holiness

Musical Eucharist Adoration immediately following the talk each evening.
